Like the government itself, a central bank requires autonomy from the government while exercising influences on each other. The complementary effect leads to a successful national economy. In analyzing the history and development of the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, an...

  • Banks Belonging To The Federal Reserve
    2,478 words
    Not banks but merchants were the sources of money and credit in the colonial period of American history (1607-1783). It was only after independence that the first commercial bank received a charter of incorporation - the Bank of North America, in 1781. British merchant banking houses stood at one end of a long chain of credit that stretched to the American frontier. They gave short-term (less than a year) credits to American merchants who then extended them to wholesalers of their imports, and t...

  • Large Regulated Bank Like The Federal Reserve
    1,230 words
    To guard against this possibility, bankers prior to the establishment of the Federal Reserve would establish lines of credit with larger banks. In the event of a run, the smaller bank would draw on the line of credit. The larger banks, or central banks, to keep shady small-time operators out of business, evaluated the line of credit. Nobody would invest serious money to a small bank not protected against a run by a larger partner. However, the system was not perfect. In times of panic, large num...
  • Economy Back To The Standards
    423 words
    My fellow Americans we are in a time of economic turmoil and lost dreams. The past administration failed to see the consequences of not taking federal action. This administration plans to bring back economic stability and hope for present and future generations. Our former commander-in-chief, Herbert Hoover, reacted poorly to the stock market crash of 1929. He misjudged the intensity of the collapse, calling it "a needed adjustment" and stated that by his standards, the American economy was fund...

    The Federal Reserve: A Knight in Shining Armor 'To suffer either the solicitation of merchants or the wishes of government, to determine the measure of the bank issues, is unquestionably to adopt a very false principle of conduct.

  • Central Bank Monetary Policy
    7,555 words
    If "taxation without representation" could rally the colonists against the British Crown in 1776, tight money and ruinous interest rates might be cause for populist revolt in our own day. Federal Reserve monetary policy also has onerous social burdens, measured by huge changes in aggregate output, income, and employment. The imperious Fed, much like the English Crown two centuries ago, formulates and carries out its policy directives without democratic input, accountability, or redress. Not only...

  • Validity Of The Criticism Against Jackson
    966 words

In the case of the recharter of the bank, the statement is not valid. He did uphold the principles of the majority rule and not of the supremacy of the government. The bank ...
  • Consolidation Of Federal Bank Regulation
    1,278 words
    "More than 70% of commercial bank assets are held by organizations that are supervised by at least two federal agencies; almost half attract the attention of three or four. Banks devote on average about 14% of their non-interest expense to complying with rules" (Anonymous 88). A fool can see that government waste has struck again. This tangled mess of regulation, among other things, increases costs and diffuses accountability for policy actions gone awry. The most effective remedy to correct thi...
