This classic expose of the Fed has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story - which it really is, but it's all true.
This book is about the most blatant scam of history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Your world view will definitely change. Putting it quite simply, this may be the most important book on world affairs you will ever read.
The 5th Edition includes a no-holds barred analysis of bank bailouts under the Bush and Obama Administrations that are shown to be nothing less than legalized plunder of the American people. Many other updates have been added, including a revision to the list of those who attended the historic meeting at Jekyll Island, where the Federal Reserve was created.

This book should be read by everyone, especially those with complacent socialist leanings. It is well documented, and forecasts a grim future unless there is a major change in our culture. It outlines very well how "1984" is coming to pass.
The trip into the future taken in the last chapter…
And in earlier chapters learning that money not politics controls the world.
This is not a book of characters being performed, it's a nonfiction about global control
It took me three days nonstop listening to complete this book
What draws us to the books we read? I have heard the Federal Reserve mentioned in other books, a paragraph here a chapter there. I only wanted to learn a little more about the federal reserve, but what I got instead was Morphious offering me the red or blue pill in the form of this fantastic book. If you choose the red pill and read this book, you will never see money the same way again.
I was expecting a simple book about bankers meeting in secret on an island, and what I got was so much more. This book takes us back into history, brings us up to present date, and my favorite part, A trip into the future that we can all see has already begun just by reading today's newspaper headlines.
I have to say that when I finished this book I no longer saw the world the same… I see it now as a much scarier place!
I do not have time to read whole volumes anymore. As the owner of a manufacturing plant, I choose to listen to books in my car and at work instead.
Ruskin/Rhodes and the formation of a world wide secret society for the purpose of total financial control of the world's finances.
Smooth voice inflexion.
I would love to, but 24 hours is a long time to listen in one sitting. You need time to digest, and even go back to listen and take notes as necessary.
Everyone should read this and absorb the significance of what is being put forward as the basis for this country's "wealth" and how the world might progress toward a "one world currency", irrespective of religious beliefs or suspicions.
An amazing comprehensive argument for the elimination of the federal reserve. Anyone interested in freedom should immediately educate themselves on the enemy.
Yes, all friends. It's one of the most powerful books I've come across.
The truth through history.
He was amazing, perfect pitch, sound and delivery.
The creation of money out of thin air by the banks. This money is then given to the government at an interest rate, which the tax payers pay back. This benefits the banks, the government and the people employed by the government, everyone else is left high and dry though every higher and higher tax rates.
Why weren't we taught this in school?? Maybe because the schools are run by the same people who steal your hard earned money though taxes and inflation then to say they need more, like a drug addict who has yet to admit they have a problem.
The author revisits the same events over to the point of exhaustion, I've read and heard the Jekyll Island story a few different times but this was a fantastic effort to kill the story, almost as if the perpetrators came back to life as the author & narrator and didn't want people to be able to endure the boredom to learn of their betrayal
A trigonometry text book
More emotion and perhaps a little suspense on parts supposed to be exciting instead of the same monotone torcher
The only disappointing audible book I've experienced thus far and hope I never have an experience like this one again
would love to exchange this for another, even a much cheaper book but seems impossible to do or not as easy as advertised
I was taken in from the beginning. This is a significant work of sourced material that should be a must read for anyone involved in business or cares about what your money is really worth.
The historical and global "connections" are quite astounding.
This really does not apply to this work of nonfiction.
This book had such a significant impact on me that I purchased the hard copy so that I could have the footnotes and sources.
This book probably requires at least a basic understanding of economics and some banking.
I will get everyone I know to read this book. It has already spurred me into doing my own research before I even finished the book. This is a must read/listen.
