    In fairness to Bernanke, he probably has done everything he can do for the economy. If you’re looking for the people who really are just sitting on their hands, their on Capitol Hill.

    In fact many people wonder if Bernanke has gone past the strictly legal with all the stops he’s pulled out… With all that it does seem to have provided the floor, as Clinton said, but hasn’t really built the house.

    Despite its name, the Fed is a private consortium of commercial banks doing what benefits commercial banks. Get rid of it and return its power to the Treasury Department like the Founders said to do it.

    The FED is not a private board, they nominated by the President and approved by Congress.

    Jeddidyah: They are nominated by the Federal Reserve and rubberstamped by the Senate.

    uhhh point of order. Here is a quote from an article about the federal reserve"

    As stipulated by the Banking Act of 1935, the President appoints the seven members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; they must then be confirmed by the Senate and serve for 14 years.2 Once appointed, Governors may not be removed from office for their policy opinions. The chairman and vice-chairman are chosen by the President from among the sitting Governors for four-year terms; these appointments are also subject to Senate confirmation.3 By law, the chairman reports twice a year to Congress on the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy objectives. He also testifies before Congress on numerous other issues and meets periodically with the Secretary of the Treasury."

    So looks like ‘ole Jed’s a millionaire.
