This is one of the most important books of the 21st centuryI say 21st because it is very now in it s significance and will predict the downfall of our current economic systemboth here at home and worldwideIf you have ever wondered what the Fed actually is or why these guys have the power to manipulate rates to maintain stability in our modern economic arena, you need to read this The most eye opening, fact driven read I have encountered in a long time, Griffin s expose on the Fed not only exposes the fraud that was it s creation but the interlacing effects that fundamentally result from this type of fiat money system It is food for thought for any libertarian, a main catalyst for any revolutionary and a major brick in the foundation for any free trade capitalist Absolutely amazing When the essence of a thing is spoiled, nothing good can come of it.Please note that I put the original German text at the end of this review Just if you might be interested.An exciting chronology of events that have influenced, among other things, the lively roller coaster ride of the financial markets before turning into the 90 degree downside for ordinary earners.Suppose a fraudulent heart beating in the center of civilization Each of his heartbeats pumps and poisonous blood into the infinite growing body Since it has run out of real blood for a long time, it splashes and spreads the liquid and The life juice has no nutritional value and can no longer fulfill the promised tasks in the bloated body To grow, it must become a vampire and a parasite It aggressively expands and assimilates anything that cannot escape fast enough Those who live in its sphere of influence are robbed of the fruits of their labor and their lifetime to deceive them with its poisonous blood.In reality, it reads like this wealthy and powerful people meet to perfect the concept of fiat money through national banks Thus they have an unlimited money printing machine with which they can promote or destroy economies, affairs of state and civilizations at will With the instruments of inflation, deflation, interest, debt, stock markets, etc., crises can also be provoked that can become wars Intentionally as speculation or accidentally because one forgot to include the sociological component.From this point of view, it is understandable why the economic history always repeats itself according to the scheme of too fast to newly introduced and overvalued technologies It is wished and wanted that way Moreover, economists and politics are portrayed as incorrigible scapegoats Thus, in the course of railway construction in the 19th century, crazy speculations arose, which were in no way inferior to those of the beginning of automation in the 1930s The consequences are known.The 2008 crisis was not a collapse of much of the financial system, as it did in the collapses of the centuries before However, only the implosion of a facet of a grossly inflated financial moloch The real estate business alone was enough to shake the entire house of cards What is this compared to the world s largest stock exchanges, the leading economies and their sovereign bonds, all sorts of new media, the internet and all kinds of information and data merchants The latter does not provide any significant real value added to the economy or physical products or services produced and endow with trillions on the stock exchanges What if one or of these truly systemically important factors collapse Lifting the gold standard and opening the door to the big bang of brazenly uninhibited central bank printing was another cornerstone of the misery Although not even with 24 7 hot pressing presses one can create the umpteenth digital, fictitious and, never in real money available, values Some genuine physical banknotes against an invincible, towering superiority of fantasy cash produced out of nothing, with no actual values in the background This is our economic system.It is supported by a compliant policy, the premise of which is the unconditional preservation and development of the existing system As a small example, it is advisable to observe the inflation adjusted rise in wages over the last decades If one finds it somewhere first, perhaps the economic Nobel Price beckons.Alternatively, one observes the bargaining and hesitation for every million when it comes to social benefits While hundreds of billions for bank savings, rescue funds, and other stability measures are being secretly granted overnight Highly competent gentlemen, who can also be in the service of the economy, sometimes work out phone book thick, complicated concepts These are submitted to the representatives of the people and must be approved within specific deadlines Otherwise, the collapse threatens.In the spirit of the socialization of losses and the