hi there

So I really enjoyed Peter Schiff's latest book "How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes" so much that I've started giving it to other people to read. The first person I loaned it to me asked who really killed Max Goodbank? In other words which historical character(s) does Max Goodbank represent when he gets "whacked" by the Senate's guards by order of Franky (what seems to be symbolizing the FDR administration)?

I didn't have a ready answer.

Is the murder just symbolic or did someone die in suspicious circumstances?

Thanks.

My guess:

Goodbank being killed is a metaphor for free market banking being killed.
