Are Central Banks Worthy of Trust?

In an essay on Edmund Burke’s view of the nature of government, Murray Rothbard quoted him as saying:

In vain you tell me that Artificial Government is good, but that I fall out only with the Abuse. The Thing! The Thing itself is the Abuse!” 

“Our complaint isn’t just with “abuse of the system,” it is with the system itself! The system is the abuse. Everything else is a symptom, a surface issue.”
