Storyline

The Federal Reserve, or the Fed as it is lovingly called, may be one of the most mysterious entities in modern American government. Created during Wilson's presidency to protect the economy in times of financial turmoil, its real business remains to be discovered. During the Wilson presidency, the U.S. government sanctions the creation of the Federal Reserve. Thought by many to be a government organization maintained to provide financial accountability in the event of a domestic depression, the actual business of the Fed is shrouded in secrecy. Many Americans will be shocked to discover that the principle business of the Fed is to print money from nothing, lend it to the U.S. government and charge interest on these loans. Who keeps the interest? Good question. Find out as the connective tissue between this and other top-secret international organizations is explored and exposed.

    Simply the fact that the Bilderberg group meet for three days every year under complete media blackout says that they have something to hide from the public that the public would most likely benefit from knowing. And if the majority of people knew what they did in these meetings there would most likely be a revolution.

    @ Jules

    Please do not act as if you're reading of a few economics books makes you an expert, and that you have complete knowledge and understanding of the entire system. I am well versed in economics, and the fact is that the Federal Reserve IS a PRIVATE bank, and it is hardly a non-profit organization. As they do not release financial statements (being privately held) it is no simple task to say exactly how profitable the Fed is, or to whom the profits go.

    Our national debt essentially represents our government's debt for printing money. Some of this debt is privately held, by domestic and international investors (such as China, as everyone loves to point out). However, I would point out that the largest portion of this debt is owned by THE FED. This is the most simple transaction for the government to procure dollar bills. You may remember from your education in economics that the Fed controls the money supply partly through buying and selling T-Bills. The government receives US dollars, the Fed receives a Treasury Bill promising future payment of A HIGHER AMOUNT than that which was paid for said T-Bill. Thus, the Fed (and everyone else purchasing T-Bills) does charge interest, and thus does earn a profit.

    To your next ignorant (although you may consider yourself "educated") comment, "Central banks in many countries have been made independent." This is true. This is in large part due to the requirements the IMF imposes on countries that wish to be a part of the international banking community. No independent central bank; no access. Thus, every country on the planet with a central bank can be controlled by it.

    You should ask yourself just one question, Jules Ross. As we understand that the Fed is a private organization (I hope you understand this, as you yourself pointed out that it is independent), would YOU trust a private company to run the economy in the interest of society, and not manipulate it to their own interests?

    Didn't think so. You're welcome for the lesson in economics. Now realize many of the things you took for face value are in fact false. In believing everything you hear in a book or school, YOU have fallen victim to the conspiracy theories. The official story is the conspiracy; we are all searching for the truth. Open your eyes.

    this film is supposed to be a joke but some people seem to be taking it seriously. They must seriously lack any understanding of economics alltogther. Central banks in many countries have been made independent none including the federal reserve is a profit making organisation. The idea is to control the supply of money within an economy interest is charged on government loans as a control mechanism in order to prevent inflation. If people are interested in learning about economics and economic history there are many academic books that can help you develope an understanding. Don't rely on nonsense conspiricie theories to give your understanding.

    Hey it's Cavil from BSG!
    This is a great film. I can't believe how back when this was made they were saying the same thing Alex is telling us. God bless the Oligarchy for starving, stealing, poisoning, lieing to us. I wish I could say that we will rise up and stop them, but once they control the internet and the radio, how can we? How will we organize, through flyers, or by phone? I'm optomistic, but it looks like we're screwed.

  • I could find any to purchase either. The Monopoly Men probably bought them all for firewood.

  • Cathy

    Have tried to purchase this at Amazon.com. They say it is unavailable, don't even list sources for used. They say the producer stopped production/distribution.

    I've done some searches and can't find anyone selling copies, even their own used.

    Does anyone have one or know where this DVD can still be bought?

    Thanks.
