Why The Establishment Fears a Trump-led Fed

• Schiff Gold

While in office, Trump blamed the Fed for tightening monetary policy. Now members of Trump's team allegedly plan to give a re-elected Trump more power over the Fed, igniting panic from mainstream economists about a politicized Fed. Our guest commentator explains why the real risk, from the establishment's perspective, is not that Trump will turn the Fed into a political organization but that he will expose that it already is one.

Discourse about the Federal Reserve is frequently full of myths, dishonest framing, and outright lies. Listen to a press conference by Chairman Jerome Powell or read an article from a major outlet's lead Fed correspondent and you're bound to hear at least a few. For instance, it's common for the financial press to characterize the Fed's current conundrum as "walking a tightrope."
