DNA studies prove that one third to one half of the convicted men were innocent. Suicide by men increased to five times that by women.  The rate of fatherlessness octupled and put half of the nation's children in fatherless households. The value of the dollar declined ten fold by the gold standard (from $38/oz to $380/oz).  We spent more money for welfare than the value of every Fortune 500 corporation and every acre of farm land, combined.   The percent of the world's autos supplied by U.S. manufacturers declined from 60% to 20%.  Government spending increased from 4 cents to 42 cents of each wage dollar, while it remains at 22 cents in other industrialized nations like Japan.  GDP per worker decreased two thirds by the gold standard while the Public Debt increased 9 fold to $5.9 trillion, consumer debt increased to $1.2 trillion, and housing debt increased to $3.9 trillion.  The U.S. became the largest debtor nation in world history with an average net worth per household of a *negative* $77,000 and is the only industrialized nation in the world with a NEGATIVE Personal Savings rate.  Interest payments on the debts increased to greater than the gross savings rate of 15% of GDP for the first time since the Great Depression, yet Japan continued to save 33% per year with almost no debt payments.  Gross savings decreased from $18 trillion to less than zero at the same time that Japan's monetary base increased to $73 trillion.  Forty million fellow Americans never saw the light of day because they were aborted [read: MURDERED in the eyes of 57% of Americans] in what God intended to be the safest place in the world for them.  The "drug war" was followed by a 45% increase in cocaine use.  Violent crime increased 560%, illegitimate births increased 419%, and single-parent households increased 3000%.  Criminal Justice System expenditures increased ten fold to $360 billion and now exceed national defense by $100 billion.   Our balance of payments, which was positive for two centuries before the CRA, is now almost half a trillion dollars in the red.  Feminism became a nationwide disease and left 25 million American children without natural parents.
