The Money Masters

The Money Masters is a documentary on the history of central banking, monetary policy the bond system and fractional-reserve banking. The film was produced by Patrick S. J. Carmack and was directed and narrated by Bill Still. The Money Masters should not be confused with the company Money Masters LLC, which is a Registered Investment Advisory Firm.

The Money Masters the documentary discuss the topics of money (as it relates to central banking and fractional reserve banking), debt, taxes and their development throughout the modern world.

The documentary criticises the control aspects of modern centralized banking systems and regulation. The film uses as evidence the history of money and banking, showing the viewer how central banks came to be what they are today, and how they operate. It supports its assertions by references and quotations from past Presidents and major players in the banking industry.

The film contends that by the end of World War I private central banks owned and controlled much of America's large media, paper and film outlets, and that they achieved this through the large consolidation of wealth generated by Fractional-reserve banking and later a fractional based finance system. The film contends this alleged near-monopoly of the financial system goes largely unnoticed or redacted from the human history because of the control of human information exchange through this mainstream media ownership.

By way of conclusion, the film presents an option for a different kind of monetary policy for the United States of America.

If I may, I would like to keep the videos as resource material to teach students about economic violence in the world. With good wishes." - Arun Gandhi, M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence.

Best wishes". - Milton Friedman, Nobel Laureate in Economics; Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace.
