Publisher's Summary

Exploding the myths about money

Our money system is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been "privatized", or taken over by a private money cartel. Except for coins, all of our money is now created as loans advanced by private banking institutions - including the private Federal Reserve. Banks create the principal but not the interest to service their loans. To find the interest, new loans must continually be taken out, expanding the money supply, inflating prices, and robbing you of the value of your money.

Web of Debt unravels the deception and presents a crystal clear picture of the financial abyss toward which we are heading. Then, it explores a workable alternative, one that was tested in Colonial America and is grounded in the best of American economic thought, including the writings of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.

If you care about financial security, your own or the nation's, you should listen to this audiobook.

Great Work Undermined

I read this book last year - and I mean the actual book. As in, I turned real pages. It amuses me to see audible reviewers claiming things like "best book I've read all year" or "likely won't read it again." Imagine a preschooler telling his teacher, "I read 'Jack and the Beanstalk' last night." Ok, so Mom read it to him.
I digress. This is a great book. Brown does an outstanding job wading through centuries of propaganda to expose the real history. The research is outstanding. I actually bought multiple copies of this book to pass on to friends.
It would've been an excellent audible title but for two very unfortunate issues. The narrator mispronounces extremely common words. eg, "scarce" pronounced like "farce" - and "scarce" appears often describing tightening of money supply. Also, and not the narrator's fault assuming he wasn't the editor, is the fact parts of the audiobook went unedited. Starting a few hours in, one hears the narrator stumble, sigh, clear his throat, and repeat the line. This happens over and over. I assume it was rushed. The narrator does have a pleasant voice.

Better editor

The subject matter and it's handling was performed very well. However, many times the narrator repeated previous sentences and vocalized frustration with the previous reading.

The Web of Debt, a thorough look of our world!

It was fun for me to listen to this multiple times. Why isn't this in school? ;)

The ideas are an excellent depiction of how our culture is run and opens up the conversation to grow from. Will we create a sexy future?  


The narrator has an exquisite performance.
