Video: The Money Masters - The Rise Of The Bankers

Anyone seen it? Crazy stuff.

" The Money Masters is a 1996 documentary film that discusses the concepts of money, debt, taxes, and describes their development from biblical times onward."

Nah … I’ll have to check it out though thanks … I love history of monetary theory and monetary theory in general

If anyone ended up watching it or is familiar with it, what was Lincoln trying to do with green backs? What was the issue with,paper money, the bankers and not wanting to have a currency backed by gold? Was it that it was backed by gold and the banks were just hoarding it?
