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 a media that promotes knowledge and social justice.  We have a corporatist state with the façade of a people’s democracy.    


Note: I have included a number of Economics Explained videos 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. Globalization and Banking

    Financial sector controlling currency is a power above nations!


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; e.g., WHO in April predicts 42-66 million less children from increased poverty.  Logical, misses false positive, counting those without symptoms as infected, the comparison to yearly flu pandemic, hospital’s  $13,000 incentive for positive, and use of drugs that lower ATP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RDffMCAujg Very 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


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 18,800,000 views, 2013, 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.   Stated in documentary, $50 trillion in debt (2103) is $500 trillion counting shadow banking debt obligations—now over $600 trillion.  Financial cycles are created to increase government debt which is used as assets by the financial sector to expand the total credit:  $1 asset equal $10 in credit.  This is a good lecture, but is creating a rosy picture that doesn’t address why productivity increase and personal wealth of the bottom 95% has be gradually decreasing.  The financial sector grows since they are the power above governments and force governments to expand their Treasury bill debt to get out of economic declines.  Worth watching, but it puts lipstick on the financial pig, the banksters  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGzN43Clbis good.  Put these pieces together and know the problem.  The alternative is for government to issue credit and remove the financial parasitic sector.  That could have happened in 1900, but not today, as organized banking will have governments issue economic sanctions  to crash the economy  of a “rogue” nation and if necessary, bomb it like they did to Libya in 2014.  Watch the 2 libertarian documentaries by Bill Stills below for the history of banking.

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

  1. Banking’s Economics and History


***** 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=swkq2E8mswI

***** 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

***** 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

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

How the rich get richer – money in the world economy 42 min, 689,000 views by DW (German gov.) well below the  standard of the others; however, has several important points:  one is that uncontrolled banks entails currency inflation and short-term gains for those at the top, with the knowledge that government will bail them out if there is a crash.   Appears to have been done a couple of years after the crash, possible update in 2017; short interview, understates ssues, skips others, boring but valuable  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6m49vNjEGs   Okay


 




[1] Given the quality of the production corporate movie theaters and media outlets are not to show documentaries which are contrary to US talking points or are critical.  Such muckraking has a limited market, and this affects their budget.

Stealing Africa—Why Poverty?  58 min, 375.000 views; BBC:  how Zambia which is copper rich is one of the 20 poorest countries.  Show how multinational copper companies avoid paying taxes to Zambia.  It is a well done, entertaining investigative reporting.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNYemuiAOfU Excellent

Palestine is Still the Issue, 53 min, 12,800 views; John Pilger, 2002, British Documentary maker shown on BBC.  Reveals what the European audiences knows:  that Israel is a terrorist state and arm of US policy, but American media portrays freedom fighters as terrorist; but who has invaded Palestine?  Israel’s atrocities and plan for expulsion of Palestinians are known to everywhere but in the US—repeated UN resolutions vetoed by the US confirm this.  It is an effective, balanced, insightful denial of our media’s script on Israel.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnc6Kt-7vjc&index=3&list=PLkNybwM2FPClkBZPvM9L-14HBdPeIiq-5  Excellent

***** Silence of the Labs   45 min, 15,000 views, CBC; Canadian government’s war on science in the public’s interest.  What is true about Canadian government policy is even more-true for the US government and EU countries.  The science behind drug safety, effects of pollution, nutrition and all else that that effects corporations is being replaced by corporate tobacco science.  Government funded science has been manipulated in our corporatist state, as too the regulatory agencies such as the FDA.  When scientists write of conclusion contrary to tobacco science, listen and learn; because GMOs aren’t proven safe, and cholesterol does cause heart attacks.  A must see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ms45N_mc50Y Excellent §

Utopia (The Secret Country) 110 min, 5,000 views John Pilger.  A black chapter in the history of Australian comparable to South Africa’s apartheid history.  Last half is on how, once uranium was discovered, the mining corporations used their power to obtain mineral rights from the aborigines https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHZRuJq1AKU
