As Rand Paul grows more vociferous with regard the Janet Yellen nomination, he and his father are once again pressing for more transparency into what really occurs at the Fed. While some argue that there has never been a more ‘transparent’ Fed as we are plagued with volumes of double-speak (projections and prognostications), Ron Paul explains in this brief clip that “the big stuff is done in secret,” including international central bank bailouts. His hope, based on the fact that Janet Yellen is a self-described agent of transparency that “the time is ripe,” to truly audit the Fed.
“We don’t know the details of the trillions of dollars that were used to bail out banks and central banks around the world and corporations during the crisis,” Paul said. “The numbers that they give you I don’t think are all that revealing.”
