This is a very important MUST READ book for everyone. There are two types of people. Those that are clueless about the Federal Reserve and those that have done some homework and now understand the Federal Reserve. The latter is very easy to spot because they are the ones that want it shut down and ended. Edward Griffin writes a wonderful book that can open your eyes to the fraud they call The Federal Reserve. He writes clearly and in a fashion that you will become absorbed and have trouble putting this book down. The original came out in mid 1990’s. Make sure you buy the 5th edition with updated sections on the recent TARP fiasco and financial disaster unfolding in front of our eyes now. Even in the latest edition he points out a chapter or two that were left completely unedited from the original book. Those chapters predict the financial fiasco we have been experiencing since 2008 very precisely. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Rush out and buy it now!
