Federal Reserve Aid to the Eurozone: Its Impact on the U.S. and the Dollar

592 Responses



Congressman Ron Paul, Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee, announced today that the subcommittee will hold a hearing to examine the Federal Reserve’s assistance to the Eurozone and the impact of that assistance on the U.S. monetary system and the dollar.

“The Federal Reserve has been creating money out of thin air for forty years now,” Chairman Paul stated, “and they’ve ramped up the printing presses during these five years of crisis—all in the name of economic stability. But there are consequences to massive amounts of money creation, consequences when central banks print money, consequences when they loan it, and consequences when banks get this money and create even more money and credit through fractional reserve banking. Indeed, these Fed actions helped cause the very crisis we’re suffering from today.”

Congressman Paul continued, “It is important for Congress to acknowledge this and to hold the Fed accountable for its actions, since they affect the value of the dollars in our wallets. This isn’t just about the Fed trying to bailout Europe; there is a fundamental question here about what fiat money does to the economy. I am pleased that President Dudley, a permanent voting member on the FOMC, will be appearing before the subcommittee so we can ask some important questions about the Fed’s involvement in Europe and what that means for the dollar and our fiat monetary regime.”

The hearing, entitled “Federal Reserve Aid to the Eurozone: Its Impact on the U.S. and the Dollar,” will be held on Tuesday, March 27, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 2128 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Witnesses scheduled to testify:

  • William Dudley, President & CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of New York
  • Steven B. Kamin, Director, Division of International Finance, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

    HAHAHA
    Go to Ron's video upload and call Ron racist, when you know countless Paul supporters are going to see it...
    Who are you fooling?
    Do you think your meaningless accusation will have any effect other than to make people angry because we share a planet with the likes of your socially defunct ideas?
    Why are YOU RACIST? That is what I want to know...

    The biblical view vs evolution theory view is also a factor. While birds of a feather flock together, and free association of peoples may be a reason for the shades of skin color or the cultures of peoples, all nations of men have a common origin, and one blood, according to the biblical worldview. Evolution which Hitler believed, has a theory of different origins, less evolved subhuman species, and so he thought it was OK to kill them. Sometimes I wonder if that is why racist elites kill.

    I find it funny when people bring that up. If he is racist or not, which I doubt, is utterly irrelevant. Racism sucks, it's horrible, but what we are dealing with here is FAR more important than our petty fucking feelings being hurt. He could be racist against everyone besides white males for all I care, I would still vote for him because he's the only who will save the entire country from collapse.

    There are 4 major channels here that discuss the Presidential campaigns, but they will not give Ron Paul the press time he deserves. Even if he wasn't running he is drawing bigger crowds for his speeches than the others. Isn't newsworthy, but if Justin Beiber farts, we got to hear about it.

    Just to help you look more intelligent (therefore adding more weight to your statements), make sure you spell "Goldman Sachs" right :-). And yes, the big money men in this country have been running things for a few decades now, and it looks as if their control is not going to waiver any time soon. They're so powerful that they've been able to demonize a man as genuine and honest as Dr. Paul....which is no small feat. They're now putting their money on Romney, and he's going to be the nominee.

    Racism is also a tenet of evolutionary theory, which Hitler used to advance his genocidal acts. Biblical thoughts on the origin of humankind in the book of Acts for instance the Apostle said "all nations of men come from one blood" Adam - so the Dr doesnt believe in the whole theory of race and eugenics which is even now being used by US administration and UN sponsored for their forced depopulation through vaccines.

    He's not racist because libertarians don't see people in groups but as individuals therefore he can't be racist.
    He's not racist he's just immune to idiots

    Racism stems from collectivism. Paul is an individualist which is the complete opposite of collectivism. Learn what collectivism and individualism is and then listen to Paul speak and you will be able to confirn he is not a collectivist.

    True that, too bad he wont accept evolution though. A bit stupid in my opninon, but he is still a million times better than the rest and correct on all the major issues such as the economy, freedom, foreign policy etc. As a doctor I would expect him to be a bit better on that subject. If I lived in the states he would still get my vote.

    He finally got to the top, and is now done..He's worked almost his whole life trying to fix these issues with the FED and the Gold standard. Hope to god he makes it either as the nominee or on the independent ticket.

    Those people are misinformed, and don't do any type of research for themselves. The man is humble and full of honest Integrity. The people who claim racist just feel into the mainstream media propaganda.. Crazy they still run with the racist card when the subject have been completely dropped.. idiots for sure!

    In the past, people like Mr. Dudley were hung from the neck for being part of
    this scam called central fraction reserve banking. It's a criminal concept.

    I would Love to buy a home, but the government intervenes in the market and makes them too expensive.
    If they allowed the rule of law to take effect, house prices would drop to half of what they are now. Perhaps wages would too, but I have saved for a long time and could buy one, but they're just too inflated.....again.

    if u let a bank fail it is benefiting whole the of society. if a bank has 1billion in deposits and has lent out 10billion, if the bank dissolves then you sell the 10bill of mortgages for say 5billion and give 1 bill to make the depositors whole and you make 4billion profit which you can use to seed a new bank.

    Ron Paul 2012 President --- the only Real American!!!

    There are two reasons Romney is "winning":

    1) Mitt's huge bankroll is a tremendous edge, able to buy, buy and buy Votes!

    2) The GOP has chosen to do whatever it takes to assure Mitt's nomination (legally, unethically, and even down right fraudulently)!

    See the shameful GOP's actions in Maine:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBx__69pkpY

    Also, this video — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDChEDnISOw — shows a blatant outrage of another GOP delegate fraud!

    If you love America --- VOTE for Ron Paul . If you don't --- go to China!
