Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth about Our Money System--the Sleight of Hand that Has Trapped Us in Debt and how We Can Break Free
This book exposes important, often obscured truths about our money system and our economic past and future. Our money is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been "privatized," or taken over by a private money cartel. It is all done by sleight of hand, concealed by economic double-speak. "Web of Debt" unravels the deception and presents a crystal clear picture of the financial abyss towards which we are heading, pointing out all the signposts. Then it explores a workable alternative, one that was tested in colonial America and is grounded in the best of American economic thought, including the writings of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. If you care about financial security, your own or the nation's, you should read this book. Ellen Brown has applied her training as a litigating attorney, researcher and writer to the monetary field, unearthing facts that even the majority of banking and financial experts ignore: ranging from the privatization of money creation, to the Plunge Protection Team, to the Federal Reserve's 'Helicopter Money. Read it; you'll get information you need in order to understand what is going on in our financial markets today. Bernard Lietaer, former European central banker, author of "The Future of Money" and "Of Human Wealth" .
