CONGRESS HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANY LAW THAT IS 'NECESSARY AND PROPER' FOR THE EXECUTION OF ITS ENUMERATED POWERS (ART. I, SEC. 8, CL. 18). A LAW CREATING A BUREAU OF THE MINT, FOR EXAMPLE, IS NECESSARY AND PROPER FOR THE CONGRESS TO EXERCISE ITS RIGHT TO COIN MONEY.

YAWN!

Is the Federal Reserve a privately owned corporation?
Yes and no.

The Federal Reserve (the Fed) enjoys a unique public/private structure that operates within the government, but is still relatively independent of government to isolate the Fed from day-to-day political pressures in fulfilling its varying roles. As stated in The Federal Reserve System Purposes &

Functions:
The Federal Reserve System is considered to be an independent central bank. It is so, however, only in the sense that its decisions do not have to be ratified by the President or anyone else in the executive branch of the government. The entire System is subject to oversight by the U.S. Congress….the Federal Reserve must work within the framework of the overall objectives of economic and financial policy established by the government.
History

Prior to the Fed’s formation, the United States experienced a number of economic downturns and financial panics. To help alleviate the problems associated with these swings in the economy, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, 1913. The act’s opening paragraph outlines its varying functions:

An Act to provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes.
Since 1913, legislation has passed to augment some of the act’s original purposes and to clarify the varying roles of the Fed.
Structure

Congress set up the Federal Reserve System to make it autonomous and to isolate it from day-to-day political pressures. For example, the members of the Board of Governors are appointed to serve 14-year terms that do not coincide with presidential terms. Key components of the Federal Reserve System are:
The Board of Governors—Located in Washington, D.C., Board members are appointed by the U.S. President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Board members and staff are civil service employees.
The 12 regional Reserve Banks—Located around the country, the 12 Federal Reserve Banks are chartered as private corporations. Employees are not civil service.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)—Composed of the Federal Reserve Governors and the Federal Reserve Bank presidents, the FOMC is charged with conducting monetary policy.

The 12 Federal Reserve Banks operate like other businesses; each has its own board of directors that selects the Reserve Bank president and first vice president, with approval from the Board of Governors. Each Branch of a Reserve Bank has its own board of directors. A majority of these directors are appointed by the Branch’s Reserve Bank; the others are appointed by the Board of Governors.

While Congress establishes key objectives the Fed must follow, the Fed generally works independently of the federal government to administer its core responsibilities.
Those duties include:

Conducting monetary policy
Supervising and regulating banking and financial institutions
Providing payments services to financial institutions
The 12 Federal Reserve Banks have “independent” research staffs that advise their Reserve Bank presidents on monetary policy and the economy. Each Reserve Bank also has regulatory responsibilities including the supervision and regulation of financial institutions. The Reserve Banks also handle the Federal Reserve System’s business operations—it is in this area that Reserve Banks operate more like private businesses, selling services like electronic funds transfers, check processing, and coin and currency services to financial institutions.

WRONG, All the Fed does is buy and sell securities on the open market, the same securities that are available to the general public at the same price.

PS: All profits are given to the US Treasury.

But then since you were wrong about all your facts, no wonder your conclusion if erroneous.

"I've located Senate Doc. 23, 76th Congress, 1st Session. There's no "I am a most unhappy man" and there's no "I have unwittingly ruined my country"."

"I have also looked at The Federal Reserve Hoax (1959) in a library. It has no references for any of its quotes. The quote "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country" does not appear in Dwinell's The Story of Our Money (1946), and she would certainly have included it if the quote was known then. I conclude that the quote came into existence between 1946 and 1959 and is not genuine. KHirsch 03:05, 9 January 2009 (UTC)"

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Woodrow_Wil...

Seems many have been trying to verify such an important quote yet none can find anything in the citations it allegedly came from.

But that's ok, lies and bs are good enough for oh elevator boy-sheep 20 pilots STREET CORNER JEEBUS!

LMFAO! And when you get beyond essay and make a affirmative statement you are WRONG AGAIN!

A Brief History of Federal Reserve Audits

Since its inception in 1913 the Federal Reserve System has been subjected to a variety of financial and performance audits by Congress, the executive branch, and private accounting firms, although responsibility for this task has shifted from time to time. From 1913 to 1921 the Board of Governors, then known as the Federal Reserve Board which sets monetary policy and regulates the activities of the Federal Reserve Banks, was audited annually by the U.S. Treasury Department. In 1921 Congress created the Government Accounting Office (GAO) and assigned it to audit the Board until 1933. In the Banking Act of 1933, Congress voted specifically to remove the Board from the GAO's jurisdiction. From 1933 to 1952 audit teams from the twelve Federal Reserve Banks performed the annual examination of the BOG's books. From 1952 to 1978, the Board, under authorization from Congress, decided to employ nationally recognize accounting firms to conduct the audits of itself to insure independent oversight. This provided an external evaluation of the adequacy and effectiveness of the examination procedures.1

In 1978 Congress passed the Federal Banking Agency Audit Act (31 USCA §714). It placed the Federal Reserve System back under the auditing authority of the GAO. The Act significantly increased the access of the GAO to the Federal Reserve Banks, the Board, and the Federal Open Market Committee (the FOMC). Since then, the GAO has conducted over 100 financial audits and performance audits of the three Federal Reserve bodies.3
Scope of GAO Audits

Some of the more important GAO performance audits of the Fed have been in the areas of bank supervision, payment systems activities, and government securities activities. In the first area, the GAO examined how well the Fed was enforcing its regulatory powers over its member banks. In 1992 it drew attention to the Fed's sluggish compliance with regulatory reforms mandated by the Foreign Bank Supervision Act of 1991. In examining the Fed's payment system activities, the GAO made the Fed aware of how its pricing policies for such services as check-clearing affected private suppliers of check-clearing services, and also suggested ways to speed up the process of check collections. Security markets for government debt is a crucial market, and GAO performance audits of the Fed have lead to more openness in the primary dealer system, particularly concerning the disclosure of price information. The GAO is also involved in several ongoing performance audits of the Fed such as analysis of risks and benefits of interstate banking, regulation of derivatives, and the budget of the Federal Reserve system

The Fed essentially controls the money supply by either ordering the sale of Treasury Notes or the purchase of Treasury Notes. This has an effect on interest rates and the economy. Generally, if the government borrows too much money interest rates go up.

Bingo, and the main reason it is quasi private is so one party or the other can not use it for the sole purpose of political gain, six months before you are elected, flood the money supply, your last six months will look good, people earn and buy more and seem to have more money, then after six months inflation starts kicking in hard and the economy goes down the toilet, all because your opponent placed a economic time bomb in place.

That's why the Fed controls increases and decreases in the money supply by buying and selling securities on the open market without government interference, to protect my pocketbook from dirty politics.