privatization of profits, the perpetrators and profiteers of the debacle are whelmed with cash.Urgently needed tax money for people, the environment, and infrastructure is used as risk capital for the makeshift patchwork of megalomaniacal financial constructs Also, with freshly strengthened main players, the game starts again.It is frowned upon to raise the question whether the social system that has existed for millennia does not present severe design errors as the basis for the current economic system It is equated with nest pollution to name the current form of corporocracy in other names But there would be so many.Wenn der Kern einer Sache faul ist, kann darauf nichts Gutes erwachsen.Eine spannende Chronologie der Ereignisse, die unter anderem die muntere Achterbahnfahrt der Finanzm rkte vor dem Abbiegen in die 90 Grad Abw rtskurse f r Normalverdiener beeinflusst hat Angenommen, im Zentrum einer Zivilisation schl gt ein betr gerisches Herz Jeder seiner Pulsschl ge pumpt mehr und mehr giftiges Blut in den unbegrenzt wachsenden K rper Da ihm das echte Blut schon lange ausgegangen ist, panscht und streckt es die Fl ssigkeit immer mehr Der Lebenssaft hat keinen N hrwert mehr und kann die versprochenen Aufgaben im aufgebl hten K rper nicht mehr wahrnehmen Um weiter wachsen zu k nnen, muss es zu einem Vampir und zu einem Parasiten werden Aggressiv expandiert es und assimiliert alles, was nicht schnell genug fliehen kann Von denen, die in seinem Einflussbereich leben, zehrt es und raubt ihnen die Fr chte ihrer Arbeit und ihre Lebenszeit, um sie mit seinem giftigen Blut zu betr gen.In der Realit t liest es sich so Sehr reiche und m chtige Menschen treffen, um das Konzept des Fiat Money mittels Nationalbanken zur Perfektion zu treiben Damit haben sie eine unlimitierte Gelddruckmaschine, mit der sie Volkswirtschaften, Staatsgesch fte und Zivilisationen nach Belieben f rdern oder zerst ren k nnen Mit den Instrumenten von Inflation, Deflation, Zins, Schulden, B rsen usw lassen sich auch Krisen provozieren, die sich zu Kriegen auswachsen k nnen Absichtlich als Spekulation oder aus Versehen, weil man vergessen hat die soziologische Komponente mit einzubeziehen.Unter dem Gesichtspunkt ist es verst ndlich, warum sich die Wirtschaftsgeschichte nach dem Schema zu schnell zu neu eingef hrter und berbewerteter Technologien immer wiederholt Und konomen und Politik als unbelehrbare S ndenb cke dargestellt werden So kam es im 19 Jahrhundert im Zuge des Eisenbahnbaus zu wahnwitzigen Spekulationen, die denen der beginnenden Automatisierung in den 1930 Jahren um nichts nachstanden Die Konsequenzen sind bekannt Die Krise 2008 war kein Kollaps gro er Teile des Finanzsystems wie bei den Zusammenbr chen in den Jahrhunderten davor Sondern nur die Implosion einer Facette eines ma los aufgeblasenen Finanzmolochs Die Immobiliensparte allein gen gte, das gesamte Kartenhaus ins Wanken zu bringen Was ist diese schon im Vergleich zu den gr ten B rsenpl tzen der Welt, den f hrenden Volkswirtschaften und deren Staatsanleihen, allen Arten von neuen Medien, Internet und allen Spielarten von Informations und Datenh ndlern Letztere erbringen keinerlei nennenswerten realen Mehrwert, Produkte oder Dienstleistungen und dotieren mit Billionen an den B rsen Was ist wenn einer oder mehrere dieser wirklich systemrelevanten Faktoren einknicken Den Goldstandard aufzuheben und damit den Urknall unversch mt enthemmter Notenbankdruckerei T r und Tor zu ffnen war ein weiterer Grundstein der Misere Obwohl sich nicht einmal mit rund um die Uhr hei laufenden Druckerpressen die zigfachen digitalen, fiktiven und niemals in echtem Geld verf gbaren Werte erschaffen lassen Ein realer physischer Geldschein gegen eine unbesiegbare haushohe bermacht von aus dem Nichts, ohne reale Werte im Hintergrund, erschaffenen Fantasiegeldes Das ist unser Wirtschaftssystem.Unterst tzt wird es durch eine willf hrige Politik, deren Pr misse die bedingungslose Erhaltung und Ausbauung des bestehenden Systems ist Als kleines Beispiele sei empfohlen, das inflationsbereinigte Steigen der L hne innerhalb der letzten Jahrzehnte zu beobachten Sofern man es als erster irgendwo findet,winkt vielleicht der Wirtschaftsnobelpreis Oder man beobachtet das Feilschen und Zaudern um jede Million wenn es um Sozialleistungen geht W hrend dreistellige Milliardenbetr ge f r Bankenrettungen, Rettungsschirme und andere Stabilit tsma nahmen geschwind heimlich ber Nacht bewilligt werden Hochkompetente Herren, bei denen es auch Vorkommen kann, dass sie im Dienste der Wirtschaft stehen, arbeiten diese mitunter telefonbuchdicken, komplizierten Konzepte aus Die werden den Volksvertretern vorgelegt und m ssen binnen gewisser Fristen bewilligt werden Denn sonst droht der Kollaps Ganz im Sinne der Sozialisierung der Verluste und