Danielle DiMartino Booth, a former Dallas Federal Reserve official, released a new book this week entitled Fed Up. The book, a first-person account of the inner-workings of the Federal Reserve (Fed), provides readers with unique insight into the operations, leadership, and mentality of what is unquestionably the world’s most powerful financial force. What it reveals about the Fed is neither flattering nor confidence-inspiring. By pulling back the curtain to reveal the Fed’s modern-day machinations, DiMartino Booth provides an assessment of the highest levels of economic thinking and how it is afflicting our economy.
Throughout the book, it is clear her purpose is equal parts entertainment and education with a dash of sermon to underline the gravity of the situation. Fed Up is compelling, well-written and its objectives are clear; expose the hubris at the Fed which results in poor decision-making and generate much-needed debate to bring about change in how the Fed functions. As you read this review, and hopefully the book as well, we remind you the Fed is sworn to serve the American public and should be held accountable to this obligation.
We thank Danielle for giving us the privilege of reading an advance copy of her book so that we can provide this timely review to you. Neither 720Global, LLC nor its owners have received any form of direct or indirect compensation in exchange for the review of this book.
