To the Editor:

I have just read Richard Salsman’s “The End of Central Banking, Part I” [TOS, Spring 2013], and am amazed at how much it has explained. I have been disturbed and frustrated by many of the Federal Reserve’s actions in recent years, but had not known where to turn to find explanations for what is going on and why the Fed has the authority for these actions. I had found nothing in my normal reading to help me understand these actions, but Dr. Salsman has explained their cause. My thanks to him for the superb history and commentary. Thanks also to The Objective Standard for publishing this article.

I look forward to Part II in the Summer 2013 issue and its suggestions for how to phase out this 100-year-old government-spending enabler.
