'Monopoly men, the secret life of the federal reserve'
Submitted By Jane Bark
Tri-City Independent Documentary Series continues with a timely film about the crooks in suits in the news: "Monopoly Men, The Secret Life 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? Find out as the connective tissue between this and other secretive international banking institutions is explored and exposed.
Discussion following the film, to be led by Carol Brouillet.
