Generally, I am not an avid reader of the Rolling Stone, but this article explains how the Fed bailouts work to encourage bad lending practices and corrupt Wall Street dealings. Although the author bashes those of us who support Ron Paul's movement to audit the Federal Reserve, he gives plausible explanations for Bernanke's blatant stonewalling of fed audits. If you're into money matters, it's an interesting article.
