It was ok time spent, I thought the book was more financially oriented, however the subtitle hints and other conspiracies. And after finishing, the book it is a collection of 20 or conspiracies. Some of which make you think about things we took for granted(e.g. fluorinated water)
A more accurate title listing the discreet topics covered, was initially curious about the fed and our potential economic crises. But that was probably only 20% of book.
Research some of his conspiracies.
You should google Jim Marrs first, to see what to expect and his background.
I keep re listening in amazement if its true we are all screwed
It opened my eyes
Can't pick one
Ya it all scared the crap out of me how's that for movement
Everyone should read thi book
I loved Marrs's treatment of the subprime mortgage crisis and how it ultimately led to the economic unraveling of 2008. He has a good grasp of the problem as well as what kind of policies helped to create it in the first place.
The most compelling argument that Marrs makes is that globalized markets and the move toward global governance present dire threats to U.S. national sovereignty. Global government would drastically reduce the freedoms and the standard of living that Americans have enjoyed up to now.
Very clear and straightforward narration, with correct pronunciation.
I was a little disappointed that Marrs took up time rehashing that old conspiracy-theory chestnut about flouridated water.
I'm not normally a fan of "conspiracy theory" literature, and generally avoid anything that smacks of the tinfoil hat. But I would say that about 80% of the material in here is not really theorizing or speculation, it's actual description and relies for the most part on open sources found in mainstream publications. I will say that although Marrs seems, for the most part, to position himself on the political Right, there are times when he holds wildly contradictory positions that don't make sense ideologically. You simply can't be a libertarian and a protectionist, for example, at the same time.
For the most part, however, this is a very stimulating and fascinating book, if you can simply take about 20% of it with a grain of salt. I listened to the whole thing over a period of two days. It was actually quite addictive.
This book covers quite a bit of ground. I had to take some breaks to process all of the info and do some fact checking here and there. But as a "news junkie" and daily reader of local, national, and international news, I can see Mr. Marrs' claims unfolding!
I was very pleased with the book it was extremely informative the reading was very clear and easy to follow along with.
The Rise of the Fourth Reich. It was by the same author and the same reader I believe again extremely informative about world history and why current events are the way they are.
When you concsider the material covered in the book his being able to correctly pronouce the words and keep everything flowing was very impressive. Unlike a novel with a story line to get into to be able to bring this information to life makes this a very valuable part of my library and much easier to go back to.
Where did all the money go?
Just started with Audibles and my first to books have been very eye opening. I was very glad to see that you carry these and many more books like them.
Jim Marrs continuing effort to reveal conspiracies continues in this volume about today's financial crises. He deals with a broader scope, which includes fluoridation, and other conspiratorial theories he has already proposed. His thoughts are clearly presented and liberally supported by his sources, which cannot be reviewed in a audio version of his work. The stuff real nightmares are made of if it's true.

Jim Marrs book The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy is an award-winning journalist and a shining example of the great lost art of factual journalism in America. He honestly deserves to win a Pulitzer prize for this latest book -- it's really that good. It's also extremely well researched and cited.
This isn't some loose compilation of conjecture or conspiracy rantings; rather, it's a coherent, well-organized presentation of the shocking details of how the world really operates (it's far stranger than you might suppose).
The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy touches on all the big issues and industries of our modern world: War and defense contractors, Big Pharma and the FDA, the fluoridation of the water supply, GMOs and the genetic pollution of our planet, the criminal banking industry and the Federal Reserve, stolen elections, corrupt politicians and a whole lot more.
The title of the book is actually a bit of a misnomer. Jim's original title was going to be "Zombie Nation" which I think is actually a better title because the book talks about "zombie banks" that are steeped in debt, "zombie politicians" who are totally controlled by a corporate agenda, and even "zombie people" who are drugged up on psychiatric medications. If you want to know why the world seems to crazy on the outside, just read this book and you'll gain a keen understanding of the zombification of modern civilization and why it's taking place.
Highly recommended. This book is being given the "Book of the Year Award" from NaturalNews.
At times I thought I'd lost my place and was rehearing material I'd already listened to, but I don't think that was the case. Often the reiteration was helpful, as there were many unfamiliar (to me) terms and acronyms. The author doesn't give acronyms without their meaning, but I find it easy to forget what acronyms stand for. Despite the repetition, usually to reemphasise or add another perspective, I found the book extremely informative, with some sections more interesting than others. It's almost a handbook of sinister developments in the world today and particularly in the USA.
I like Jim Marrs and up until now most of his books. He is also a very good speaker and a thorough investigator however this book falls very short of his usual standards and was a very big disappointment.
Firstly, there was not much new information here that Marrs has not already covered in his other books and secondly he really takes a right-wing libertarian turn that is quite off-putting. His complete loss of journalistic objectivity and preachy agenda promulgated throughout — just made it impossible to listen all the way through. I was looking forward to this book but now I wish I had not purchased it.
The author could have had a winner if he'd written it with journalistic objectivity. He throws out statistics, making simplistic correlations that either defy basic logic or ignore key factors. He clearly has an agenda, and this should have been at least hinted at in the book's description. I felt mislead by the purchase. If your politics are right-wing, you'll probably enjoy this book, otherwise, you'll likely be offended as I was.
