Richard (RJ) Eskow

As our nation's central bank, the Federal Reserve exerts tremendous control over our nation's banks. Unfortunately, it is also largely controlled by them. Too often, it fails to reflect the will of the people whose representatives created it.

Rather than relying on regulators to do a better job of policing the massive financial services sector, Sanders downsizes and leashes the largest players on Wall Street and overhauls the Federal Reserve in an effort to put America's central bank to work for working families.

It's not just politicians: Wealthy and powerful financiers regularly show a level of hubris that makes the pols look modest.

More importantly, if you could feel the outpouring of deep love that you always cherished, you would be the happiest person on earth.

Smokers selfishly pursued their own pleasure without facing up to the harm they were visiting on others. The rules offering a no-smoking section resemble the ineffective capital requirements that the industry lobbyists persuade regulators to adopt.

I don't anticipate that the Fed will (or should), "tighten" at its Federal Open Market Committee meetings on January 27-28. Nor do I think the Fed will tighten as soon as most people think.
