48 Laws of Power
Power and Independence of the Federal Reserve E-bokThe independence of the Federal Reserve is considered a cornerstone of its identity, crucial for keeping monetary policy decisions free of electoral politics. But do we really understand what is meant by "e;Federal Reserve independence"e;? Using scores of examples from the Fed's rich history, The Power and Independence of the Federal Reserve shows that much common wisdom about the nation's central bank is inaccurate. Legal scholar and financial historian Peter Conti-Brown provides an in-depth look at the Fed's place in government, its internal governance structure, and its relationships to such individuals and groups as the president, Congress, economists, and bankers.Exploring how the Fed regulates the global economy and handles its own internal politics, and how the law doesand does notdefine the Fed's power, Conti-Brown captures and clarifies the central bank's defining complexities. He examines the foundations of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which established a system of central banks, and the ways that subsequent generations have redefined the organization. Challenging the notion that the Fed Chair controls the organization as an all-powerful technocrat, he explains how institutions and individualswithin and outside of governmentshape Fed policy. Conti-Brown demonstrates that the evolving mission of the Fedincluding systemic risk regulation, wider bank supervision, and as a guardian against inflation and deflationrequires a reevaluation of the very way the nation's central bank is structured.Investigating how the Fed influences and is influenced by ideologies, personalities, law, and history, The Power and Independence of the Federal Reserve offers a clear picture of this uniquely important institution.
