Quote:So will we soon see another recession? If we are lucky. Hopefully the next downturn will not be a full-blown depression. The truth is that the Federal Reserve does not help us avoid booms and busts. Rather, it creates them. The Fed was at the heart of the housing bubble which helped bring on the last financial crisis when it crashed, and the current ultra-low interest rate policies of the Fed are creating more bubbles which will have devastating long-term consequences. So Bernanke does not have anything to be proud of, and his track record has been absolutely nightmarish. Hopefully the American people will not believe the propaganda and will take an honest look at the Federal Reserve. When you take an honest look at the Federal Reserve, there is only one rational conclusion: Congress should shut it down, lock the doors and throw away the key.
