As FDR's Federal Reserve chairman between 1934 and 1948, Marriner Stoddard Eccles (1890 - 1977) put into play numerous policies that permitted the Federal Reserve to be sublimated to the interests of the Treasury; as a result, he is largely remembered as the patron saint of deficit spending. Upon leaving that position during the Truman administration he went on the lecture circuit where he repeatedly condemned both the post-war economic policy as well as the Cold War policies of the State Department. The attached article summarizes a talk he gave at the University of Maryland in February of 1950:

"We do not have the economic strength to hold Russia within a certain area and cannot provide military and economic aid to all those countries outside of [the] U.S.S.R... Today the U.N. is only a myth. Every place we look, we see the shadow of the Kremlin".
