While this book is satisfyingly comprehensive in its look at the American version of central banking, the book also has its gaps. Missing is a detailed discussion of the earlier European model of central banking which the Americans have emulated. Read Professors Sutton and Quigley for that. Also missing is a discussion of the dark offshore banking system created by the Bank of England. (For two useful introductions read: Treasure Islands by Nicholas Shaxson, and Offshore by Alain Denault.) The Bank of International Settlements-- the central bankers central bank, located in Switzerland and having a dark history of its own--is outlined in Tower of Basel, by Adam LeBor.
Fair disclosure: I don't happen to agree with Griffin's libertarian views or his love of free-market capitalism, but I found it fascinating that a certifiable member of the so-called alt-right could be so bang-on about the smell of the swamp at the top of the capitalist system. His case to get rid of the Fed is convincing. Where his book is weak is what he would propose to replace it. But first things first. People first have to understand the problem before before a discussion about solutions can be intelligently engaged. Shakespeare once said (satirically) the first thing to do is get rid of the lawyers. Sorry, Mr. S. The first thing to do is to get rid of the bankers. Griffin tells us why.
The book describes the clandestine nature of the banksters' activities, then and now, and exposes how their activities are designed to transfer the bulk of the world's wealth to them through inflation, taxes, wars and manipulation of most of the worlds' markets for stocks, bonds and commodities. The top tenth of one percent of the wealthiest families on earth own the majority of the world's assets and their percentage ownership continues rising year by year, thanks to the control they exert over the world's finances through the Federal Reserve.
Their ultimate goal is world domination through creation of a "New World Order" run by them. Their methods include include inserting a Radio Frequency ID chip in anyone dumb enough to accept one so they can turn off your access to your bank accounts and other records in the event you are foolish enough to dissent from their demands.
This book is not for you if you are gullible enough to accept the managed news put out by the bankster-controlled national media. It's an absolute must read for anyone who wants to understand who really runs the world and why the middle class in the wealthier nations is finding it harder and harder to make ends meet.
