Format: Hardcover
Griffin's "Jekyll Island" book was an education for me. He dispays the ability to bring together widely scattered data sources and present them clearly and (relatively) concisely. If you want some insights into how Governments create money and inject it into the economy, how the moneyed interests have driven US foreign policies for their personal gain, and how governments pay for their excesses through inflation and not taxation, this book is a must read. Griffin is apparently a believer in a variety of conspiracy theories, some which he expands on a length. I believe the book would have been better with these toned down, because there is a danger he may be classified by some as part of the conspiracy theory lunatic fringe, when in fact this book is an insightful account of the history of money, and a great source of factual information whether the reader accepts all of his conclusions or not.

Most people in Canada and the United States have no idea how money is REALLY created, who creates it and it's TRUE history.

Inside this book you will learn everything you always wanted to know about money but were never taught or if you were taught it was misinformation.

The writing style of G. Edward Griffin is very easy to read and understand. After reading this book and digesting it you will never trust the banks, politicians and the media again. It's a colossal scam and it's right under our noses but it's there.

Buy it, borrow it from the library, read it. It might even get you on a quest to tell other people about the scam. I have never read a bad review about this book from any source. It's that important of a book and it's excellently written and researched.

This book blew me away. I could not put it down. It is a far deeper history of the U.S. then I ever read before. The click that runs the U.S. and the world for that matter are very much exposed by this book. I checked the references made in each chapter and they are right on. America is supposed to be the home of the brave and the land of the free!This book reveals America is home of the lied to and land of the pawn. Wake up America. Take your government back make it truely a government of the people. Read this book and spread the word.

Do not read this book if you are not prepared to never be able to look at a Federal Reserve Note the same way ever again.

With a lot of primary source material, Griffin dissects the "Federal" Reserve System of the United States. With frightening accuracy, he chronicles how the stated goals of the "Federal" Reserve are mere platitudes for the general public. The System is indeed a cartel of private banks interested in one thing only: Making money in the form of interest from large banks, third-world countries, and the US Government (i.e. us - the taxpayers). Did you know that the US "dollar" (which isn't a dollar at all, as you'll find out) is actually being used as the reserve currency of the world? Did you know that US "dollars" are loaned to third-world countries with the knowledge that they will never be paid back? Did you know that the "Federal" Reserve isn't federal? That it prefers governments to carry astronomical debts? That "Federal" Reserve "Notes" aren't actually notes at all?

This book is packed with information. I read it like a textbook and took notes as I went at a rate of one page of notes to a mere ten pages of book. Don't let that scare you away - you can just pick it up and read it, too. It reads like a murder mystery, but unfortunately, it's all true.

Until you read this book, you probably won't know what is really going on in the world.
It's that important a work.

This is an amazing book. It is disconcerting to think I have lived 50 plus years, been in the banking and real estate industries a large portion of those years and never had a clue about how money is created, how banks REALLY operate and the incredible history and functions of the NOT so federal reserve. Initially, I was fascinated with the information, but by the end of the book, I was furious - furious at how we have all been led along and controlled - don't miss this - a Large Light Bulb comes on and you cannot forget it or walk away.

This book details what is and has been wrong with our entire financial system since the inception of the Fed. It displays how you cannot truly trust anything in the financial sector at face value.

Educate yourself, READ up on the details and even verify on your own time elsewhere if you like. Banking is a disgrace .. read it, you'll see.

Magnificent book .. highly recommended reading

Think you know anything about the dollar bills in your wallet?
Think you know who runs this country?
Think that we live in a "free market" economy?
Think again.
Griffin piles up facts and analyzes them with relentless, cold logic. The picture he paints isn't pretty. The Federal Reserve System is a legal cartel expressly designed to create riskless profits for member banks, while simultaneously turning our entire financial system into the legal and moral equivalent of a Las Vegas casino. Yeah, you might get lucky for a while, but the house will always win. Our monetary system is a pyramid scheme that only functions as long as debt is being created at an accelerating rate.
This all sounds crazy, but Griffin has the facts to back it up. The challenging part about Griffin's arguments is that he explicitly states that the foundation and perpetuation of the Federal Reserve System was a conspiracy. Whenever the "C"-word is mentioned, it is an unfortunate truth that many people get turned off. But as Griffith himself says, if a group of people, operating in secret, create a system that explicitly benefits themselves at the expense of others, what else can you call it but conspiracy? Heck, I guess you could call it a "peanut" or a "canteloupe" but it would still add up to the same thing--a system expressly designed to reward failure and punish diligence and honesty. Kinda explains all the crookedness and incompetence behind all the wall street and corporate shenanigans of the last decade, doesn't it?
And if you keep an open mind and pay close attention to his arguments, you'll see that the best place to hide a conspiracy is in plain sight.
If you care about free markets, and your constitutional rights, you will read this book today.
