Ron Paul on C-SPAN’s Newsmakers

When the 112th Congress convenes next month, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) will become the chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and will have Congressional oversight of the Federal Reserve.

On C‑SPAN’s Newsmakers, he shares his concerns regarding the agency’s monetary policies. In the past, the representative has been very vocal in his criticism of the way the Fed is handled and has gone so far as to propose that it be eliminated in his latest book, “End the Fed.”

Rep. Paul also explain his agenda concerning financial issues and how they harmonize with the incoming Republican-majority’s overall agenda, as well as efforts to stimulate the sagging U.S. economy.

    Did one of the interviewers say “anarchy” at the end of the interview or was I hearing things?

  • PaulRon2008

    These two wannabe pundits are very naive. Like most politicians you wonder if they ever really had a real job with real obligations to meet. Their comments questions and comments betray their ignorance and lack of understanding about America.
    At 4:12 do you have a problem with the bailout…. HA ha ha… in the END, THE FED WILL SELF DESTRUCT. The Bond market and unfunded liabilities will get married and go to hell and take their children with all the dollars with them.

    According to The Money Makers documentary, there were two periods in US history when fiat currency was issued by states itself without interest. Both projects worked very well during the time.
    The documentary is available online.

    25:15 “Ron Paul’s vision of the Fed doesn’t represent the view of most Republicans”

    Yeah, no shit Sherlock.

    That’s because both parties are the same statists, and Paul is concerned about civil liberties.

    Ron Paul is crazy. The FED saved us – we dodged the bullet. He doesn’t understand economics.

    Sheesh!…The soon to be chairman leaves the conversation and the next words out of their mouths is that we the people don’t agree with any of Dr. Pauls facts and opinions…I’d like to decide that Thank You very much. I say I haven’t heard more clear and conscientious thoughts rendered from another human being, than from this veteran of clarity. 20-RP-12

    Can’t wait until Dr. Paul starts pawning those bankers … Cry havoc! And let loose Dr. Paul! 😉

  • I fear that Dr. Paul, when answering questions about regulation of the banking system, responds that the free-market can regulate better, but that assumes you’re on a gold standard and in a true free market. We have neither. I read an article some time ago about banking regulation. It argued that in the absence of a Gold Standard, the Glass-Steagle Act, or something like it is probably required to provide the artificial control mechanism that the Gold Standard would provide automatically.

      Exactly, a gold standard creates a level playing field for everyone, no matter how large or how small you are.

    imagine trying to measure the wood for your house when the inch itself keeps changing every day. the currency (esp. the dollar) is the measuring stick and it cannot be a yo-yo. that’s what Ron is saying I think.
