Just Say No to Government Counterfeiting

Federal Reserve Chairwomanperson Janet Yellen spoke at a conference at Jackson Hole, Wyoming this week, doing her usual Sgt. Schultz impressions. But does it really matter what the Fed boss thinks, or what the Fed’s next move is? No, not really. If you are not that familiar with the Federal Reserve and why the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was a bad thing and why this unaccountable agency’s central planning authority should be given the old heave-ho, you can check out this classic by Murray Rothbard, The Case Against the Fed. You can also read Robert Wenzel’s recent book, The Fed Flunks: My Speech at the New York Federal Reserve Bank, as well as a new book by Wenzel’s fellow Economic Policy Journal publisher Chris Rossini, Set Money Free: What Every American Needs To Know About The Federal ReserveAnd of course, there is Ron Paul’s book, titled after what really needs to be done: End the Fed.
