    In A Sudden Twist, A New Group Of Economists Are Blaming Bernanke For The Great Recession Ambrose Evans-Pritchard The Daily Telegraph (UK)September 24, 2012, 4:51 AMMonetarists from across the world can mostly agree on one thing.

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin fired a shot at the Federal Reserve in her coming-out speech in Hong Kong today, blaming the central bank for the current crisis and disagreeing with the idea that the Fed should have a greater role in preventing the next crisis. It was an echo of fellow Republican and Texas congressman Ron Paul, who has led the charge in Congress to perform an audit of the Federal Reserve with an eye to eventually eliminating it. How can we discuss reform without addressing the government policies at the root of the problems? The root of the...
