What's your problem with the Fed? And what would you replace it with?
The Fed was created as an imperfect solution to the financial crises of the early 20th century. The idea was that bankers understood the money supply and could do a better job than politicians, since politician had a long history of screwing up the money supply, and better that the creation and destruction of money should be in the hands of bankers than politicians. LOL: Y!A's suggested category for this question was "Pregnancy & Parenting > Newborn & Baby" Of course there have since been numerous attempts to interfere with the Fed, but the consensus is that it's the best solution we've got. It has been argued that the Fed could be replaced by a computer --- that the amount of money to be created or destroyed can be calculated from measures of economic activity, and there should be no human interference at all. In a modern society, the money supply must be regulated somehow. Even the gold standard is a regulation of a sort. So, what do you propose instead? Yes, I understand that you don't like the Fed. What system of monetary control do you propose instead?

"When our Federal Government, that has the exclusive power to create money, creates that money and then goes into the open market and borrows it and pays interest for the use of its own money, it occurs to me that that is going too far.

It's a branch of the Rothschild's central banks . It was never meant to print money .. That was in the fine print . Replace ? The gold standard and regulations that put back capital in capitalism . Not just paper with 5 % .. If necessary then break up the banking cartels the same as we did with other monopolies .
