Texas Governor Rick Perry recently accused Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, of potential treason connected with the anticipated printing of more U.S. currency to “ease” and revive a moribund economy by buying both corporate and government debt in an effort to lower borrowing costs and increase employment.
