IF WE WANT TO PUT PEOPLE before profits, WE MUST INSTALL A POPULIST PARTY.  Only through a populist party will the people have a voice—like those in some South American countries, and we must have a bottom-up system with the ordinary man has a decisive voice in the political-economic processes and workplace.  We have a corporatist state with the financial sector as shadow government which is buying up our industries with fiat currency.  We need a media that isn’t a business, but one that promotes knowledge and higher consciousness.  We have a corporatist state with a corporate media making us dumb enough to vote for the corporate parties.     


Note: I have included a number of videos by Economics Explained, which are strong on the basic, however, weak on Keynesian economic and socialism to the point of deceptively ignoring them while promoting neoliberalism, more accurately called neoconservatism in other nations.

1.  Financialization and Shadow Banking


Financial sector controlling currency is a power above nations!


Where does all the fiat money go?   Shadow banking and in purchasing industries by their affiliates.  This financial world that goes unnoticed on YouTube, corporate media, and Wikipedia’s articles are weak.


Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes it laws.  Mayer Amsheel Rothschild (founder)  


** Teddy Roosevelt's advice that, "We must drive the special interests out of politics. The citizens of the United States must effectively control the mighty commercial forces which they have themselves called into being. There can be no effective control of corporations while their political activity remains."  In 1912 he ran as the Populist candidates for President. 


 


The fact-free lockdown hysteria, 53 min, 783,522 in 2 weeks, Thomas E Woods, Jr. on exaggerated claims of deaths and real costs of lock down.  WHO in April predicts 42-66 million less children from increased poverty and deaths from starvation.  Logical, but misses 1) false positive, counting those without symptoms who are immune to COVID; 2) Compares to yearly flu pandemic, there is no increased in deaths, just shift from other causes, 3) hospitals have a $13,500 Medicare incentive for positive tests of patients, 4) no warning for elderly to stop taking drugs that lower immune response, including statins, alpha & beta blocker, neuroleptics, immunosuppressants https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RDffMCAujg good  Though not asked by Woods, a libertarian, it is clear that only the financial sector would orchestrate a global great depression based on a RNA virus no more deadly than the yearly winter influenza pandemic.  Every 8 to 12 years there is an economic downturn with an increase in government debt which financial sector uses as assets for their fractional reserves.  For every billion bank by of debt, US create 10 billion in digital currency—probably a higher rate. There are talking points, and the Money Masters and Secret of Oz #3, on our national bank.


Why Banks are rushing to shadow lenders for help. 4 min, 9,200 view in 7 months, Bloomberg interview. Two major points, industries like food, airline, are going to banks and getting a line of credit, interest rates are 15% and higher, the 4 major banks listed each have over $400 billion in reserves; with fractional reserve it entails trillions in loans.  Put the two together, and the crash will make the banks incredible profits, and it keeps the currency expansion through government debt, the $600 trillion shadow banking market (on 10% assents) afloat.  The hidden world that shapes economics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGzN43Clbis good


How the Economic Machine Works, 31 minutes 24,813,000 views, 2013, Ray Dalio, good on basics but flawed in two major ways.  First the cycles are not created by consumer credit, but the major financial organizations, which profits from recessions and depressions for increasing their profits by increasing debt (credit).  Second the total debt is over 90% in the financial sector, not the consumer’s debt.  Worth watching, but it puts lipstick on the financial pig, misses the banksters, monopoly capitalism, human value incentive, neoliberalism—self managed capitalism.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGzN43Clbis good.  


How is money created? Everything you need to know, 30 min, 2,394,000, Cold fusion TV, a good neutral explanation of banking, and what happened in 2008 bail out.  Missing is the 27 trillion-dollar US guarantee to float the shadow banking, which supposedly added another $4 trillion in federal debt.  Numbers on Federal debt are about 1/5th the actual debt.  Other than that, it is well done including on how banks create currency and buy up assets. Defends the need for a central bank, rather than government to issue currency   Quality sound and video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzoX7zEZ6h4 Very Good  also at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzoX7zEZ6h4&t=4s    6/8/20

The financial center is moving to the orient gradually where the money is.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


To understand the financial world and its control over events, one must connect fiat currency, globalization, shadow banking, a unified financial sector, & monopoly capitalism.


