The Federal Reserve: America’s Fourth Branch of Government

Federal Reserve The Federal Reserve is America's Fourth Branch of government and Ben Bernanke is, in effect, the economic czar of the country. The Fourth Branch? The Fed and the Fed alone has the power to determine how much money should be in the economy. Such vast power over our lives makes the Fed a de facto fourth branch of government. Yet, its powers are not defined by the Constitution, and neither the chairman nor senior officials are elected by the people.

Emerging Market Mania: China Tells Bernanke to Take a Hike

China China has made it clear that it is NOT pleased with the US’s current monetary policy (China has blamed the Fed for its inflation woes with some officials going so far as to label the Dollar’s status as a reserve currency, “absurd”). The US has in turn responded by labeling China a currency manipulator and blaming it for the US’s economic woes. Indeed, it seems almost every other week that some US Government official comes out with a “it’s ALL China’s fault” statement. However, when push comes to shove, it is China that holds the trump cards in the form of interest rates.
