look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
 
1.
The Federal Reserve System. The Chairman of The Fed is Alan Greenspan, the most powerful man in the world. Alan Greenspan HATES The Stock Market and gets great pleasure from making ambiguous statements during Senate hearings that throw The Market into a tizzy.

The Fed is responsible for regulating the monetary policy and interest rates for The United States.

When Alan Greenspan twitches his nose the wrong way, Wall Street contorts, sometimes violently, plunging at 64 feet per second.
