Will the Federal Reserve Cause the Next Riots?

•, By Ron Paul

Unfortunately for Powell, Daly, and other Fed promoters, a cursory look at the Fed's operations shows that the central bank is the leading cause of economic inequality. The Federal Reserve manipulates the money supply by buying and selling government securities. This means that when the Fed decides to pump money into the economy, it does so by putting it in the pockets of wealthy, and oftentimes politically-connected, investors who are able to spend the new money before the Fed's actions result in widespread inflation. Wealthy individuals also tend to be among the first to invest in the bubbles that form when the Fed distorts interest rates, which are the price of money. These investors may lose some money when the bubble bursts, but these losses are usually outweighed by their gains, so they end up profiting from the Fed-created boom-bubble-bust cycle.
