Unfortunately, most investors do not understand how or why the government involves itself in the economy. In the U.S., the answer lies in the role of the Federal Reserve, or simply, the Fed. The Fed is the gatekeeper of the U.S. economy. It is the bank of the U.S. government and, as such, it regulates the nation's financial institutions. The Fed watches over the world's largest economy and is, therefore, one of the most powerful organizations on earth.

Most Americans willingly pay their taxes and in fact often vote to increase them if they're convinced that they're being treated fairly, and if they're getting full value, if they have confidence in the system.
The Evolution Of Banking With the exception of the extremely wealthy, very few people buy their homes in all-cash transactions.

Who Owns the Fed? Free Enterprise Zone, The Freeman, Warren C. Gibson Have you heard? The Federal Reserve System raked in profits of $79.3 billion last year, almost triple what runner-up ExxonMobil made.

This means a gigantic windfall for the big banks because, although they don’t like to admit it, they actually own the Fed. US federal deficit: how much does China own of America's debt? America's federal deficit up and China owns lots of it The US Federal Deficit is always in the news - and when Chinese premier Hu Jintao arrives to a lavish reception at the White House, he comes as bigger lender to the developing world than the World Bank.
