Federal Reserve 100TH Anniversary Conference on Jekyll Island

with one comment

The Federal Reserve is going back to Jekyll Island to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the infamous 1910 Jekyll Island meeting that spawned the draft legislation that would ultimately create the U.S. Federal Reserve.  The meeting was held on November 5th and 6th in the exact same building , the Jekyll Island Club, where the original 1910 meeting occurred.  There is a great book named Splendid Isolation: The Jekyll Island Millionaires Club 1888-1942.  It tells the story how the great business men of the time came down from New York in secrecy for this now famous meeting.

  1. Jesse “the Body Ventura” calls the FED a shadow government. He is actually pro-ending the FED. you gotta’ love those former fighters like Ventura and Manny Pacquiao. They believe they can do anything. And, maybe they can. 🙂
