Peter Schiff – The Fed Unspun: The Other Side of the Story


“Ben Bernanke fancies himself as a student of the Great Depression,” says renowned investment broker, global strategist, author, and Austrian economist Peter Schiff, “but… if he were my student he would have gotten an F.”

During a lecture entitled “The Fed Unspun: The Other Side of the Story”, Schiff responded to Bernanke’s recent four-part college lecture series, rebutting many of the Federal Reserve Chairman’s claims about the cause of the housing crisis, the role of the Federal Reserve, the value of the gold standard, and more.

Cosponsored by the FreedomWorks Foundation and hosted at Reason Foundation’s DC office on March 29, 2012, the lecture was followed by a lively Q&A with the assembled audience, including students who attended Bernanke’s George Washington University lectures.