der Privatisierung der Gewinne werden den Verursachern und Profiteuren des Debakels Unsummen in den Rachen geworfen Dringend f r Menschen, Umwelt und Infrastruktur ben tigtes Steuergeld wird als Risikokapital zur notd rftigen Flickerei von gr enwahnsinnigen Finanzkonstrukte heran gezogen Und mit frisch gest rkten Hauptakteuren beginnt das Spiel von neuem.Es ist verp nt, die Frage aufzuwerfen, ob das seit Jahrtausenden bestehen Gesellschaftssystem als Grundlage f r das aktuelle Wirtschaftssystem nicht schwere Konstruktionsfehler aufweist Es wird mit Nestbeschmutzung gleichgesetzt, die aktuelle Form von Korporokratie bei anderen Namen zu nennen Aber es w rde so einige geben. I actually wanted to like this book It billed itself as reading like a detective story which it really is But it s all true I honestly wanted to find something good and interesting, especially since I m an economics student But I think it s because I m an economics student that I can t like this book After reading the first few chapters, it s obvious the book is a thinly disguised critique of Keynesian economics Their whole definition of inflation was the Monetarist definition of an excess increase in money supply While I know Classical Monetarist Economists and Keynesian Economists disagree, I wonder why they would go to the extent of hiding this arguement Did they think the reader would accept the arguement easily if it wasn t phrased in a Classical vs Keynesian arguement I think the book would have been a lot better if it was.More importantly, this book purports to explain the American banking system, while somehow connecting it to the rest of the world e.g UK, Europe Even if it was true, and since I m no student of history I have no way of knowing so, I m amazed and horrified at the America centrism in the book Does the world economy really revolve around America to the extent that shadowy financiers would gather round to try and chart it I think the current economic situation proves not It s also clear that the author is pushing an anti socialist agenda, which I find rather fantastic He s gone beyond Revisionist History, into whole new territory But I think, and living outside the US in Asia Singapore to be specific , that America s economic history is plainly capitalist, perhaps too much But no matter what, it s not communist socialist Neither is the UN for that matter The UN may be ineffective since only the Security Council can actually sanction anything and is run by the world power s interest really, veto power , but socialist it is not It s autocratic a few nations that can make key decisions than anything But I may be wrong about the book There could be an excellent arguement in the second half of the book But unfortunately, I couldn t bear to finish reading the book. Every single civilization with a fiat money system has ultimately collapsed, claims Griffin Well guess what Every civilization created by people with two arms and two legs has also collapsed eventually The author is just too bug eyed and ranty for my liking Half way through, I felt like I was trapped in a corner with a Pub Bore It s thought provoking, yes But with regards to the current crisis, issues such as the extreme monetary contraction caused by the Great Panic of 2009, or how an expansion in the money supply can be offset by the VELOCITY of money ie, you print it, but people just stick it under the mattress are glossed over, because they don t fit Griffin s gold obsessive, the Fed will be the end of us outlook And to be honest with you, I m not sure I beleive that people like Ron Paul whom I admire, don t get me wrong or G Edward Griffin would have the balls to simply let the US economy collapse in the immediate term, in an effort to create a gold standard utopia They would bring about anarchy and terrible suffering in the meantime But what do such boring practical considerations matter when you have fear on your side and a convincing sounding argument Having said all that, these are issues worth reading about, and with Ben Bernanke currently busy hitting the oh, what the hell, print another trillion button, this book is worth taking a loook at. This book was given to me by a respected friend who read it several years ago and went out of her way to find me a copy because of its relevance to what is happening in the financial realm now bailouts, massive debt, etc After reading it, I have conflicting opinions Although I am generally very averse to conspiracy theories on any level, I found the premise and information fascinating I still have a healthy skepticism because it is all too possible to distort and manipulate facts to fit any scenario, but I have to admit that based on examples from past history, it seems plausible, if only because those with money and power tend