Fed Power

How Finance Wins

Lawrence Jacobs and Desmond King

  • Hard-hitting critique of the Fed's outsized role in American politics and life
  • Shows how the Fed brazenly benefited the one percent at the expense of Main Street businesses and families during the 2008 financial crisis--and with very little criticism from elites in government and the media
  • Outlines the major reforms that the Fed needs if it is to establish a reputation for being impartial and accountable
  • Compares the Fed to central banks in other countries to show just how biased towards big finance it really is
