Central Banks: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result

Since the inception of central bank controls over the currency of nations, the primary tool used to attempt to create economic growth has been to expand the money supply.  This primary economic theory is known as Keynesianism, and is based on the belief that growth can be created and expanded through central bank and government intervention to artifically create higher GDP.

However, the truth bears out that this has been a failed policy in the long run, and eventually, every fiat currency devalues to the point where the currency collapses, or an economy collapses due to failed confidence in the system.  And yet, even for faux expert economists like Paul Krugman, facts are not powerful enough to dissuade men from failed beliefs and policies, and the result is an economic system that does the same thing over and over, expecting a different result, and bleating for more money infusion when their policies accomplish little.

A new graph shows how detrimental Keynesian theory and central bank money expansion is to creating growth in an economy, and makes the argument that current government polices are being done either to purposefully crash the system, or are run by men and women with mental disasbilities.

This chart proves beyond any discussion that more equals less in relation to money infusion and economic growth.  When a currency devalues from too much in the system, prices may rise, but actual growth will stymie and eventually retrace.  However, the money printers will also be left holding the bag, having to print more and more money to pay interest and debt, since economic growth revenues will shrink accordingly.
