    I am a most unhappy man. I accidentally ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.

While exercising the great powers of the office I hold, I would regret in a crisis like the one through which we are now passing to lose the benefit of patriotic and intelligent criticism.
    — Woodrow Wilson

    The treasury of America lies in those ambitions, those energies, that cannot be restricted to a special favored class.
