Reflections on Power and Global Finance

In this documentary “Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve”(2014), author James Corbett provides an extremely stimulating picture of the history and influence of the US Federal Reserve and of the larger relationship between Power and Global Finance.

Some of the important questions answered by this insightful documentary include:

1) Where does money come from? (you may be surprised to find out that you don’t really know the right answer to this) How is money dispersed? What factors come into play when determining its value?

2) Who decides the US monetary policy? (no, it’s not the US government)

3) Are alternative scenarios possible?

As any documentary of the kind, this one also advances a particular point of view that can or cannot be shared, however some of the facts presented offer an invaluable opportunity to better understanding and thinking about the world we live in.
