Seventeen Years of Boom and Bust

http://mises.org

The Federal Reserve must bear responsibility for our current recession. The seeds for this recession were planted in 1995 and led to unsustainable booms and busts. Then to high unemployment, increased consumer prices, failed companies and increased debt.
Many of today's discussions of our current economic problems begin with the assumption that 2008 was when the problems started. In fact, they started in 1995. From January 1990 to December 1994 the M2 money supply increased a relatively mild $322 billion. But then, from January 1995 to December 1999, the M2 money supply shot up to a startling $1,140 billion. The result of the increase was the making of the dot-com boom followed by the dot-com bust in 2000.
