The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve
by G. Edward Griffin
This book is about the most blatant scam of all history. It’s all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Creature from Jekyll Island is a “must read.” Your world view will definitely change. You’ll never trust a politician again – or a banker.
Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magicians’ secrets are unveiled. We get a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, their pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A dry and boring subject? Just wait! You’ll be hooked in five minutes. Reads like a detective story – which it really is. But it’s all true.

Who finances wars
As a former ex-USSR citizen, I always wondered why wars were fought. Every molecule of my brain refused to believe that people did it for pure altruistic and patriotic reasons. This book puts it right:
* Why America fought in WW1
* Why Russian revolutions occurred and who benefited from those
* Why people in other countries are so gullible when receiving foreign aid.
* How the large bankers took advantage of those countries by legalizing smuggling, just for them, not the common folk
And most importantly:
* How the common US folk is paying for all of it out of its own pocket through the hidden tax of inflation.
A true eye opener. Gotta love America for letting a writer publish such an indispensable journey into history political deceit. Other countries like Russia would have probably made the author disappear, the way it has always been done.
A word of caution:
This book may make you angry. However please do understand that everything it talks about happened, happens, and will continue to happen so long as the earth is populated. Just accept it and find a way to be prepared for the future, as the past always repeats itself.
Every American Citizen should be required to read this book before voting for political candidates REGARDLESS of their political leanings. The wool has been pulled over the eyes of the populace by the puppet masters that control the vast resources of the biggest CARTEL in the history of the world. You will never look at, read or listen to a Talking Head in the same manner again. Very readable and a marvelous reference book to the deliberately fuzzy dealings of the quasi-criminal Cartel we know as the Federal Reserve System.
This book, while slightly marred by the occasional conspiracy theory, is a great account of one of the most important real life conspiracies of our time. It is well researched with plenty of footnotes for anyone who wants to look more deeply. It tells the real story of how bankers have lured politicians with easy money and ended up in control of most of the world. Whether or not they can keep up our (or rather, their) sleight-of-hand monetary system forever, the important thing is the power these bankers wield that should not be theirs. This book should be required reading. And by all means do your own research. Topics covered: founding of the Federal Reserve, war mongering, bail-outs, boom-bust cycles, the J.P.Morgans and Rothschilds of the world, the history of central banking in the United States, and most fascinating: how the money system really works in this country. Despite its lack of perfection, this book is by far the most relevant and interesting thing I have read about economics in a long time. It is written in terms that anyone can understand, which will immediately rule out the kind of reader who is impressed by a lot of technical jargon that supposedly demonstrates an author’s mastery of the subject while only serving to confuse laymen (and experts too).
