Format: Hardcover
This book describes the insidious threats undertaken by a select group of moneyed powers to destroy our Constitutional rights given to Congress in the control of money, regulating its value, and the right of the country's money supply belonging to its citizens.
The author does an excellent analysis of the British intent to destroy America's fledgling financial dreams of a money system for the people and created by the people. Through its agents of Jay Cooke & Co., the Rothschilds and the traitorous Senator from Ohio John Sherman (brother of Gen. Wm. T. Sherman) the rise of the national banks and their sole intent to destroy the Constitution by controlling and regulating the supply and value of the country's money. Drawing on numerous 'hidden' sources -- memos, letters, etc. -- the book describes exceedingly well the worst in political and financial corruption encountered in the 19th Century.
This book explains the dialectics of money power eloquently and scholarly. Concentrating mainly on the 19th Century (it is a little weak on the Hamilton, Jefferson and Morris discussions first exposing the differences in financial power prior to 1792 and the discussions in determing what a dollar or 'unit' consists) nevertheless, it rightfully places Andrew Jackson as perhaps the greatest president in exposing the corruption of the (Second) Bank of the United States and the seditious acts of those associated with it (or instance its president Nicholas Biddle, et al.) and most importantly, providing the clarion warning call to all 19th, 20th and 21st Century sons of liberty that giving away the people's control of the money system is the primary constitutional threat to sovereignty this country faces.

"The world is governed by far different personages than what is imagined by those not behind the scenes"--Benjamin Disraeli "Those unaware are unaware of being unaware"--Merrill Jenkins, Monetary Realist.
For nearlyone-half century, the news industry strove to keep us fearful of a being enslaved by a country that we were feeding and financing and this was absurd! President James A. Garfield (1831-1881) stated:"Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all commerce and industry"( including the news industry) He was shot.
It is apparent that the total effort of those in power is to control the volume of money by all means fair and foul so that they will remain our absolute masters. This message concerns the controlling of the volume of money.
There were people who hated the U.S. Constitution as it was being written and there has always been such people since it was ratified over 200 years ago. Congress was granted the power to provide penalties for counterfeiting. Naturally, counterfeiters don't want either interference or penalties. Nevertheless, in the Mint Act of April 2, 1792, Congress provided a penalty of death for officers of the mint who might participate in debasing our gold and silver coinage. This harsh penalty was deemed necessary because those wise men knew that unrestrained counterfeiters could overthrow the republic. Where are we now? FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF RICHMOND, KEYNES ON INFLATION, PG.6 KEYNES IS QUOTED FROM HIS BOOK, ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF PEACE. " LENIN IS SAID TO HAVE DECLARED THAT THE BEST WAY TO DESTROY THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM WAS TO DEBAUCH THE CURRENCY.

Excellent overview of money issues in the 1800s. My history to this point generally goes back to the Federal Reserve. I thought money based on debt and credit and notes was a more recent invention. This books shows that although Jackson succeeded in ending the federal bank in his day, the "national banks" continued to exert influence to the detriment of the common people, in various ways. I'm only half-way through the book.

I gave it only a 3 as it is quite detailed and not easy to read at all points. It would be great if the book could be rewritten, with perhaps some clarifications and judicious editing. As it is, he quotes a fair amount of congressional records and newspapers, which proves (supports) his point. I remember reading that the various bank troubles (i.e., panics) of the 1800s were proof that we needed something like the Federal Reserve. This books clearly (though at times tediously) shows the national banks were the cause of these panics to begin with. To have banks effectively create our money, with a monopoly, with our government backing it, how completely absurd. And it's still being done today.

The Coming Battle tells of the history of the US banking system and the history of the US Dollar. It shows how the national and global economies, politics, mother nature and human nature all conspire to constantly change what we commonly call "money" but what is really a "medium of exchange." The original dollar, grains of silver as defined in the Act to Create the US Mint in 1792, changes form every 20 and 40 years. From silver, to the dual metallic silver and gold to just gold at the time of the book's publication at the end of the 19th century. From a non-credit, paper system in the days of the Articles of Confederation to the non-credit, metallic system to our modern bank-credit based paradigm, our medium of exchange changes regularly and will change again. The 40 years since 1971 and the end of the international gold standard and 1973 when the Saudi's announced that they would only accept US Dollars, thus creating an oil-based dollar, are coming to an end. The US Dollar is destined to change again.
