"Gods of Money" is difficult to put down. Each chapter seems to be more revealing than the next. It begins with a not too distant history that predates the Federal Reserve and traces things up to current times. The book is very enlightening regarding the history of power, the way it evolved and how it continues to influence our lives currently.
Unlike many books (here I don't want to single out any author) that asks open ended questions like "Could the huge drawings at Nazca, Peru that can only be seen from the air be a type of signal for visitors from outer space?" when Engdahl presents events, documents or quotations they are carefully and fully documented at the end of each chapter. If you wish to know more on a particular subject then you simply look up the well documented reference (endnote) at the end of the chapter.
The second Caution would be that if you are not prepared to have an experience similar to what transpires with puppies between week one and week two (their eyes are opened) then you should exercise caution regarding the reading of this book.
Most people think that their lives are like a particle in a Brownian movement, buffeted all around by the vicissitudes of life. When you read this book you will understand that life is not like this at all. There are powerful forces that are truly in control just not overt or blatant.
Think for a moment would you ever have believed that we would take $700 Billion of taxpayer's money and bailout Wall Street? It has been said many times that this is "Privatizing the Profits and Socializing the Debt" and to top it all off none of the money was used to buy "Troubled Assets!" They are still on the books. As William Engdahl says in his forward this is not a book to address these financial events, it is a book about Power. I make this point to emphasize that it took a lot of power to make this happen when so much of the public was against it.
So if you have read this far in this review click on the link above to order the book, I promise you will not be disappointed.
If you wonder why we have been a Nation at war for 224 of our 242 year existence, you learn and will be astounded by explanations of how whole nations and their governments are manipulated into "joining the chorus" of the warmongers who are the installations of the Oligarchy Money Trust (also known, now, as the deep state, using the media (they're not your friend) to form "Public Opinion"- the title of another albeit difficult to read book showing the history of how the public, here and abroad, have been duped by their "trusted" Main Stream Media.
Engdall takes the reader along that 242 years timline of U.S. Histroy, exposing the The Money Trust and their designs that have nothing to do with the U.S. other than use it as a vehicle with which to conquer the World with total disregard for the people of the United States or their welfare. Within the U.S., England, and Europe, this group of ultra wealthy policy makers, like the Rothschild Family in Europe, J.P. Morgan and the Rockefeller Family in the West, who openly or coercively "installed" their chosen politicians and economists into government positions in order to carry out their "American Century"- the rape of the world's resources, not for the benefit of the U.S., but for the benefit of themselves and their enormous wealth, at ALL costs.
Also explained are the mechanizations of the intelligence and congressional areas of government as well as the Main Stream Media, all working in consort, sometimes clandestinely to control the public opinion, while they work their efforts to expand the American Empire and such resources from any country that has them. This strategy of Worldwide Hegemony(one State's power over another), referred to as The American Century, is the game plan with no regard to morals or humanity. You may prefer to not read the book and just keep your head in the sand. While you do either, our national debt and taxation skyrocket, not to your benefit but to those at the top...not for your benefit but, for the funding of the Military Industrial Intelligence Complex (MIIC) that sucks 60%+ of our national budget, every year (again, not for our benefit as a nation, but to add to their enormous wealth.
The book continues, explaining the inner workings of the Ponzi Scheme Wall Street that is another vehicle that is used to extract even more money from the hard working Americans that want to "invest for the future." Their boom/bust controls have made life miserable for a great many people and it wasn't an accident that took place in 1929 or 1987, or 2008.
You'll get angry and you'll be educated and, again, this is NOT a Conspiracy Theory Tale. This is fact with footnotes.
"Gods of Money", shows that this corrupt system has been around for a long time and its existance cannot be justified by the day dreams of mythologists like Ayn Rand, or snake oil salesmen like Limburger.
I would only hope that this book sheds enough light on our hypocracies that the younger generation can use that light to reveal the path to true government of, by, and for the People of the United States.
