I wonder if he's going to block Audit the Pentagon too whenever that gets going.

I've never heard a defense on why we shouldn't audit the Fed. Anyone?

The main defense against it is that it would be a waste of time/money, as the Fed isn't doing anything wrong ever. Or something.

Aside from that, it's a crazy random happenstance you'd ask - because I was just reading an article published by Eichengreen yesterday on why we shouldn't audit the Fed.

I will begrudgingly admit, he does make some good points - but, overall, I feel that the benefits outweigh the risks.
