I'm pledging 5 BTC to the best refutation of this video (when it comes out).

http://stlouisfed.org/education_resources/videocontest.cfm

"The St. Louis Fed is sponsoring a YouTube video contest. We want your original video that explains the concept of central bank independence. What does independence mean for a nation's central bank? Let us know through your video creation! (See the links below for additional information on this topic.)"

Would anyone else be interested?

You want a refutation in the form of a video or short essay or what?

I love the built-in rhetoric of the Fed's contest. It's not a video to argue why central banks are important (because we all know society can't exist without them!), but rather why "independence" of the central bank is important.

If you need a written refutation, I'll happily provide one for 5 btc

Sorry, I actually meant a video refutation using Youtube's "Video Reply" option.  I think that would get the largest audience.

This is a waste of money. Invest your BTC into bitcoin instead.

I love that the prize is a savings bond, when they could've just printed the cash.

Meanwhile, they can print 10x its value for even more lending.  Weeee!

They wont even print 90% of that loaned money, just digitally transfer it around. Much cheaper that way.
