✨ DEBRIEF | Unpacking the Episode:
How is money created? Why? Whose job is it? We often discuss the Federal Reserve, and in this episode, we’re doing a deep dive into what the Fed is—its origins, its purpose, and ultimately, its concerning behavior.
What do we do about this institution? Something has to change, but what is the path forward?
Joining us to answer these questions is Christopher Leonard, investigative journalist and author of The Lords of Easy Money.
