New Federal Reserve Documentary in Theaters: Money For Nothing

Has anybody seen this film yet? It looks like it was just released. I feel a bit skeptical about it based upon early reviews and the Hollywood influence. From what I have read, the filmmaker doesn't take Ron Paul's position but rather believes that the system can be fixed.

Money For Nothing:Inside The Federal Reserve
Director: Jim Bruce
Narrated by Liev Schreiber

From the official website: "MONEY FOR NOTHING is a feature-length documentary about the Federal Reserve - made by a Team of AFI, Sundance, and Academy Award winners – that seeks to unveil America’s central bank and its impact on our economy and our society.

Current and former top economists, financial historians, and investors and traders provide unprecedented access and take viewers behind the curtain to debate the future of the world’s most powerful financial institution."

Yup, mistake was made. December 1913.

Federal Reserve has been increasing the money supply for nearly 100 years at a rate of about 7.5% a year.

This inflation of the currency supply is a hidden tax that has been picking the pockets of four generations.

This thing is going to be another white wash

Just like “Too big To Fail”. Just this one statement is enough for me to know that the producers don’t get it. Around the 2:12 mark of the trailer Barry Ritholtz states “a healthy economy in when people earn money and goes out and spends it, a unhealthy economy is when they borrow money and spends it” that is just Keynesian hog wash. “A healthy economy is people earning money, save it and lending it out to others that want to investment in capital formation that contributes to an increases in productive capacity of the economy and this increases wealth……period”. If consumption was the engine of growth how come every country isn’t wealthy……all of them can print money and spend it.

I will say the last few seconds provides a glimmer of hope with what Jim Grants states.

If you want to see a movie that is the closest to the truth watch about the 2008 crisis… “Inside Job”. It lays the responsibility at the feet of the USG…….where it belongs.

If you go and spend your money on this movie thats what you will get.......they will get your money for nothing.

Good analysis, Goldspan. I

Good analysis, Goldspan. I got the same impression. Agree that "Inside Job" was well done. Your last comment sums it all up.

Bump

for the truth.....
