The Creature from Jekyll Island — A Second Look at the Federal Reserve
Where does money come from and where does it go? Who makes it? What is “fiat money” and why is the eventual collapse of today’s banking system a nearly foregone conclusion? What does ”liquidity” really mean?
If you’re an investor, this book should be at the very top of your reading list.
No discussion of politics or economics is complete until you understand how money really works—and this book lays it out in all its sordid details, starting with the historic creation of the Federal Reserve.
