You must check out this amazing chart chronicling the value of the dollar since 1800. Government inflation of the money supply during war destroyed the dollar. The War of 1812, the War for Southern Independence (the Civil War), the European War (WWI), and WWII all led the government to create money. A dollar from 1800 is now only work 8 cents. Imagine if you had been left an inheritance of $10,000 by an ancestor who lived in 1800, and you had just put it into a bank. That inheritance would only buy the equivalent of $800 today. Put another way, $800 today should really be worth $10,000. The missing $9,200 was stolen through money creation perpetrated by the U.S. federal government and the banks in the Federal Reserve Cartel.
