The Federal Reserve has stopped reporting a number called M3. This statistic is the best indicator of how much new money the Fed is creating. New money causes inflation. Inflation raises prices and destroys the value of your savings. The only reason for the Fed to stop reporting M3 is because they want to hide how much new money they're going to create -- like a counterfeiter hiding from the cops in a basement. Fortunately, Congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill to make the Fed start reporting M3 again. We need to urge Congress to pass this bill. You can do so here.
