Federal Reserve

  1. Does anybody realise that the Fed has doubled the money supply over 20 years? Can someone explain how the Fed making dollars is any different from my neighbor printing billions of dollars in his basement? Does anybody else think that all these problems with price inflation, real estate bubbles, income disparities have anything to do with this phenomenon?

    That's why they voted to discontinue reporting M3. So that it's harder for us to figure out the aggregate money supply and they are not so easily held accountable.
