President Woodrow Wilson
A great Industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.
I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country.
(President regretted signing into law the Federal Reserve Act)
