"The Money Masters," a documentary on the influence of International Bankers on US Monetary PolicySubmitted by AtlantaIconoclast on Sun, 07/08/2012 - 23:45
Just watched part one, and am fascinated, though surprised by its opposition to a gold standard. Anyone care to share their opinion of it?
It is unusual to find sources so critical of both the Federal Reserve and a Gold Standard.
I am surprised even more though at the paucity of new documentaries on the Fed and the role of central banks in the current economic quagmire. Anyone know of more recent documentaries?
And what do you recommend I watch or read to better understand how a monetary system could work without a central bank?
This documentary discusses the sucess of the old "Colonial Script" and the "Greenback," but I still don't understand how a goverment printed currency works. If the government returned to printing money without having to borrow from a central bank, how is the money doled out to the public? Would banks have to buy this money to then loan to the public? This is still very confusing for me. thanks
