It's so nice to see Dr. Paul

It's so nice to see Dr. Paul shown some respect.

It's so nice not to have weirdos bobbing around behind him

Distracting people from what he's saying.

And they seem to have gotten the audio fixed too, or at least kicked out whomever was sabotaging it before Ron Paul's hearings.

I wonder how closely academic economists

and policymakers follow the hearings. Are they having the educational impact Dr. Paul hoped when he took over the chairman's role.

Mr. Ely seems to be of a different philosophy than Austrian, but he is arguing why the Fed should be re-absorbed into the Treasury Department.

Well, why I say that is, he claimed that the only power the Fed has is to change the interest rate, which does affect things such as money-supply and inflation. But don't they do a lot more than that such as directly lending/giving out large amounts of credit to other institutions? And is this referred to as open market operations perhaps, he did mention that as the other activity of the Fed?

Should members be restricted on where they do business?

By law the Federal Reserve System can loan to members. It's my opinion that all those loans went to members.

Why can't Congress demand the the Treasury release the list of current members and their amount in Reserves and the kind -FRN, Treasuries or Gold etc?
