Fed Retreat .... please

End the Fed by Ron Paul

Key Federal Reserve officials and invited guests are currently meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at the Kansas City Fed's Economic Symposium. Sometimes called a retreat this annual Fed meeting is an important gathering of the cabal that controls how much your money, the US dollar, is worth.

The big question again is how much will the Fed debase the greenback as the risk of a double dip recession has increased.

Having this small group of elitists decide who to punish (savers) and who to help (bankers) turns democracy and capitalism on its head. I don't suppose any widows and orphans are represented. You can bet there are no "savers" there, plain working folks who would just like to put their hard earned money in a hopefully safe savings account or money market fund and earn a decent and fair interest rate for their savings.

No luck for the thrifty. The Fed's little bankster gathering will scheme up ways to plump up bank profits at the expense of the frugal. The Federal Reserve System that has been lashed to backs of American consumers is a serial debaser of wealth and prosperity.

There is a growing number of "End the Fed" voices (note: most economists have been "bought" by the Fed). Yes, it is time for the Federal Reserve to retreat, all the way to the dust bin of history, and be replaced by something that does not promote bubbles, busts, and inflation.
