As the incoming chairman of the House monetary policy subcommittee,
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) will hold the bully pulpit when it comes to the
nation's money woes.
He's not wasting any time getting right to the heart of the matter.
The libertarian-leaning conservative has long been a critic of the US
Federal Reserve and central banking as a whole, but this may be a new
one: speaking with CNBC recently, Paul said he views the Fed as a
"monopoly" that could benefit from the introduction of competition.