These International bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to club into submission or rive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government -- Theodore Roosevelt, New York Times,

***** War by Other Means—IMF, World Bank are Weapons of War, 52 min, 250,000 views, John Pilger (British documentary maker), explains economic imperials that burden 3rd world nations with loans whose interest payments suck up dry the economy.  They then crash the economy, buy the nations assets at fire-sale prices, and make more loans after forcing the nation to install austerity programs that close hospitals to ensure that the nation can continue paying interest on all its loans.  In the Philippines 44% of gov. expenses go as interest payments (in US federal $850 billion). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lY2rd2295hw  Excellent

United We Fall, 123 min, on joining Canada, U.S. and Mexico into one government, well-made but only once mentions the Federal reserve and the power to issue currency as the power to control nations, and it does.   Portrays the people and governments as being above finance; they aren’t. Way too much interviews, piece-meal development with rebuttals, the pieces are scattered, another example of dumbing down and creating confusion, boring  https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/united-we-fall/   so-so

*****There is no free press under capitalism by Lucretia Report, 11 minutes.  The scandal orchestrated by the right-wing party leader of Austrian who through fake polls and news the party won the election and he became Prime Minister.  This method of operation is common, examples given, the conclusion is that the capitalist media has an agenda of profits first.  Though we all know this, using advertising techniques they seduce the majority of the populace to vote for the corporatist parties, take drugs, buy cars, drink beer, go to war, support globalization, the corporate honor system neoconservatism, etc.  Welcome to 1984 (Orwellian) as it is matures  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWJFwJzKGbs EXCELLENT

3.  Banking’s Economics, Fiat Currency and History


Four common errors, 1) when money flows into a bank from loans (including from the central bank) or from deposits, it is used as an asset to meet their requirement for assets, and then loaned out at least 10-fold greater amount—fractional reserve.  2) the GDP’s service sector includes the parasitic financial sector, which has grown from 5% of service to over 60% and healthcare is an additional 20%.  3) most of the loans goes to affiliates such as Blackrock which the banks own.  4) one of main investments is in stocks which allows the affiliates to control most of the corporations without exposing the role of the banks and its profits. 


***** The secret of Oz 117 minutes, over 1 million views 2010, narrated and written by Bill Stills, winner of best documentary in 2010.  Essentially the same as the Money Masters, with less details, and a better-quality video.  Exposes that the financial sector of our economy as the shadow government dictating global policies, the force behind globalizations, global and local economic crashes, and most wars.  The power to crash an economy by tightening credit is the club.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjGyjUfDoN4&t=1492s


***** How the hell does our banking system works, 12 min, 55,000 view Richard Wolff on Thom Hartmann Show.  Covers the essentials on creating money on faith, federal reserve, etc.  The power to controls gov. is through the crash, Alternative of fiat currency https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQN1ACDr-hQ Excellent  Wolf skips shadow banking, the profits made by banking, and they’re the power above government


***** The Money Masters 217 min, seen by 10s of millions, 1995, Bill Stills, a Libertarian account of the banking system.  I have spent hours confirming the suspect points of the film.  It was carried on independent PBS station in 2002 and in 2008.  Strong on history and education, it shows how the financial system functions to maximize profits, while pretending to provide essential services, and in so doing controls the economy.  The federal banks have the power to crash an economy through controlling the demand for federal debt obligations (mostly T-bills), this entails that they are above control.  The solution is to go from a debt-based currency (debt to national banks and member banks) to a fiat currency issued by government and free of interest payments.  Currently over $800 billion per year is paid on interest by the US government, plus a similar amount by states and local governments, and again by businesses and citizens. Over 50% of GDP consists of the financial sector. The film covers consequences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t0CkzD-Bv8.  Notes on film at http://www.skeptically.org/bhe/id3.html.   What the rulers hide, A must see   


Money as Debt, 42 min, 499,000 views, clearly explains the way money is created out of fractional deposit system in which the banks typically have 10% assets to issue a line of credit over 10-fold the amount deposited.  Though in cartoon form, it clearly explains the process starting with the money changers in Roman times.  Underscores the need for fiat money backed by the government with no debt payments. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqvKjsIxT_8   very good


How The Federal Reserve Works (and Who Really Owns it) 10 Min Business Casual, the history of national banking, the events leading up to the 1913 passage establishing the Federal Reserve Banks (12 regionals).  It is very accurate historically and slanted, excludes the negative evidence, all left out.  Explains also how the bank works and its profits, misses its affiliates such as Blackrock profits.  Very informative sales pitch that should be watched to learn about banks and history https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y0I-vVLBVQ Good


***** It’s our money anyway 8 min, 10,000 views, James Robertson on reclaiming on money and democratize our banking system, that way the government when it made loans would profit from it; thereby lowering taxes, and they should also tax the land/building and removal of resources from the land since both should be part of the public domain.  Very professional done, all the key points 2009. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHs9xnuxLhU  Excellent


 


*****97% Owned: the cruel truth behind money credit and financial, 104 min, ENDEVER, Free Documentary, UK, on creating money (UK) and its national and international consequences, before 1844 private banks created debt based currency back by precious metals, now it is the national bank and without an asset requirement (the same in the US since 1971, requirement not enforced since 1914. then removed), the national bank loans it to the private banks that then expand debt.  They have a reserve requirement enforced.  Trillions flow into the market now.A carefully structured lesson, quality sound based on book Where does money come from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7-FmAfxMmQ Excellent  .   


