I personally don’t need 100 reasons. It should be audited, a real audit of discussions at the FOMC etc., tomorrow. Heck, I don’t even need it audited. Closing it down would be a better idea.
But for those who need to learn a little more about why the Federal Reserve is the prime mover of crony capitalism Zerohedge has provided us with a nice long list of grievances against the institution.
Most Americans don’t realize this, but the Federal Reserve has far more power over the economy than anyone else does – including Barack Obama.
Financial markets all over the planet gyrate wildly at the smallest comment from Fed officials, and virtually every boom and bust cycle over the past 100 years can be traced directly back to specific decisions made by the Federal Reserve. We get all excited about what various presidential candidates say that they “will do for the economy”, but in the end it is the Fed that is holding all of the cards. The funny thing is that the Federal Reserve is not even part of the federal government. It is an independent private central bank that was designed by very powerful Wall Street interests a little over 100 years ago. It is at the heart of the debt-based financial system which is eating away at America like cancer, and it has no direct accountability to the American people whatsoever.
The Fed has been around for so long that most people assume that we need it.
But the truth is that we don’t actually need the Federal Reserve. In fact, the greatest period of economic growth in United States history happened during the decades before the Federal Reserve was created.
