Murray Rothbard, in customary fashion, destroys the myths surrounding the Federal Reserve in The Case Against the Fed.

Murray Rothbard, in customary fashion, destroys the myths surrounding the Federal Reserve in The Case Against the Fed. Though this is only about 150 pages long, Rothbard is able to go into detail about the theories surrounding fractional reserve banking and central banking, the specific history of central banking in America, and his plan to abolish the Fed. I think this is a fantastic short work; I only wish it was longer

Murray Rothbard begins this outstanding book by calling attention to a paradox. The Federal Reserve System enjoys virtual immunity from Congressional investigation.

Murray Rothbard begins this outstanding book by calling attention to a paradox. The few who propose to subject the Fed to even minimal scrutiny, such as Henry Gonzales of Texas, at once find a consensus arrayed against them (Pp. 1 f. They threaten the stability of the market; since, it is alleged, only the Fed's independence blocks the onset of uncontrollable inflation. Here lies the paradox

The most powerful case against the American central bank ever written This book offers plenty of details on why the Fed should be abolished.

The most powerful case against the American central bank ever written. This work begins with a mini-treatment of money and banking theory. This book offers plenty of details on why the Fed should be abolished. There are no restraints left on the Federal Reserve.

by Murray N. Ludwig von Mises Institute, 2007, paperback. p11 "Money," in our economy, is pieces of paper issued by the Federal Reserve, on which are engraved the following: This Note is Legal Tender for all Debts, Private, and Public. Who except the very institution that is solely empowered to create money, that is the Fed. p45 fractional-reserve banker, even if he violates his contract, cannot be treated as an embezzler and a criminal; but the banker must still face the lesser, but still unwelcome fact of insolvency. There are two major ways in which he can become insolvent.

The Case Against the Fed is a 1994 book by Murray N. Rothbard taking a critical look at the United States Federal Reserve, fractional reserve banking, and central banks in general. It details the history of fractional reserve banking and the influence that bankers have had on monetary policy over the last few centuries.

It details the history of reserve banking and the influence that bankers have had on monetary policy over the last few centuries. The claim that the . Federal Reserve is designed to fight inflation is proven false in this book,-in fact, it is price inflation which is caused only by an increase in the money supply, and since only banks increase the money supply, then banks, including the Federal Reserve, are the only source of inflation. First published in 1994, this book is more vital and relevant today than ever. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate

Стр. 40 - There is a fallacy in likening the dealings of a banker to the case of a deposit, to which, in legal effect, they have no sort of resemblance : money paid into a banker's, becomes immediately a part of his general assets; and he is merely a debtor for the amount. Встречается в книгах (18) с 1844 по 1994.

The most powerful case against the American central bank ever written. This work begins with a mini-treatment of money and banking theory, and then plunges right in with the real history of the Federal Reserve System. Rothbard covers the struggle between competing elites and how they converged with the Fed.

Rothbard calls for the abolition of the central bank and a restoration of the gold standard. His popular treatment incorporates the best and most up-to-date scholarship on the Fed's origins and effects.

I have learned a lot from reading this book, and it explained and informed many of my investment decisions (I run a hedge fund) -- in the early 2009 my signals pointed at investing in the (apparently bankrupt) finance sector, which I did, with great success (not, sadly, as great in absolute terms as David Tepper, who made the same play). The fact of the matter was that the Fed had the interests of the big banks at heart, and these would not be allowed to fail, not because they were "too big to fail", but because the Fed (as made apparent by Rothbard) works for them. Interestingly, while there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth over TARP, what has been completely ignored was the real government bank bailout, where the banks borrow money from the government (sorry, the Fed, an, um, independent, yeah, that's it..., entity) at 0% and lend it back to the government (meaning, us taxpayers) at 3.7% interest. This is the "trading income" (trade = "carry trade") which caused Goldman et al to post record profits last year.

I would also like to thank Thomas E Woods Jr (a frequent poster here) for turning me on to Rothbard and the Austrian School through his (highly recommended) book Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In this short but effective book, Rothbard explains in a plain English
what money is, its function, who controls it, and how they do it.
People tend to be well versed in its function, but tend to forget what it
really is and who controls it. And surprisingly, they don't give much or
enough attention on what should be considered the single most important
policy affecting everyday commerce and other policies.

I learned about fractional reserve banking in freshman economics course,
but in a misleading way. This little book explains how it really works
in a much better way. As Ford noted in one of his quotes, if people
really understood exactly how our nation's banking system works, there
would really be a revolution by tomorrow.

What is federal reserve or a central bank, how was it created, and who controls it,
what effect does controlling money supply has on a nation's commerce, economy,
and distribution of wealth and ultimately distribution of power and control?
All of these questions should be asked with serious and sober mindset and
it will become clear that mankind is facing one of the greatest threats in
his history. For every problem concerning environment, health, education,
foreign policy, fiscal policy, and others, you cannot tackle them effectively
without reforming the curent monetary policy or doing away with it completely.

An outstanding piece of work as always from Prof. Rothbard. From an economics major
student who has contemplated about ways for maximizing surpluses of this nation and
the world, I can honestly say that a free society with limited central and authoritative
power and empowers each individual to achieve his maximum potential is the way to go.

If the rating went to ten stars, then I'd rate it a ten because we're talking about knowledge and wisdom essential for Financial Survival by the average American...We the People.

Yep, I wish that I'd have read it and digested it when "Red Beard" (Rothbard) first wrote it. I've read other works he wrote via the Austrian School of Economics (Von Mises.com) and consider him one of the easiest-to-understand authors of that vital and essential school. (I'm still struggling with the THE ROAD TO SERFDOM, by the genius but hard plowing F.A. Hayek...an essential read on the history of different economic "xxxxxisms." and WHY they failed or succeeded. )

I also read END THE FED by Ron Paul. I trust the doctor and ex-senator and potential Republican candidate for the Presendcy...O.K., being ex-military I have difficulty with his naive stance on Foreign policy, but otherwise the doc is as pure as three-month gold (99.9%). His work alone would have convienced me of this need to do away with this "Banker Cartel Headquarters". I've also read other works on the super secret meeting of the Jekyll Island Club on November 22nd, 1913, where six of the most powerful financial representatives of the USA conspired to ensure the congressional passage of a central bank of the US bill (The Aldridge Bill then later The Federal Reserve Bill after the Democrats gained control of the House in 1910 and later the Democratic VP presided over the Senate when Woodrow Wilson took office in 1913...the year we got the FED (Two days before Christmas Eve, back before commercial aviation and Congress still in session! But NONE of the other treatments are as concise and so well developed and supported by pertinent and comprehensive facts. You come away with an excellent grasp of just who each of the six men at Jekyll Island were representing in the top financial echelon (J.P. Morgan of Rockerfella or the European financial powerhouse headed by Rothschild.) and how they ensured that their shares invested in same would be permanent and non-transferable. Even today our AGO cannot go in the FED to see just who has how many shares of the FED and what might be their dividend payments based on what criteria?

Finally, for an e-book costing less than half the price of a meal at any fast-food joint, what's not to like about this
book or any other cheap-but- great Amazon e-book?
