Saule Omarova
Saule Omarova, præsident Joe Bidens nominerede til Office of the Controller of the Currency (OCC), indkaldte til en virtuel konference i marts 2021 for at fjerne alle private bankkonti og indskud.

Omarova talte ved Law and Political Economy (LPE) Projects konference 'Law & Political Economy: Democracy Beyond Neoliberalism' i marts.

Omarova diskuterede en af sine artikler, 'The People's Ledger How to Democratize Money and Finance the Economy', som ville hjælpe med at 'redesigne' det finansielle system og gøre økonomien 'mere retfærdig for alle.'

Hun sagde, at det ville ændre 'den private-offentlige magtbalance' og demokratisere finanserne til et mere systemisk niveau.

Under sin forklaring af sit papir sagde hun, at Federal Reserve, landets centralbank, kun kan bruge 'indirekte løftestænger' til at 'tilskynde private banker til at øge deres udlån.'

Hendes papir opfordrer til at eliminere alle banker og overføre alle bankindskud til 'FedAccounts' hos Federal Reserve.

Kommentar: Delvist oversat af fra Biden's banking nominee calls to eliminate all 'private bank accounts'
Det er ikke en ny ide, og det kan næppe undgås på sigt.

During her conference speech, she said, "There will be no more private bank accounts, and all of the deposit accounts will be held directly at the Fed":

Omarova said her proposal would give the Fed more "proactive" monetary policy tools, such as "helicopter money." She also pondered how the Federal Reserve could "take money" from Americans during an inflationary environment.

A former senior government official told Breitbart News that if the Senate were to confirm Omarova, she would have the "most powerful, least accountable" position over America's banking system.

When talking about FedAccounts, the former senior government official said, "The Democratic Party over the last couple of administrations, they want the government to essentially take over a lot of financial functions from banks."

Omarova's radical views led to 21 state financial officers calling for Biden to withdraw Omarova's nomination for the U.S. comptroller:

The LPE serves as a platform to discuss:
the role of law and legal discourse in the creation and maintenance of capitalism and in mediating tensions between capitalist order and democratic self-rule. Scholars in our network work to understand the relationship between market supremacy and racial, gender, and economic injustice; to articulate the relationship between capitalism and devaluation of social and ecological reproduction; and to explore the distinctive ways that law gives shape to and legitimates neoliberal capitalism, ranging from dynamics of financialization to the relation between the carceral state and capitalism. We also seek to offer concrete legal reforms designed to move beyond neoliberalism and toward a genuinely responsive, egalitarian democracy, with critical attention to the need for power and movement-building as part of any such transformation.

Republicans have already moved to oppose Omarova's nomination.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said Omarova's support of Communist ideals" disqualifies her for the position.

"Republicans will overwhelmingly oppose this self-described radical," Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) told Axios.
