  • Admirable Opposition to the Fed from the Left

    Writes John Nichols in The Nation, President Obama is wrong, really wrong, about the Federal Reserve. Wait, what?  This is a publication which, as Lew Rockwell mentioned when linking to this piece, typically supports Obama.  Nichols’ charge is firm, however, as he argues that “the Obama administration has taken the side of elite and irresponsible …

  • C4L’s John Tate in the Daily Caller: Audit the Fed, Bernanke confirmation can wait

    When Ron Paul reintroduced his bill in February 2009 to audit the Federal Reserve, conventional wisdom predicted that the legislation would once again fail to gain any traction. But conventional wisdom also failed to predict the economic crisis. In less than a year since its introduction, H.R. 1207, which Campaign for Liberty refers to as …

  • Bernanke Calls for an Audit of the Fed

    Whaaaaaaat? It’s true:  Ben Bernanke has called for a GAO audit of the Federal Reserve.  His motives are less exciting, however; the request comes right before he’s scheduled to be confirmed by the Senate and in light of recent accusations of deception by the Fed about its relations with AIG.   Though this is simply political …

  • Ron Paul on the Status of H.R. 1207: It’s Not Over Yet

  • Audit the Fed Bill “Gutted”

    I guess we kind of knew it was coming, but this is still disappointing: Representative Ron Paul, the Texas Republican who has called for an end to the Federal Reserve, said legislation he introduced to audit monetary policy has been “gutted” while moving toward a possible vote in the Democratic-controlled House. The bill, with 308 …

  • The Fed should be more transparent

    Check out this article written by my favorite Doctor, Rep. Ron Paul.  Paul argues for more transparency from the Fed, and gives reasons why HR 1207 is an important piece of legislation. For nearly 100 years the Federal Reserve has operated largely in the shadows. The Fed’s monetary policy operations, including open-market operations and agreements …
