FrankenFed (Frankenstein monster + Federal Reserve)

"FrankenFed” (Frankenstein monster + Federal Reserve) refers to a frightening Federal Reserve ("Fed")—the monetary system of the United States. Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus (1822) is a gothic horror novel that was written by British author Mary Shelley; eccentric scientist Dr. Victor Frankenstein brings a dead “monster” to life. The “FrankenFed” term was popularized by Anthony J. Hilder’s film, FrankenFed—The Monster Amongst Us (2010).

“Bankenstein” (bank + Frankenstein monster) is a similar term.


Wikipedia: Frankenstein
Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley about eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley’s name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823.

Wikipedia: Federal Reserve System
The Federal Reserve System (also known as the Federal Reserve, and informally as the Fed) is the central banking system of the United States. It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, largely in response to a series of financial panics, particularly a severe panic in 1907. Over time, the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Reserve System have expanded, and its structure has evolved. Events such as the Great Depression in the 1930s were major factors leading to changes in the system.

In theory, one of the main functions of public education is to help create a citizenry that understands the functions of government and is able to make informed judgments about how public policy will affect future generations. It is a basic justification for studying history often repeated by historians, that those who fail to learn about the past are doomed to repeat it.
