In the post-meltdown world, it is irresponsible, ineffective, and ultimately useless to have a serious economic debate without considering and challenging the role of the Federal Reserve.

Most people think of the Fed as an indispensable institution without which the country’s economy could not properly function. But in End the Fed, Ron Paul draws on American history, economics, and fascinating stories from his own long political life to argue that the Fed is both corrupt and unconstitutional. It is inflating currency today at nearly a Weimar or Zimbabwe level, a practice that threatens to put us into an inflationary depression where hundred-dollar bills are worthless. What most people don’t realize is that the Fed—created by the Morgans and Rockefellers at a private club off the coast of Georgia—is actually working against their own personal interests. Congressman Paul’s urgent appeal to all citizens and officials tells us where we went wrong and what we need to do fix America’s economic policy for future generations.

    " A great policy issue read. This book attacks fiat money and the US Fed system. It makes a constitutional, economic, and moral arguments. This book is very good and should be read by anyone that wants to understand the role of one half of every transaction. This book although great is very one sided and should be read with the same caution that any book that takes a one sided look at the world. "

    " A very well-researched critique on the Federal Reserve. Congressman Ron Paul offers an intriguing and shocking analysis of the corrupt motives and history of the Federal Reserve. This is what an American politician should concentrate on with the American people. A very good read! "

    " Paul makes some good points and casts a lot of light on aspects of the Fed and monetary system, but it's impact is weakened by not delivering a concise, structured argument that builds support for its conclusions. "

    " This book is full of propaganda, but entertaining. I didn't learn a great deal about economics that I did not already know, as there weren't a whole lot of specifics. I enjoyed it. "

    " Good book Ron.


    Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. "

    " Hmm, sometimes I wonder if I am undercritical of Ron Paul, but I appreciate his ideological sincerity. The book reads as a rally the troops against centralized power and economic planning. While I don't really understand most tea-party types, Paul has my support. "
