Temple of Secrets
The book with the title Temple of Secrets: How the Federal
Reserve Runs the Country was a best seller: What is the
Fed, and what does it do?

During 2001, as the economy slowed, the Fed cut interest rates 11 times from over 6 percent to below 2 percent. In 2000, more concerned about inflation than recession, the Fed raised interest rates.

How does the Fed change interest rates, and how does
that influence real GDP and inflation?
