Eliminate the federal reserve?

  Tags: politics   finance   federal reserve


Should we eliminate the federal reserve from government?

Arguments For

Yes, the Fed should be eliminated

The Fed is a for-profit company

The Commerce Depart report shows the Fed earned money at a $46 billion annual rate in the second quarter.[1] This company should not be granted such exclusive privileges into government monetary policy.

Arguments Against

No, the Fed should remain

The federal reserve protects against inflation and other monetary issues.

The FED works in secrecy. It's a cabal. A cartel. It's illegal in terms of the constitution. It's a ponzi scheme. Eliminate it. - jennyhooah (twitter) 0
