Ron Paul Is The Man

27 April 2011 7 Comments

Here’s Ron Paul’s response to Bernanke’s press conference earlier today:

“Chairman Bernanke’s press conference today was unprecedented, and it demonstrates that Federal Reserve officials are very concerned about growing public criticism of Fed policies.  Although Mr. Bernanke predictably provided no substantive information, the American people want real answers about Fed bailouts, lending to foreign banks, and most of all inflation.  Mr. Bernanke continues to ignore his culpability for the inflation all Americans suffer due to the Fed’s relentless monetary expansion.  Rising prices are the direct result of Fed devaluation of our dollar.  Yet rather than addressing the Fed’s loose dollar policy, Mr. Bernanke continues to assure us that inflation is not a problem.

Without the Federal Reserve’s relentless expansion of credit throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, there could have been no excessive borrowing or explosion of subprime lending.  Through easy credit, the Fed initiated the economic boom that created the dot-com bubble.  When that bubble burst the Fed pumped additional liquidity into the system, which led to a new boom that created the housing bubble.  Commodity prices have risen rapidly, producer prices have followed suit and consumers are already seeing the beginning of massive price increases passed on to them.  And now the Fed’s additional trillions of dollars in monetary pumping is creating yet another bubble.  This is the exact opposite of stability in the marketplace and has nothing to do with free markets. It is central economic planning at its worst. And the end result may be hyperinflation and the destruction of our currency.

Now Americans are waking up to the dangers of the Fed’s inflationary monetary policy, and they want it to stop.  Today’s staged press conference will not be enough to stop the growing demand for real Fed transparency, and I hope to build on that grassroots demand by passing legislation that will result in a true audit of the Fed’s activities.

    This is exactly what I was already doing. But when I came across the realization that it isn't set correctly on boot I thought I would ask about a different way.

    To create a business that we have become larger, of course we need the funds can be obtained through bank loans. Therefore, I think there is nothing wrong if we think about these alternatives, but we must be ready with all the risks.
