Published on Mar 2, 2012 by CongressmanRonPaul​

Prof. Selgin provides a short but comprehensive explanation of the institutional drawbacks of the United States banking system during the 19th century and how this fueled desire for financial reform. Unfortunately, as Prof. Selgin goes on to describe, the solution of allowing a free market in banking was rejected and instead another layer of government regulation was placed on the banking sector in the form of the Federal Reserve System.​

"What is the Fed's Future?" with Roger Garrison -- Ron Paul Fed Lecture Series, Pt 3/3 (59:50)

Published on Aug 15, 2012 by CongressmanRonPaul​
Rep. Ron Paul sponsored this Congressional lecture on "What Is the Fed's Future?", the final lecture in a three part series on the Federal Reserve System for Congressional staff. As a continuing educational tool this lecture was filmed and is provided to the public. The lecture was delivered by Dr. Roger Garrison, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Auburn University.​
Dr. Garrison's lecture describes how the economic precepts on which the Fed operates are fundamentally flawed, making it only a matter of time before the Fed is the creator of its own demise. By contrasting the Keynesian macroeconomic theory upon which the Fed is based with the Austrian macroeconomic theory, what Garrison calls the capital-based framework, Dr. Garrison illustrates the market-distorting effects of the Fed's actions on the structure of production. Using this comparison, Professor Garrison provides a simple yet comprehensive explanation of how the Fed's monetary policy actions created the housing bubble and the subsequent financial crisis. He concludes by highlighting the bleak future for the Fed's ability to manage the economy, and emphasizes the necessity of decentralized banking.​