 


**** Who controls all of our money? 22 min 5.28 M Cold Fusion TV, history of forming national bank, and who wrote it, its sales pitch. Top quality, not hedging fiat currency by Fed Reserve, and 10% on banks (which isn’t being enforced). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQUhJTxK5mA    Excellent


 


Panic: The Untold Story of the 2008 Financial Crisis | Full VICE Special Report | HBO, 96 min 5,255,000, As expected given who speaks, all the big wigs from Presidents to President of the Federal Reserve, and 2 dozen others.  It is all about saving the banking structure, with the only fault is the housing bubble, with no fixes; a continuation of the corporate honor system (neoliberalism).  Very good on sound, pictures, but void of fixing the parasitic system, just preserving it by its high priests.  There is no free lunch, the cost of Wall Street, finances, etc. all paid for by labor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QozGSS7QY_U  History, insider, sucks


 


4. Politics Including Foreign Policy


***** The Shock Doctrine—The Harm of Capitalism, 79 min. 20,000 views, 2012; based on Naomi Klein’s book by that name.  It is about how unregulated capitalism uses adversity (shock) to dismantle government regulations and privatizing public services.  Neoliberal US government is preparing for an economic crash through what Klein calls the Pinochet (fascist) solution suppress subsequent civil unrest.  The US builds FEMA camps, funds corporate mercenary military, NSA spying, etc.  It is also about US militarism which promotes the corporate global takeover.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMV3FHLh1Ik excellent


***** Why We Fight, 100 minutes in 12 parts, 2005, answers why they hate us:  blowback for US policy. Imperialism/exploitation is the norm for nations.    A quality documentary, a lesson from history, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBoTaPwRuC0&list=PL5AF95E92DFE84597   Excellent

Uses news videos to do the talking with narration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_0S80jMeg0  Excellent


Evan Solomon Interviews Noam Chomsky on His Book 9/11, 41 min, 21,000 views, Canadian Broadcast Corporations, done around 2002.  Chomsky discusses two themes: U.S. as a terrorist state and manufacturing consent.  Chomsky lets the facts speak (most of which are absent from the US media, but known in Europe).   One of his best,   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lPnLK9z1fI  very good


Manufacturing Consent, 168 minutes, 32,000 views, Prof. Noam Chomsky, covering Chomsky’s talks over 4 decades with supporting interviews and historical background footage, such as on the massacre in East Timor.  Shows how the press by lies and selective reporting manufactures consent; a bit long-winded, low budget, academic, but a very important message https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzufDdQ6uKg  very good

8. Depression, the spiral downward


The Fall 2007-2010 crash.  Economic depression exists when the GDP shrinks significantly, now called a recession, what will the call the 2020 crash?  The numbers are cooked because they included the profits of the parasitic financial sector.  The standard of lives overall is declining, while productivity of labor increases.  Workers produce more and get less.  The main causes of the last-3 economic crashes (1981, 2007, & 2020) are the need to inflate the casino economy by increasing government debt, which is used by the financial sector—their holdings in gov debt as the fractional assets for the issue of fiat currency.  One dollar in T-bill permits 10 dollars of fiat currency (that ratio isn’t enforced & repealed for the 12 Federal Reserve Banks).  The expansion of shadow banking to over 1,000 trillion in debt obligations needs a steady increase in debt base assets to inflate the market.  “Since 1854, the U.S. has encountered 32 cycles of expansions and contractions, with an average of 17 months of contraction and 38 months of expansion” (Wikipedia, Recession, Nov 2021.  Watch above The Secret of Oz to get a glimpse of the power of control the currency of a nation, done for the goal of every increasing profits.    Using real economy (productivity) the income of the bottom 90% has declined.  A depression is an economic contraction real economy, a recession is a significant decline, but not below zero.

Quality but three major errors, it blames government for banking including shadow banking, 2) misses neoliberalism, and the global financial unification, 3) the fiat currency used to buy up 3rd world and 1st world businesses, land, etc.  Governments issue currency, not just one nation is fix.  Wants gold backed currency, but there isn’t enough gold on a dolla- for-dollar ratio to supply global needs.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNIE7qUePq8 Excellent

The three shows on Korea show a parallel to the Dark Ages when people loved their Church and worshiped.  Today the masses of Koreans love their glorious leader, his son, and grandson in a pattern that repeats that of the Dark Ages, only as the film shows the people are far-more-happier and unified.  The spirit of the people is captured in the German national documentary filmed 2019; it contrasts the 2014.  The heavy hand exacting loyalty is another example of government power suppressing criticism with the support of the “good citizens,” and there are many in history from the communist hunts in the US, religious laws in Europe, the Arab nations bonding to a religion.  There is an ugly side to human nature, and Korea blends both love of neighbor with hate for opposition—one more example of many.

Statement by Herman Goring in prison, just prior to his suicide:

Naturally the common people don’t want war, neither in England, Russia, or for that matter Germany. That is understood, but after all it is the leaders of the country [and shadow government, banksters] of the country that decide and it is always easy to drag the people along whether it is a democracy, fascist dictatorship, or communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders that is easy!  All you got to do is to tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peace makers for a lack of patriotism and exposing the country to dangers.  It works the same in any country
