The Federal Reserve—the central bank of the United States—is the most powerful peacetime bureaucracy in the federal government. Under the chairmanship of Alan Greenspan (1987-2006), the Fed achieved near mythical status for its part in managing the economy, and Greenspan was lauded as a genius. Few seemed to notice or care that Fed officials operated secretly with almost no public accountability. There was a courageous exception to this lack of oversight, however: Henry B. Gonzalez (D-TX)—chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Financial Services (banking) Committee. In Deception and Abuse at the Fed, Robert Auerbach, a former banking committee investigator, recounts major instances of Fed mismanagement and abuse of power that were exposed by Rep. Gonzalez, including: Blocking Congress and the public from holding powerful Fed officials accountable by falsely declaring—for 17 years—it had no transcripts of its meetings; Manipulating the stock and bond markets in 1994 under cover of a preemptive strike against inflation; Allowing $5.5 billion to be sent to Saddam Hussein from a small Atlanta branch of a foreign bank—the result of faulty bank examination practices by the Fed; Stonewalling Congressional investigations and misleading the Washington Post about the $6,300 found on the Watergate burglars. Auerbach provides documentation of these and other abuses at the Fed, which confirms Rep. Gonzalez's belief that no government agency should be allowed to operate with the secrecy and independence in which the Federal Reserve has shrouded itself. Auerbach concludes with recommendations for specific, broad-ranging reforms that will make the Fed accountable to the government and the people of the United States.

Dat het leven elk jaar duurder wordt, is voor ons net zo vanzelfsprekend als het feit dat de zon elke ochtend opkomt in het oosten. Maar dat de prijzen almaar stijgen, is een gegeven van de afgelopen eeuw. In alle eeuwen daarvoor zag de economie er heel anders uit. Wat in 1450 een gulden kostte, was honderden jaren later nog nagenoeg even duur. Van inflatie was geen sprake. Als de prijzen tijdelijk omhoog gingen, daalden ze daarna weer even hard. De koopkracht veranderde nauwelijks. Dat veranderde drastisch rond 1900. Toen begonnen de prijzen ongekend hard te stijgen. De sporadische prijsdaling die nog voorkwam, was miniem, en dat gold niet alleen voor Nederland, dat gold voor de hele wereld. Wat is er een eeuw geleden gebeurd waardoor alles sindsdien elk jaar duurder wordt? Op basis van historische gegevens, cijfers over prijsontwikkeling en economische analyse toont Edin Mujagic onomwonden aan dat de geboorte van de centrale banken de doodsteek is geweest voor de waarde van ons geld. Niet alleen holden deze banken de afgelopen eeuw de koopkracht van ons geld uit - een proces dat nog altijd doorgaat, de laatste tijd zelfs harder dan ooit, maar daardoor riepen ze ook ander onheil over ons af, waaronder de huidige economische crisis. Econoom Mujagic laat niet alleen overtuigend zien wat de (systematisch onderschatte) rol van de centrale banken in de wereldeconomie is geweest, hij waarschuwt ook voor de wereld van morgen.
