Format: Paperback
The original text for this serious tract was written in 1941 and updated three more times in 1961, 1976 and 1987. Thus, it details, for example, information regarding the exploding national debt as late as 1959 when it was $281 billion (whereas in 1941, the national debt was only $50 billion) (and today it is $11.4 trillion, $38,000 for each and every American). It also details how farmers were paid by the bankers in 1937 and 1938 to destroy crops, such as grapes (in California), melons, oranges and peaches -- while people were starving in the Great Depression -- so that profits would increase. Sound familiar? Is history so different from our present?

This 110-page tract of only 10 short chapters is not an easy read because it is downright serious, and the facts it presents, particularly in the context of the "financial crisis" of 2009, show very little has changed over time in regard to the Federal Reserve Bank's malevolent influence on the United States economy. It analyzes well and thoroughly the complete fiction behind fractional reserve banking and how money is actually "created" out of nothing.

Even if you're acquainted with the history of banking and taxation, have read G. Edward Griffin's book "The Creature from Jekyll Island" or are familiar with Eustace Mullins' "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve," you will want to read this book, however painful, for its clear-sightedness, passion, and astute reasoning.

Why, the author asks, do we Americans still allow the Federal Reserve Bank to rule our economy when we have Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution to guide us? While the author attempts to answer this question within the book, the question is still ours today -- and goes, sadly, still unanswered.
