In Your Opinion (Banks, Government)

How much power do the politicians have? Do they set the agenda for this monetary system or do the big banks own the government?

Its done through consensus but there are government organizations with far reaching abilities.

It just means we need a lawyer contingency fund for the inevitable of whats going to happen.

First off, I hate it when people use word as "Government" and "Banks", because it doesn't directly point to anyone. The government and banks are made up of individuals. It's our job to put bad corrupt individuals out of power. There are good people and bad people in government and banks. Point fingers at the individual people that need to be removed put in front of a judge and don't generalize it to just government or banks, unless all of them are corrupt.

Besides corrupt individuals, there are corrupt practices. Fractional reserve banking comes to mind. And there are honest, but unaware, people using corrupt practices.
