Fed Up

Rating
An insider's unflinching expose of the toxic culture within the Federal Reserve. In the early 2000s, as a Wall Street escapee writing a financial column for the Dallas Morning News. Booth attracted attention for her bold criticism of the Fed's low interest rate policies and her cautionary warnings about the bubbly housing market.Nobody was more surprised than she when the folks at the Dallas Federal Reserve invited her aboard. Figuring she could have more of an impact on Fed policies from the inside, she accepted the call to duty and rose to be one of Dallas Fed president Richard Fisher's closest advisors. To her dismay, the culture at the Fed--and its leadership--were not just ignorant of the brewing financial crisis, but indifferent to its very possibility. They interpreted their job of keeping the economy going to mean keeping Wall Street afloat at the expense of the American taxpayer. But bad Fed policy created unaffordable housing, skewed incentives, rampant corporate financial engineering, stagnant wages, an exodus from the labor force, and skyrocketing student debt. Booth observed firsthand how the Fed abdicated its responsibility to the American people both before and after the financial crisis--and how nobody within the Fed seems to have learned or changed from the experience. Today, the Federal Reserve is still controlled by 1,000 PhD economists and run by an unelected West Coast radical with no direct business experience. The Fed continues to enable Congress to grow our nation s ballooning debt and avoid making hard choices, despite the high psychological and monetary costs. And our addiction to the "heroin" of low interest rates is pushing our economy towards yet another collapse. This book is Booth's clarion call for a change in the way America's most powerful financial institution is run--before it's too late."

Reviews

"This view from the inside is not to be missed." --A. GARY SHILLING, president of A. Gary Shilling & Co., Inc. "Danielle DiMartino Booth has written an informed, thoughtful, eye-opening--and justifiably angry--memoir of her days at the Federal Reserve. A monetary broadside for our populist world." --JAMES GRANT, publisher of Grant's Interest Rate Observer "An outsider-turned-insider gives a gripping account of how false, but stubbornly held beliefs at the Fed helped create the global economic crisis as well as contribute to rising inequality in the United States. Brutally honest and engagingly written . . . A mustread." --WILLIAM R. WHITE, former economic adviser and head of the monetary and economic department at the Bank for International Settlements "Penned with bold prose and laced with compelling arguments, Booth delineates the exact reasons that the Fed has failed America and why America should abandon the Fed. Fed Up is a must-read tale of the over-reaching power, unfettered egos and clueless bravado that struck at the core of American stability, and must do so no longer." --NOMI PRINS, author of All the Presidents' Bankers "The road to hell is paved with good intentions. [Booth] personalizes and clearly explains the influence, the danger, and the consequences of monetary activism gone wild." --PETER BOOCKVAR, chief market analyst at The Lindsey Group "This book is a must read for every American who wants to stay informed and educated about our financial future." --ALLEN WEST, member of the 112th US Congress "If you want to read a strong counterpoint--from the perspective of a lonely non-Keynesian within the Fed--to the 'we saved the world' narratives of those who led us to zero yields, asset bubbles, and a fast-shrinking middle class, this is it." --ROB ARNOTT, chairman of Research Affiliates "Danielle DiMartino Booth proves that insightful technical analysis and hilarious anecdotes can exist between the covers of the same book." --JAMES RICKARDS, author of The Road to Ruin "Booth's insider status, captivating personality, mellifluous writing style, and keen sense of observation are wrapped up into a thoughtful analysis of our country's dependency on the Fed and the worrisome consequences of that addiction." --DOUGLAS A. KASS, founder and president of Seabreeze Partners Management Inc. "DiMartino Booth combines a lively writing style with careful research, quotes and annotations. Her first-hand account, which juxtaposes the complacency inside the Fed with the unfolding crisis outside, should appeal to a wide range of readers, from critics of the Fed and market participants to the average person eager to learn how monetary policy is conceived and executed." -CAROLINE BAUM, MarketWatch
