Money for Nothing – Watch this movie!

This is a movie every person should watch to get a better understanding of what the Federal Reserve is, the history behind it and the folks that drive monetary policy under its mandate to manage inflation and the unemployment rate.

I was fortunate enough to attend the premier in Dallas last September and was thoroughly impressed.  The decisions that the Federal Reserve makes have outsized impacts on our every day lives that many have little understanding of.

I wrote recently about the Fed’s September 2013 announcement to continue QE and will be working on a follow up this week.  As many already know, QE has been ‘tapered’ by $10 billion a month in December and another $10 billion a month last month.

In the meantime, I highly recommend you watch “Money for Nothing”.  Check the link below to find a showing or buy the DVD.
