    The creature from Jekyll Island by Griffin.

    Very interesting book on how the Fed came to existence. In 1912 6 powerful bankers spent a long week in Georgia in secrecy. They gave birth to the idea of a semi-governmental and most likely unconstitutional body, the Fed.
    It got a 4.5 stars by reviewers at Amazon:


    Related also interesting material:

    On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON.


    If you wonder what happened to the Congressman later, well, there were 2 attempts on his life, surely coincidence... :)

    An outstanding book for anyone interested in finance, econ, banking.

    Dont read it if you believe in: men, govt benevolence, banks.

    Not a light read. 600+ pages. But well worth your time. Lots of pictures of dead men. As Solomon said nothing new under the sun.

    Some men worship medals. Some worship heroes. And still others God. But they all worship money.
