America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

I agree fully with the article, Sheldon. A question, with the Feds inflationary policy and the Keynesian hatred of all things deflationary, wouldn't the Fed intervene and attempt to keep prices inflated? Understanding once the US government actually cut spending and quit bidding prices up in the market, wouldn't the Fed intervene and keep the deflating prices from giving their benefit to consumers?
