It took me 5 years of independent research to arrive at the same conclusions. Could it really be possible? That practically the whole planet and everything on it (including ourselves) is owned lock, stock and barrel by a tiny group of people while the rest of us struggle our whole lives just to carry on filling their pockets? In the whole of that time, as I peeled away layer after layer of the truth, I thought I was mad or paranoid. What a relief to find my conclusions confirmed so thoroughly, not only by G. Edward Griffin but by the likes of Murray Rothbard and Milton Friedman among others. Herein you will find the simple solution to all the world's major man-made problems; war, famine, social unrest, dishonest politicians and unjust political systems. How unfortunate that nothing will change until it's far, far, far too late, and how tragic that most people, when presented with this story, will automatically react exactly as they've been programmed to react: "Conspiracy theory!"

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough money to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they OUGHT to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." - Sir Josiah Stamp, former Director of the Bank of England.

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the NY Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years.

Did you know that in 1930 six individuals owned more than a sixth of the worlds wealth?
That the Federal Reserve was designed to bail out big banks at the expense of the taxpayer? That the Federal Reserve is a private corporation with shareholders like Goldman, Morgan etc
If you truly want to understand how the world works then read this book.
Rothschild was quoted as saying Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws.
After all if you had the power to create money out of nothing then earn interest plus capital repayment on that then what would you do?

Well written, well thought out and interesting book. However, you may find that if you read too much at one time it will make you fume with anger about the ways you are being manipulated.

Format: Paperback
This book will open your eyes to the fact that our government is not the warm and friendly thing that the evening news makes it out to be. As Americans, we are very optimistic, and often this is helpful for our sanity and survival. There are times, however, when our sense of outrage is too much. This is the effect the book had on me. The collusion of forces (both knowing and willing, and the duped) described in this book is a real threat to our constitutional republic, freedom, and ability to prosper. The notion that the current tax economy and inflated currency is "normal", speaks to the severity of the problem, the lengths to which the powerful have covered their tracks, and the inability of the common man to see past the propaganda. Thank God for Mr. Griffin, for his courage to put his life in danger. There are many powerful and wealthy people who do not want the truth known. I would suggest that those who liked this book share it with others, and educate yourself in the law. Look under the hood of other widely misunderstood government agencies such as Social Security and IRS. The pattern is disturbing. Also, read the constitution, and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors. Our founding fathers gave us the protection we needed to live as free people. We have ignored the written law, given the corrupt politicians free reign, and there appears to be no end in sight. This book can properly educate, and this is the only way to turn around our corrupt money and tax system.
Shame on Clint from Orlando FL (The only reviewer not giving 5 stars). Beware of propaganda from those with a vested interest.

Format: Paperback
This book is without a doubt the best book written on the "Federal" Reserve (which is about as "federal" as Federal Express). The book's four chapters explaining what money is (and isn't!) are the best I have ever read (and that includes the late, great economist Murray Rothbard's "What Has Government Done to Our Money"). My only qualm with this book is that Mr. Griffin should have left out the "C" word (i.e., conspiracy) from the text. He should just tell the history of the "Fed" along with his excellent economic analysis and let the reader figure out for him or herself what is going on. It becomes difficult to recommend this book to anybody outside of the John Birch Society (for which Mr. Griffin is a writer). But all in all, Mr. Griffin has done an admirable job. This is the true story of the monstrosity we affectionately call "The Fed" -- not like that Establishment whitewash on the "The Fed" by Rolling Stone writer William Greider called "Secrets of the Temple." For those of you who are skeptical about reading Mr. Griffin's long tome, you might want to start with Murray Rothbard's much shorter "The Case Against the Fed," before moving on to the Griffin work.
