I agree that yesterday was a really bad sign

The market had already priced in a taper because everyone was expecting it. The fed could have done a token reduction in their purchases with minimal impact. It would have been a minor step towards turning things around. The fact that the fed did zero reduction is an awful sign. It looks like now there will be no exit for the fed before there is a crisis to force an exit on them.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

My favorite part of the interview; almost brought a tear to my eye. We will shift the balance, yet.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Ron seemed very happy.

With his gold and silver mining stocks going up. I was too. Sold some stocks on the rally. Will take my fiat money and purchase some real assets and save some of it to purchase more mining stocks on the next drop in metals. The Magambo Guru says. This stuff is easy.

The shadow banks, although free of government regulation, are propped up by a hidden government guarantee in the form of safe harbor status under the 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Act pushed through by Wall Street. The result is to create perverse incentives for the financial system to self-destruct.

Why you ask?

Well, here's what they might have in mind:

if this tedious pain in the butt of a Bernankster is crazy enough to be serious about it, that means we have to invent (again!) new ways to rig those damn unemployment statistics below 6.5% by December!

(Fed has said for some time they won't consider tapering until unemployment falls below 6.5% anyway)

I guess the BLS dudes are fine on that one, though.

Likely the Fed hasn't had any intention to taper anyway, and for a good while now.

After doing an internet search on the

renewal of the federal reserve, I found different opinions as to whether it renews or not, I am confused. There were some not so nice comments about Ron Paul people continuing the myth. According to the federal reserve's own website: Is the Federal Reserve Act going to expire?

No. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913--which established the Federal Reserve as the central bank of the United States--has been amended or altered by the Congress numerous times over the years, but the act has never included an "expiration date" or repeal date. As stated in the law itself, the Federal Reserve Act can only be repealed, amended, or altered by the Congress.

Does anyone know the truth?

Strange... Information

Strange... Information appears to have been changed over the coarse of the last year or so....

The original bill called for a vote in 1933 to keep the charter going... I have understood it was extended to a hundred year charter in the 1920's. Strange maybe it is just me but, it appears history has been changed.

Thank you! Delightful to see the Doc, as always! He's looking

better than ever and I loved his story about the 14 year-old boy wanting to talk to him about the Fed. You can tell that makes it all worthwhile for him!

Debbie

Too bad you didn't promote him...

.... When you had the chance!

Do what you do Ron,

thanks for your inspiration.

kind people rock

Why no mention that the

Why no mention that the hundred year charter expires this year? I guess it is just excepted it will be voted back in? No fight? This is a year the FED could really be ended. It has to be voted on at some point. 1913 one hundred year charter ends this year.

Also, it should be mentioned what would have happened if...

he had 'tapered' - the 'market' would have plunged 2-300 points, gold would have dipped but later recovered 60-80%, but most devastatingly the slowdown caused by the 'tapering event' would expose the underlying weakness of the system, which would destroy any remaining confidence, causing a mass flight of dollars through borders making a Perotian sound...

It is what it is and it ain't what it ain't. Also there's pandas.

Make Law to Forbid Federal Reserve Asset Redemption

The Fed can stuff itself with all the toxic waste financial assets it wants. The stock holders of the Federal Reserve Corporation will be worth zero. When the economic collapse happens, we should make sure the owners of the Fed are the last people to be paid.
