"The approach to this report was journalistic, starting with the basic outline, which is built around ten very frequently asked questions :
- What is the legal-constitutional basis for the Federal Reserve System's power?
- How is the Fed structured today?
- Why did it take 122 years to get there?
- To whom is the Fed accountable?
- Why have the Fed's strongest critics been unable to significantly change the way it operates?
- What accounts for the memorable impact of William McChesney Martin, Jr.?
- What motivated and helped Paul Volcker to successfully combat double-digit inflation, while presiding over a recession?
- Why and how has Alan Greenspan remained so popular?
- Where do the media fit into the Fed's approach to accountability?
- Can the Fed provide any lessons for other democracies?"
