Federal Reserve System is a flagrant case of the US government conferring a
special privilege upon bankers. The US government hands to the banks its
credit, at virtually no cost to the banks, to be loaned out by the bankers for
their own private profit. Our present money system is a
debt money system.
Before a dollar can circulate, a debt must be forged. Such a system assumes
that you can borrow yourself out of debt." - Willis A. Overholser

A comparative print of the Federal

The Senate struck out, "To
suspend the officials of Federal Reserve banks for cause, stated in writing
with opportunity of
hearing, require the removal of said official for incompetency, dereliction
of duty, fraud or deceit, such removal to be subject to approval by the
President of the United States."
Changed by the Senate to read "To suspend or remove any officer or director of
any Federal Reserve bank, the cause of such removal to be forthwith
communicated in writing by the Federal
Reserve Board to the removed officer or director and to said bank."

part from regulatory action: the Federal Reserve eliminated reserve

important source of the decline in required reserves has been the growth of
sweep accounts. In the most common form of sweeping, funds in bank customers'
retail checking accounts are shifted overnight into savings accounts exempt
from reserve requirements and then returned to customers' checking accounts the
next business day. Largely as a result of this practice, today only 30% of