to, at the very least, scratch each others backs I do not dispute that those with the money and power create crises, often times on the global level, in order to profit from both sides Wars, the refusal to pursue alternative energy sources aggressively, etc are just a few examples But I have been hearing about secret societies all my life, so they are not so secret And the conclusion I draw from life experience is that human beings are human beings A cartel may exist but human beings will never be able to completely control the outcomes in a chaotic human world And a sustainable long term plan for global domination seems far fetched to me as those who are living on greed sow the seeds of their own doom and eventually come into conflict with each other Call me naive, but the author did not convince me of a centuries old financial cabal with a coherent dark plan for global domination through a new world order Money will always buy power and power will always control the means to money but I don t believe it s a well conceived sinister plot sadly it s of a commentary on human nature I did thoroughly enjoy the historical aspects of this book, especially the creation of banking as an entity, the explanations of types of money commodity, receipt, fiat, fractional , the sham of the FDIC and reserve funds less than 1% , the Council on Foreign Relations, the imperative of a debt based economy, etc Where he truly lost me was on page 522 with his comments on environmentalism as a substitute for war debt creation I quote It is beyond the scope of this study to prove that currently accepted predictions of environmental doom are based on exaggerated and fraudulent scientific studies But such proof is easily found if one is willing to look at the raw data and the assumptions upon which the projections are based More important, however , is the question of why end of world scenarios based on phony scientific studies or no studies at all are uncritically publicized by the CFR controlled media or why radical environmentalist groups advocating socialist doctrine and anti business programs are lavishly funded by CFR dominated foundations, banks and corporations, the very groups that would appear to have the most to lose It s what people can be made to believe that counts It s not that I don t believe they find ways to profit from this issue, but I don t believe they manufactured environmental issues that don t exist for that purpose You don t need scientific studies to tell you we have actual environmental issues, you only need to be observant of the world in which we are currently living. Every so often I come across a book that for one reason or another I can t bring myself to finish Though this book was one of them, I felt that I owed it to myself, as well as my Goodreads friends, to finish It is a story that needs to be told That being the case, I am breaking this what may be a rather long review into two parts The first paragraph is a concise review that I hope you read, and if you are stimulated to read , then read my review in its entirety.Basically, this story is about the Federal Reserve, which in spite of the name is not part of the government but rather a cartel of bankers They had met in great secrecy on Jekyll Island to formulate plans for yet another attempt to create a central bank, even though earlier attempts failed miserable Through their shenanigans and subterfuge they got the laws passed to allow them to take over the American banking industry Since then these bankers have manipulated the markets through their control of the dollar generating printing presses, in spite of the Constitution stating that only gold and silver can be used as money And they do it for their own good, and in doing so have created wars, recession, depressions, revolutions and even genocide If you read no further than this paragraph, just remember that no bank is too big to fail and the laws allowing the Federal Reserve must be rescinded least we all are someday reduced to nothing than modern day serfs And if you are so na ve to think it can t happen, go visit the poor in their tents or the rich in their doomsday bunkers read castles.This book taught me a lot about history The great banking family of Rothschild were well established in Germany and England They or less ran the bank of England It didn t matter that the English hated Jews, the Rothschilds learned to hid in the limelight and run the banks from the shadows Both Wellington and Napoleon built up their armies with Rothschild gold In time they expanded their operations to America were great fortunes were to be made Did you know that Lincoln, the Great Emancipator, was what we would call a racist today I checked out his speech as mentioned in this book Sure enough, he believed that slaves should