Is the Federal Reserve Really Federal or is it Privately Held?

By Terry | American Decline

Henry Ford on Banking

Every citizen should be asking that question. After all, the Federal Reserve controls:

  • The Cost  (Interest Rate) of Borrowing Money.
  • The Issuance of Currency (not money, there is a difference).
  • The velocity and quantity of money in circulation.

Those three factors have a direct impact upon the costs of our goods and the value of our labor.

If there are too many Federal Reserve notes in circulation, the result is inflation.

Inflation of the currency causes prices to rise because you have too many Federal Reserve Notes chasing too few goods so to speak. We have seen this in the housing and student loan markets for example.

  • When the Fed made currency plentiful and the government correspondingly made loans easy, the prices of homes rose.
  • When the Fed made currency plentiful to the government and the government shifted that money into the educational market the cost of education rose significantly.

Both are the result of easy Fed money or in common language- inflation. So, it is important to know how this Fed thingy works.

Is the Federal Reserve really Federal?

Well, let’s see what they have to say about it from their website:


So what does the above statement demonstrate?

Well, first of all, after our they have paid all of their expenses with the interest paid to them from our taxes, then they provide their stockholders an annual dividend of 6 %.

Stockholders? Does a Federal government entity have stockholders? The short answer is NO!

Stockholders are associated with privately held Corporations, not government entities.

So for them to even claim to be a quasi government entity is actually stretching the truth or a bit disingenuous one may say.

They are a privately held Corporation listed in the white pages of the phone book (not the Blue government pages) along with all of the other privately held Corporations.

Additionally, there is also this little unheralded fact about the Federal Reserve.


They don’t pay any taxes!

Not a bad deal- for them. How would you like to have a business that issues money from nothing and gets all of their expenses and lucrative salaries paid, regardless of economic circumstances, by the public- And doesn’t have to pay any taxes?Rothschild on Money

Sounds almost like a scam doesn’t it?

Don’t look now but, in spite of the nice suits and professional appearance- it is!
