However, to put a few points straight that you have pointed out, central banks on the whole have always been privately owned but never in human history has a privately owned bank been able to do anything apart from advise or threaten a government, given fiscal control they will be able to openly dictate policy to governments, admittedly initially only on fiscal matters but money makes the world go round so how deep and how far they go only time will tell.
Are you sure? The US Federal Reserve is owned by various banks, ie. it's not owned nor controlled by the US gov't.

Anyway, see this as a stop gap measure to "fix" the problem then spin out of it and re-instate all the old currencies. Well, that would be nice wouldn't it?
