The American Dream

door sTaF op Sun. 9 Oct. 11 om 18:15

Binnenkort organiseer ik een coöperatief groepswerk rond delen van deze film. Dit werkt natuurlijk niet in deze post, aangezien jullie voor de computer zitten en niet in groep, maar ik ga de clipjes eens posten met bijhorende vragen en bonusopdracht, om te zien wat jullie ervan vinden.


1) How does a regular bank in America make money?

2) How do the banks endanger the American economy?

3) Briefly describe in your own words what the Federal Reserve is.

4) How does the Federal Reserve create money for regular banks? What do they expect in return?

5) Where do the roots of the American banking system lay? (Country, context, banking family,…)

6) Were the founding fathers ‘for’ or ‘against’ a central bank? Motivate your answer.

7) Was the Federal Reserve installed in America without a fight? When and how did they eventually come to exist?

8) How does the Federal Reserve create a financial strain on the American people?

Bonus assignment: discuss these quotes

Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild

Buy when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."
President Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence (1919)

The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.
President Thomas Jefferson

Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? It's to see my dividends coming in.
John.D. Rockefeller

The money power preys on the nation in times of peace, and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes.
President Abraham Lincoln

Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.
President James Garfield (assassinated within weeks of release of this statement during first year of his Presidency in 1881)

The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centres has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.
President Franklin Roosevelt Nov. 21, 1933

Well, I don't know as I want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell how to do what I want to do.
J. P. Morgan

"...100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt... all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government."
1984 Grace Commission report requested by President Ronald Reagan