be free, but that they were below the white man They shouldn t vote, hold public office, and certainly not intermarry with whites He probably rolled over in his grave when Obama was elected He thought slavery was wrong but that was no reason to take up arms against the South What did matter was that the South wanted to leave the union for economic reasons, mainly for what the banks were doing to them Once the shooting started Lincoln violated the Constitution over and over, yet they still couldn t beat the South The foreign bankers saw an opportunity British troops moved into Canada and French troops were stationed in Mexico They might have moved in to pick up the pieces had not the Russians sent two fleets, one to the Atlantic and the other to the Pacific coasts of the North It was then that Lincoln in a moment of brilliance emancipated the slaves and made the war of succession a crusade Neither the English nor French people would stand for their governments hindering this crusade And from that point the South was doomed.According to the author the bankers care nothing for any country They only care about making money They control the IMF World Bank and freely give out loans knowing they will never be repaid They are only interested in collecting the interest and if the loans go bad the US taxpayer, not the banks, will cover them And it matters not the these loans are often used to enrich dictators rather than help the poor.One of the great evils of the Fed is inflation Politicians want money but are afraid to raise taxes too much so the Fed creates money out of thin air for them and these fiat dollars dilute your buying power Let s see, a Chevy Suburban listed for 4707 in 1975 What do they go for now, 67,900 The Fed creates fiat dollars, that are worthless, so they push legal tender laws to force you to use them I could go on and on and still not give away too many spoilers At this point I will stop I have never felt so passionate about a book or cause in quite a long time Ignore those reviewers who blow it off by using such connotations as conspiracy theories and such Look around you and see if things get better every time the head of the Fed opens their mouth There are NOT enough stars for this book Griffin is a genius This is a 600ish page book, written like a mystery novel not even kidding , and I finished it in two weeks It s a MUST READ for everyone If you weren t a conspiracy theorist or labeled as such Those that know the truth tend to receive that label now days before, you WILL be after you finish The Creature from Jekyll Island Learn about the Rothschilds who control the US, and a good chunk of the world , the Federal Reserve, how money is made, inflation, etc It sounds like a boring economics heavy read, but it s not I ve never taken an economics course past high school, and I understood everything he talked about he makes it very easy to understand, and often repeats a concept a couple of times usually he will refer back to a concept in the last chapter, when discussing something related to it in the next and breaks it all down I cannot recommend this book enough It is essential. An excellent and surprisingly readable book that demystifies the workings of the Federal Reserve aimed at those without a background in finance Griffin describes the process of how the Federal Reserve, a private institution designed and beholden to elite financiers, creates money out of nothing This money is then used for debt fueled government spending and for banks to borrow, invest, and loan for profit He explains how it has been possible for the US government to recently fund trillion dollar wars and bank bailouts without significantly raising taxes This is done by inflating the money supply, which Griffin calls the secret tax Griffin alleges that a money standard based on nothing but government promises encourages unsustainable debt, and is unstable by nature Citing numerous historical precedents, he argues our financial system is certain to eventually collapse on its current course The true nature of our financial system could not be further from a free market, and this book details how many of the strings are covertly pulled Contrary to mainstream news reports of how the wealthy have suffered from this economic downturn, Griffin details how some have profited immensely in the past during recessions, to the point of having manipulated their creation at times He also describes the history of elite financiers secretly encouraging war, funding opposing sides, and gaining extraordinary power and wealth as a result Griffin s background in journalism insures adequate documentation for these controversial claims However, some of his conspiratorial theories, especially in the final chapters covering the New World Order, are difficult to fully accept Abraham Lincoln s oft quoted prophetic warning against corporations which Griffin cites, has for example been soundly discredited by historian Merill Peterson These are minor qualms though, and the main points of Creature offer a valuable perspective for those seeking an understanding of the US financial system not offered by mainstream sources. {READ DOWNLOAD} ⚼ The Creature from Jekyll Island Ø The Quintessential Treatise On Economics Cussed And Discussed By All From Notable Politicians To

