This is a talk by Helen Hodgson Brown, author of the book "The Web of Debt: The shocking truth about our money system and how we can break free."

It's been translated into Spanish, German, Korean and Swedish.

The bottom line is the power of money creation was taken away from the People (theoretically the government) and given to privately-owned banking institutions.

They literally have a license to print money - and they earn interest on all the money they print. Not a bad business to be in, but catastrophic for a society and its economy.
