Truth Speaks, but who will listen?

This is an eye opening account of the creation of The Federal Reserve, and a look into its creators, their agenda, and how that agenda has affected the world.

The Creature from Jekyll Island is a fascinating, controversial, eye-opening look into one of America's most influential institutions, The Federal Reserve. Every country in the world as we know it, is affected by the decisions made by this financial oligarchy. Birthed in secret meetings, created by secret votes, and conducted without real oversight from any government, The Federal Reserve is The Creature From Jekyll Island.

G. Edward Griffin is a gifted storyteller. He does a magnificent job of bringing history to life, even while he discusses topics that have the tendency to be mundane, and hard to focus on, like the history of money, and how fiscal policies affect our day to day lives. As Griffin brings you this information, he does a masterful job of connecting the dots, and explaining things from multiple angles, so that you get a broader picture of history, and of current events.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history or politics, especially if you are the least bit interested in what goes on in todays news headlines, as most of the things discussed seem like they are clipped right from the headlines, and this was written many years ago!
