Description:
Hearings before the Senate Committee on Finance, pursuant to S. Res. 315 "authorizing and directing the Finance Committee to make an investigation and study of the present economic problems of the United States with a view to securing constructive suggestions with respect to the solution of such problems."

It was at his testimony during these hearings that Marriner Eccles, at the time President of the First Security Corporation in Ogden, Utah, was recognized by government officials, which lead to Eccles being asked to take on the position of an assistant to Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., and shortly thereafter was nominated by President Roosevelt for the position of Governor of the Federal Reserve Board.

Money Trust Investigation: Investigation of Financial and Monetary Conditions in the United States Under House Resolutions Nos. 429 and 504

Money Trust Investigation: Investigation of Financial and Monetary Conditions in the United States Under House Resolutions Nos. 429 and 504


Go to Publication

Description:
In 1912, a special subcommittee was convened by the Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, Arsene P. Pujo. Its purpose was to investigate the "money trust," a small group of Wall Street bankers that exerted powerful control over the nation's finances. The committee's majority report concluded that a group of financial leaders had abused the public trust to consolidate control over many industries. The Pujo Committee report created a climate of public opinion that lead to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914.

The hearings were conducted between May 16, 1912 and February 26, 1913. The transcript of the hearings was published in three volumes. It is presented in the original 29 parts with the index, a table of interlocking directorates of 18 financial institutions, and the majority/minority report of the committee.

Recovery: How Fast and How Far?


View Issue

Description:
This report, produced by the Congressional Budget Office, was written in 1975 when key economic indicators were signaling that the U.S. was recovering from its longest and worst recession since the 1930s. The report discusses forecasts for increasing production, but continued high unemployment, and likely renewed inflation due to rising prices. The CBO presents alternative public policy actions, including recommendations for the Federal Reserve System, that were estimated to have significant effects on the rate of recovery during the following couple of years.
