The Federal Reserve System is the main banking system in America. While it is not completely evil in of itself, many compartments and groups inside it have lead to corruption and even the Great Depression in 1930 and the Recession of 2008. An example of this is Bernard Madoff . Many officials have even run off with the money of others while their cronies hid them. Some, such as the serious case of William Bryan Jennings , a Morgan Stanley banker, did a serious crime and never gets convicted.
