In its mere century of existence, the United States Federal Reserve has been a target of more controversy than practically any other governmental entity. Despised by many, the Federal Reserve has been charged with overextending the U.S. government's role in our financial affairs, thus giving rise to the popular and ongoing call to 'end the Fed.'
Historical records indicate that the Federal Reserve's conception took place during a secret meeting of financiers, including executives from J.P. Morgan Company and the First National Bank of New York, at Jekyll Island, Georgia.
'I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men,' said President Woodrow Wilson, who helped bankers pass the legislation.
Many have died, trying to stave-off the Federal Reserve. President Trump is tackling it, head-on. What will be the end of it?
