are you denying that those banks were the foundations of the federal reserve? i understand that the structures have changed with the derivative debt and rothschild family selling their interest but there is still some european involvement in the fed and goldman sachs is wall street. wall street and the banks are interconnected, and the bailout did nothing for the average american. i predict the next bailout will be for GMAC in the form of getting banking status so they can tap into the money as well.

I suppose fur trappers and bead traders had an early stake in the NYC banking system too, but somehow I doubt you'll a stack of beaver pelts in the vaults of J.P. Morgan Chase...

If you look over the balance sheet info that the Fed publishes every month it gives a fair and complete view of where its assets and liabilites are held -- if you don't believe that kind of stuff you pretty much have to be the kind of person that lives on compound with stock pile of pemican and ammo.

I can understand being critical of specific actions of the Fed but it is not helpful to condemn the whole entreprise as moving solely for the benefit of weatlthy, secretive forces. I used to have the ability to get to about 3 out of 4 of the quarterly meetings that various civic /executive groups would sponsor in Chicago of the various private and public / quasi-public economists who do shape banking and investment policy. With few exceptions these men and women give a great deal of concern to the actions of banks / corporations upon the everyday life of vast swaths of ordinary citizens. They are also struggling to balance complete openness with the possibility that unusual actions will lead to market over reaction. It is a hard tightrope to stay on!

Nothing quite so useless as 14 year old data when been through about two decades of massive bank consolidation...

That Ross guy looks a lot like the cult leader that cut off his man parts and got his followers to commit suiced when their space ship did not show up. Some how that does not suprise me...
