    I think if you recheck the facts, you will find:

    A) that the money supply contracted in those years

    B) That the economy experienced deflation, not inflation

    C) That Meyer Rothschild died in 1812, over 100 years before the FRS.

    I don't know about them doing this between '29-'32, but I'm pretty sure they did it in 1933 and beyond.

    But that is what Central Banks do. They create and destroy money in an attempt to stabilize the economy. As for inflation, it didn't really exist in the America in the 30s'. America was in a Deflation during that time. Money was scarce. It wasn't until after World War II that inflation started to creep up.
