Jim Grant, the author of the Grant’s Interest Rate Observer who often times talks about the federal reserve and has jumped on the Ron Paul bandwagon lately desiring a return to a gold standard did an interview with Bloomberg Magazine.

An interview where he calls the Fed, a vampire squid of vampire squids.
