Religious Bigotry at the Fed

People across the world would be rightfully outraged if the Federal Reserve enforced some bigoted and hateful policy, such as prohibbitting banks from offering Sharia-compliant banking, or from otherwise evangelizing the power of finance to certain religious communities.

Every day makes it harder and harder to understand why Ben Bernanke does not just step down.
