Why is the Federal Reserve being kept quiet during the election season?
The Federal Reserve has been robbing us all for over a century. Yet, not one U.S. President has openly talked about it since JFK…
From The Fiscal Times
“In an election fueled by populist anger and dominated by talk of economic insecurity, why aren’t any of the presidential candidates talking about the Federal Reserve?”
“After nearly a decade of high unemployment, severe racial and gender disparities and wage stagnation, voters are heading to the ballot box in pursuit of a fairer economy with less rampant inequality. In California and New York, low-wage workers are celebrating historic agreements to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. And the economy and jobs consistently rank among the top concerns expressed by voters of all political stripes.”
“One government institution reigns supreme in its ability to influence wages, jobs and overall economic growth, yet leading candidates for president have barely discussed it at all. The Federal Reserve is the most important economic policy making institution in the country, and it is critical that voters hear how candidates plan to reform and interact with the Fed.”
