As a Economics Major w/ a minor in 20th century History, I'd say your list is definitely a reflection of your ideology rather than a list based on accomplishments or what was right for the time.
The gold standard is widely credited for the length of the Great Depression. A national bank is a good thing. The Fed and the establishment of the FDIC gave people a reason to trust banks in the 1930s.
Yeah OP seems to be of the Austrian/Libertarian/Hayek school of thought
fwiw I thought The Gold Standard was a bigger factor in the Long Depression (1873-1879/96), since didn't America abandon the Gold Standard part way through the Great Depression?
Gold did play a big role in the 1873 depression. There was a run on gold internationally, which led to a huge outflow from the U.S. Treasury. The US abandoned silver in 1873. This hurt people who had silver dollars. Even when silver is put back in circulation in 1878, it's never as good as gold. So everyone always wanted gold. Hence, the outflows.
We did start to ease off the Gold Standard during the Great Depression. The Federal Government could now set the price of gold. This rose the price of gold, which increased the money supply , which allowed banks to lend more.
Brenttonwoods had every countries currency pegged to the dollar, and the US was pegged to gold. The US was the most stable country 1944 when Brenttonwoods was put in place.
We didn't fulling abandon the gold standard until 1971.
There was an international trend with abandoning the gold standard and that country recovery time during the great depression.
