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.
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.
Canadians might also want to read two books by Walter Stewart: Bank Heist, and Towers of Gold.
I would also highly recommend The End of Money and The Future of Civilization by Thomas H. Greco, Jr., which does a very good job explaining the history of money and banking and it provides a practical solution that you will not find in most other "monetary reform" books.
Bank Heist: How Our Financial Giants Are Costing You MoneyTowers of gold, feet of clay: The Canadian banks
The End of Money and The Future of Civilization
It's that important a work.
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
