Product Description

From the Back Cover

Ellen Brown has applied her training as a litigating attorney, researcher and writer to the monetary field, unearthing facts that even the majority of banking and financial experts ignore: ranging from the privatization of money creation, to the Plunge Protection Team, to the Federal Reserve's "Helicopter Money." Read it; you'll get information you need in order to understand what is going on in our financial markets today.


- Bernard Lietaer, former European central banker,
author of "The Future of Money" and "Of Human Wealth"

Literacy on the topic of money is at an all-time low. This book is tremendously important not only in its presentation, but by drawing attention to an age-old topic that should have a major presence in the public mind.


- Benjamin Gisin, Author of "Farmers and Ranchers Guide to Credit," publisher of "Touch the Soil" magazine, and a senior loan officer for a top 10 bank --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
If you wish to learn more about who really runs this troubled world, then read this book and reflect carefully upon its contents. If you have wondered, as I have, why the whole world - governments, corporations and individuals alike - is increasingly mired in debt, then read this book. If you think naively that banks are basically brokers who mediate between depositors and borrowers, then read this book. It will show you how you are fundamentally mistaken. If you think that you understand what money is and how it comes into being then you are probably wrong again and this book will tell you how and why. Its publication is timely as the debt-ridden world financial system now strains to cope with the US subprime debacle. If you have been lured into borrowing more than you can repay and you are about to lose your house, then read this book to understand more deeply your predicament. If your pension fund or your savings have been disastrously invested in risky and maybe now worthless securitized debt then this book will help you to see where your hard earned money has gone and who has benefited.

Although The Web of Debt is mainly about the US banking system and the US dollar, its message that the money supply is in the hands of a private banking cartel and is not in the hands of elected governments is applicable to many countries. It shows how money is created from nothing and then lent to governments at interest, for no good reason other than the historical usurping of this all important function by powerful and ambitious men for their own private gain. Absurdly, governments must then tax their citizens to pay interest to the private bankers, foregoing the obvious alternative of issuing debt-free money themselves.

This book makes a very important contribution to understanding the mess the world is in and what to do about it. Contrary to the impression given by a one star reviewer below, this book is not primarily about economics, but finance. There is a difference! For a start, most mainstream economists have little interest in money and debt, where it comes from and who controls it. Money has no place in their other-worldly theories. Meanwhile, back on the planet it is just plain old commonsense that money makes the world go around; it represents power, and those who control the money thereby control the world (Kissinger said something along those lines). So Ellen Brown's seminal work goes to the heart of the matter. Five stars.

Now to the point of this review, which is not so much a reflection on the substance of this work, as a heads up regarding the new 5th (January 2012) Edition. A university librarian once told me that publishers generally only bring out a new edition of a work if there is at least 10% new content. That is not the case with the latest `Web of Debt'. I have not been able to discern any difference at all between the new edition and the previous 4th (March 2010) edition. The covers and blurb are the same, the chapter headings, the total number of pages and the pagination are the same. Even the `Author's Note to the Fifth Revised Edition' is a word for word copy of the `Author's Note to the Fourth Revised Edition'. It may be that if I read through the entire 544 pages of both editions in tandem, I might find some subtle revision or correction. Which I suspect is unlikely to be anything significant enough to shell out for. Do correct me if I am wrong!

I got my new copy to keep abreast of Ellen Brown's latest thinking in this area, but I was disappointed by this apparently pointless new edition. Yet it wasn't really a waste of cash - now I can help spread the word by passing one on. Either one -they're equally relevant.

Banking is essentially a Ponzi-scheme: banks actually CREATE the (totally worthless because backed by nothing) money supply as loans, while making it appear to be controlled by governments. For over 400 years, these banksters have used this control to enslave nations and ensure perpetual wars and bondage. Keeping all "profits" (interest), they cause the so-called economic 'boom & bust' cycle, recovering their losses (via pathological gambling) from us via taxes - showered over them whenever THEY might otherwise go bust.

The gist of this is in all David Icke's books, in shorter, summary form, and also in books such as "The New Empire of Debt" and the superb "Creature From Jekyll Island". The chapter "Funny Money" in the "Gods of Eden" by William Bramley (first published over three decades ago) provided an elegantly simple - and chilling - explanation of the origins of the money frauds which are currently causing global economic meltdown. "The Grip of Death", whilst written in an old-fashioned manner, also contains excellent points. For those familiar with any of these books, this is a good refresher book and, for those who are new to the truth, it's a great start, providing a brief but horrifying history and a diagnosis of the current failures in our financial institutions.

There are some flaws but these are mere quibbles and, in February 2008, the author wrote (on Amazon.com): "Yes, I caught errors myself, which is why I just spent the last 3 months doing an updated and revised version, available on Amazon now; and am working on another revision with a long postscript, hopefully available in a month. The banking system is collapsing very quickly, warranting frequent updates.
