Origins of the Federal Reserve Banking System-Part 2 / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Continued From Part 1

Charles A. Conant: Surplus Capital and Economic Imperialism

The years shortly before and after 1900 proved to be the beginnings of the drive toward the establishment of a Federal Reserve System. It was also the origin of the gold-exchange standard, the fateful system imposed upon the world by the British in the 1920s and by the United States after World War II at Bretton Woods. Even more than the case of a gold standard with a central bank, the gold-exchange standard establishes a system, in the name of gold, which in reality manages to install coordinated, international, inflationary, paper money.

Origins of the Federal Reserve Banking System / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Murray_N_Rothbard

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Progressive Movement

The Federal Reserve Act of December 23, 1913, was part and parcel of the wave of Progressive legislation on local, state, and federal levels of government that began about 1900. Progressivism was a bipartisan movement that, in the course of the first two decades of the 20th century, transformed the American economy and society from one of roughly laissez-faire to one of centralized statism.

Central Banksterism / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have presented the basics of monetary theory, as developed by Austrian School economists. A distinct Austrian School theory of money goes back to Ludwig von Mises' book, The Theory of Money and Credit (1912). Mises amplified this theory over the years until its culmination in Human Action (1949). His disciple, Murray Rothbard, extended Mises' analysis in a series of books, most notably chapter 11 of Man, Economy, and State (1962), America's Great Depression (1963), What Has Government Done to Our Money? (1964), and The Mystery of Banking (1983).

Audit the Fed, Anything Less Than Full Disclosure is Unacceptable / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week a new bill was introduced in the Senate to audit the Federal Reserve. Some backers of my bill HR1207 and the existing Senate companion bill S.604 were a little miffed at this, but depending on how you think about it, this new legislation poses no great threat to our efforts.

Greenspan a Decade Behind the Curve / Economics / Central Banks

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFormer Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is the worst Fed boss in history, but boy-oh-boy how we loved to watch him smile. We were so attracted to Mr. Greenspan’s girlish grin, in fact, that he could say just about anything and people would eat it up: “I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said”. How delightfully playful!  He really must be the world’s best central banker!

By: Rob_Kirby

Impeccably reliable sources have informed me that as recently as Sept. 30, 2009 – the last possible day of trade in the Sept. 09 gold futures – a number of well-heeled market participants “bought” substantial tonnage worth of gold futures on the London Bullion Market [LBMA] and immediately told their counterparties they wanted to take instantaneous delivery of the underlying physical bullion.

Fractional Reserve Banking Made Easy / Economics / Central Banks

By: Terence_Gillespie

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe paper bills in our wallet are not money. And they are not Notes as in "Federal Reserve Note" written on the top of the bill. They are actually just Tokens. Federal Reserve Tokens, if you like, is what should be written on top of the bills. They are not redeemable for anything other than themselves. And they represent only one thing: Your belief in their value. Hopefully, your belief extends to the next person you try to give them to.

Ron Paul's Battle for Financial Sanity / Politics / Central Banks

By: David_Gordon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRon Paul has since the inception of his tenure in Congress waged a heroic battle for financial sanity, and in End the Fed he gives us insights from that struggle available nowhere else. Dr. Paul had from an early age an affinity for the free market. "In the 1960s," he tells us, "I discovered the writings of economists such as Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, Murray N. Rothbard, and Hans F. Sennholz. I gradually found the answers I had been searching for. Even for the experts, it literally took centuries to fully understand the nature of money and the business cycle." (p.43)

Can a Central Bank Go Broke? / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: David_Howden

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCentralized monetary authorities enjoy a privileged position in the current monetary system. People tend to view the economists and politicians at these institutions as demigods, individuals who if given enough resources will ensure that the economy continues an ever-advancing and smooth trajectory. However, unlike the Greek demigods of yore, today's central bankers are mere mortals who must work within the confines and constraints of the institution that they head.

Bernanke’s Victory Lap / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite vocal criticism of the Federal Reserve’s stewardship of the economy over the past decade, President Obama’s renomination of Ben Bernanke to a second term as Fed Chairman nevertheless served to reassure and boost financial markets. While it is true that markets tend to crave predictability from government, rewarding the continuation of horrible Bush-era policies is perhaps pushing the boundaries of nostalgia. More interestingly, President Obama, who campaigned for ‘change,’ has clearly come down once again on the side of continuity.

The Buzz over Bernanke Reappointment as Fed Chairman / Politics / Central Banks

By: Michael_Pento

Last week’s buzz in Jackson Hole Wyoming and around Wall Street is whether or not Banana Ben Bernanke should be reappointed to the Fed Chair. CNBC also held a panel discussing this issue with Bob McTeer (former President of the Dallas Fed). The consensus was that it was ridiculous not to have Barack Obama indicate he would serve another term as soon as possible. The agreed upon reason being that no one could do a better job than he has done.

Why the Federal Reserve Bank Must Die / Politics / Central Banks

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value ---- zero.” – Voltaire

“The Federal Reserve in collaboration with the giant banks has created the greatest financial crisis the world has ever seen. The foolish notion that unlimited amounts of money and credit created out of thin air can provide sustainable economic growth has delivered this crisis to us. Instead of economic growth and stable prices, (The Fed) has given us a system of government and finance that now threatens the world financial and political institutions. Pursuing the same policy of excessive spending, debt expansion and monetary inflation can only compound the problems that prevent the required corrections. Doubling the money supply didn’t work, quadrupling it won’t work either.  Buying up the bad debt of privileged institutions and dumping worthless assets on the American people is morally wrong and economically futile. Representative from Texas Ron Paul questioning Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke
