Editors note: At the end of a great discussion on where we are headed as a country, former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal and Business Week, Paul Craig Roberts, who served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, earning fame as the "Father of Reaganomics,", was asked this "What should the Treasury Secretary be doing?"
"....saving the dollar."
"Does the US Treasury Secretary work for the people or does he work for the baking system on Wall Street?"
"He works for Goldman Sachs !"

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".
