America's economy is in shambles. . . .
Its citizens are terrified and dissatisfied. . . .
Could it all have been planned by a secret elite one hundred years ago?
The New World Order. Hitler referred to it in his diaries. President George H. W. Bush foretold of it in his speeches. Formed by a secretive global elite, the group seeking this new order has taken hold of the nation and perhaps the world. Its influence pervades every reach of American society, from the products we buy at the grocery store to the topics of evening news programs.
But could it also be true that the New World Order caused one of the greatest financial catastrophes of our time?
For years, best-selling author and legendary conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs has exposed information that the mainstream corporate media has refused to report. Now, with a crisis upon us, Marrs has yet again unearthed the lies to expose the insidious alliances that make up a secret world.
Consider this: In 1910, a handful of the world's most powerful government and corporate men gathered on Jekyll Island to discuss matters at a private hunting lodge. The agenda? First, the overthrow of the sitting American president; second, the creation of a central bank, one headed by a succession of elitists who would unconstitutionally control America's money and its economy for decades. . . .
Flash forward one hundred years. Never before have the American people been so unhappy. Apathy and paralysis are the nation's guiding principles. Public education has repeatedly failed. More and more Americans rely on overpriced pills for remedies to fabricated illnesses. The average American household spends eight hours a day in front of the television, ruled by the vague fears of terrorist attacks and economic collapse. Control of the mass media has devolved to a mere five multinational corporations.

The is book is excellent at connecting the dots and makes sense. I just pray that the dots don't exist. All of the facts that I checked turned out to be correct and disturbing so that parts is true. It is right wing and one of the few books that I have ever recommended to anyone. It's not a waste of time.
I enjoyed this audio book very much. While there are many points I take issue with, I regard the book highly. It was clear, concise and insightful. The explanations about complex matters were very good. I have a far better grasp on some of the more complex systems in place in our government than previously. Regardless of whether one agrees with the author on some of the conclusions drawn or not, the explanations, history and evolution are thoughtful and stunning. I will listen to this one again.
The history of the inevitable failures of "central banks" dating to the 16th c. is analyzed with binding speed and clarity, more importantly, proof is offered for every fact asserted.
To the extent that author Marrs was writing on information and belief, as I believe he did in hi THEE RISE OF THE FOURTH REICH, another fantastic audible.com selection, it comes right down to one assertion, as was so memorably spoken to Tom Cruise by Jack Nicholson to Tom Cruise: "*you can't *handle* the truth."
Jim Marrs is saying: I am telling you the truth, but most people *cannot handle it* - and candidly, by 1/5 of the way through my head was spinning.
I'm sure there are many who feel the same but do not want their identity connected to this work of boldness.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
This book is scary but it is accurate. I've been investigating these things on my own for years and have found that Mr. Mars has put it all together and is well documented. If you want to know your future and the future of your children and their children I HIGHLY suggest you listen to this book. The entire book!
Very well done and the narration is as good as the book.
A must read/listen!
Jim Marrs makes some very strong points that can be scary! I think that is why most people will cast him off as a nut job.
There is something going on in our country and if the American people do not wake up and educate themselves they will fall prey.
Don't wait to be spoon fed by the media. Our news organizations are lap-dogs for the government rather than watch-dogs.
Listen.....Study.....and decide for yourself.
The best part is realizing that there are still a few people left on this earth that know and understand that compassion is the sum of every intelligence and Mr. Marrs is one of those people.
It reads like one long scathing indictment after another, with the same people behind it all. And it's a wonder how Mr. Pruden remains so calm instead of shouting.
This is a must read for every concerned American Citizen. The author presents facts and information straight forward and lets the reader draw their own conclusion. I recomended this book to everyone I know. I will never look at banks, drug companies, and even the government in the same way.
Yes. Jim Marrs is very knowledgeable on anything conspiracy theory. On top of that, he gives very comprehensive explanation of the current state of the american economy and government. He does a very good job not showing any political partisan because he believes everyone is to blame. This book will change the way you look at current american politics and gives you ways in which you can change your own life to be less venerable. I suggest this book to everyone.
Definitely not a 'crazy conspiracy theorist' book. Doesn't go off the deep-end with things. A lot of facts and things to think about seriously. Great material, and unfortunately a lot of it is true. He quotes Peter Schiff and Chris Martenson, among many other credible sources.
The author has a fundamental flaw in his understanding of socialism. He constantly speaks of an evil conglomerate to install socialism (guess the #1 human development index countries in the world, the socialist Nordics are having a nightmare in their "everybody chips in for society's sake and well being hell) when the term should have been totalitarianism or corporativism... or totalitarian corporativist regime. Something of the sorts... I am having a hard time to finish this book because of this and some other key conceptual errors, or horrors I would say.
No, I doubt it, even though I agree a lot with mainstream conspiracy theories I doubt I will waste my time with his work again.
The narrator is amazingly good, 5 stars
Ban Jim Mars from my list... if you can't get a concept as simple and widespread as socialism differentiated from totalitarianism then there is little hope for an interesting or worthwhile book.
This book showed promise but did not deliver. Also most of the initial chapters are common knowledge and simple to get info on decent well documented pages in the web.
