Editor’s Note: The U.S. Federal Reserve was created in 1913 to provide a safer and more stable monetary and financial system. These days it follows a more sinister mandate, which Shah explored back in 2014. Here’s what he found…
It’s maddening. The divide between haves and have-nots is widening every day. There are fewer and fewer good jobs and careers to be had.
And maybe worst of all, according to a survey by the nonprofit Employee Benefit Research Institute and Greenwald & Associates, about 36% of workers have less than $1,000 in savings and investments that could be used for retirement (not counting their primary residence or defined benefit plans and traditional pensions), and 60% of workers have less than $25,000.

The U.S. Federal Reserve System is killing America. It has destroyed the economy. It has undermined savers and retirees. It is even responsible for the corruption in Congress.
We have to kill the Federal Reserve before it kills America for good.
There’s nothing in the Constitution about a central bank. There’s nothing “free market” about a central bank. There’s no reason for a central bank – with omnipotent power over the creation of money and credit, over employment (which is an absolute joke), over the entire economy, and over Congress – to exist. No reason.

And they should shut down. Sure, there would be losses. Equity owners would lose, creditors would lose, and some depositors would lose money, too, if they aren’t covered by FDIC insurance.
