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.
This book should be required reading for every high school and college student. It should be read back to back with Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States.
I would reccomend this to all my friends. Loved hearing that there is at least one Author who has no fear of writting the truth about the F. R. BANKS
I hate the federal reserve as much as the next libertarian, but Griffin walked right up to the "extreme FED hater" line and put is toe just on the other side. Very interesting thought experience that I thoroughly enjoyed, I'm just not 100% sure his suggestions that he say are happening are actually happening.
It was not enjoyable. It's like eating kale.
Well I would not have read it at all were it not for the narrator. I listen while driving. So the book is what I would not have experienced.
This should be required reading for every human.