Politician Again Or A Banker The combination of central banking and fractional reserve lending whereby banks lend up to 10 times as much money as they actually have in real capital assets has been one of the most destructive forces in western civilization Although declared legal and sanctioned by modern governments, it is inherently fraudulent, and it is the means by which banks and government collude to create virtually unlimited piles of money to fund their projects wars, economic development, profitable loans, etc without raising taxes directly Instead, the citizens pay it all through inflation that insidious, indirect tax that few laymen understand or detect.As one of the back cover blurbs puts it, this book is a murder mystery about the financial murder of the middle class G Edward Griffin takes the reader on a page turning journey through the history of banking and currency, starting with the Roman and Byzantine empires, moving into the British Empire s experience with debasing their money multiple times , and finally into the four different attempts at central banking in the United States, the last of which culminated in the Federal Reserve That insidious and destructive institution turned 100 years old just a few days ago, on December 23rd, 2013.The Federal Reserve System is what allows banks to lend out far beyond their means, with little risk since they know Uncle Sam will bail them out Griffin shows time and time again how banks have been immorally irresponsible with their loan portfolios, yet they continue to prosper at the expense of the American taxpayers through inflation.Every single experiment in fiat currency has been a disaster, wreaking economic havoc on the population at large but leaving the bankers and politicians sharing the profits Griffin details this again and again throughout the last few centuries Take World War I, for example Griffin writes But the greatest source of funding came, as it always does in wartime, not from direct taxes, but from the hidden tax called inflation Between 1915 and 1920, the money supply doubled from 20.6 billion to 39.8 billion Conversely, during World War I, the purchasing power of the currency fell by almost 50% That means American unknowingly paid to the government approximately one half of every dollar that existed And that was in addition to their taxes This massive infusion of money was the product of the Mandrake Mechanism Griffin s term for the Fed s creation of money out of debt manufactured out of thin air and cost nothing to create Yet the banks were able to collect interest on it all The ancient partnership between the political and monetary scientists had performed its mission well 259 60 The history portion of the book 95% is incredibly illuminating and fascinating It s quite fascinating how much of the early political debates in American history were about money policy George Washington warned against fiat money We may one day become a great commercial and flourishing nation But if in the pursuit of the means we should unfortunately stumble again on unfunded paper money or any similar species of fraud, we shall assuredly give a fatal stab to our national credit in its infancy 323.Near the end of the book Griffin starts to get kooky about a supposed global conspiracy and a radical 1960s document that provides a road map to world domination and economic upheaval Especially compared to the rest of the book, the volume and depth of cited materials are conspicuously lacking in this section However, his detailed prescriptions to begin to dig us out of the hole we are in mostly involving paying down debt with fiat money, going back to a gold silver standard, and steadily eroding the suffocating power of central government from our lives are sound, practical, and easy to grab hold of.The I read, the I realize that the Federal Reserve and its destructive shenanigans are behind much of the economic and geopolitical strife of the last 100 years Naturally, Griffin s book is somewhat of an alternate history, but I found it compelling and convincing I will continue to read on this topic, including some contrary views, but Griffin s work is a valuable contribution to the discussion For anyone interested in economic and political justice, this is a must read.
