• Yes it should

    It violates article one section eight sentence five of the constitution,
    "Congress shall have the power ; to coin money , regulate the value thereof , and of foreign coin , fix the standard weights and measures"
    It violates the constitution should be abolished, etc, is this even a debate?

  • The FED screwed everyone

    While I'm not against the idea of a central bank, I don't think that it should be privately-own like the FED. The state (and therefore the people) should decide how much money is printed. Also we shouldn't have to borrow that money at high interest rates. Why on earth should the government pay a privately own-bank?

  • Yes, the Federal Reserve should be abolished.

    In modern times where electronic currency is gradually gaining more and more popularity, and security, as well as online shopping with money that is nought but blips on a screen, the need for physical money that is expensive to produce and manage is decreasing more and more as days go by.

  • Yes, the Federal Reserve should be abolished.

    The federal reserve should be abolished because it's not fair to the citizens of the United States of the Americas. The federal reserve should not have been able to stay open this long. People have been hacking into it and it compromises the safety of the millions of Americans in the USA.

  • No, it should not.

    The Federal Reserve should not be abolished. In what parallel world can a country survive without a central bank? Do you want to go back to each state having its own bank and currency? What kind of "United States" would that be. I have always found this Ron Pal idea ridiculous.

  • We have to have it.

    No, the Federal Reserve should not be abolished, because we would be subject to wide swings in our currency and inflation if we did not have the Federal Reserve. Everyone loves to hate the federal reserve and all of the power that they seem to have, but they are a necessary regulation on American financial policy.

  • We need someone watching over things

    The Federal Reserve was very instrumental in guiding the economy out of the Great Recession. This organization has also been quite effective in managing continuation of good economic times, particularly in the 1990s. While they can not prevent all recessions, their existence does promote economic stability and growth in the bigger picture.
