The Money Masters - Part 1 of 2

The Money Masters - Part 1 of 2

The Money Masters the documentary discuss the topics of money (as it relates to central banking and fractional reserve banking), debt, taxes and their development throughout the modern world.


[edit] Private central banking and fractional reserve banking
The documentary criticises the control aspects of modern centralized banking systems and regulation. The film uses as evidence the history of money and banking, showing the viewer how central banks came to be what they are today, and how they operate. It supports its assertions by references and quotations from past Presidents and major players in the banking industry.


[edit] Media control
The film contends that by the end of World War I private central banks owned and controlled much of America's large media, paper and film outlets, and that they achieved this through the large consolidation of wealth generated by Fractional-reserve banking and later a fractional based finance system. The film contends this alleged near-monopoly of the financial system goes largely unnoticed or redacted from the human history because of the control of human information exchange through this mainstream media ownership.


[edit] Tax
The film touches briefly on the U.S. Federal income tax. See also Tax protester constitutional arguments.


[edit] Monetary Reform Act
By way of conclusion, the film presents an option for a different kind of monetary policy for the United States of America.
