A brilliant book detailing the Federal Reserve's hold on the money supply, it's clandestine history and deceptive guise as a Federal branch of the government and what money really is.

This book was quite a surprise!!! I expected a book on the theory of money, and the history of the Federal Reserve to be a real "snorer," but I quickly found that Griffin is a very witty writer with a knack for keeping the reader's interest. I also knew I'd learned something when a local bank used at least one of the tricks Griffin details in this book to justify their tremendous losses because 2/3rds of it was said to be the "value of their good name." I pointed this out to my Dad, and he was quite impressed not only with what I'd learned, but with the kind of financial subterfuge Griffin uncovers. It is a rare book I've liked enough to buy it twice. I'd just purchased the 4th edition of "Creature" in Fall, 2009, and later found the 5th edition (updated to cover the 2008 collapse, TARP, etc.) had been released in Spring, 2010. I spent another $20+ on the new edition even though I'd not yet finished the one I'd previously purchased. Although other reading demands necessitated setting it aside (to be finished shortly!!!), I felt I'd already learned enough to justify the additional expense! Read this eye-opening book. It's the financial and historic education you should have gotten in school, but never did. It's also a lot more entertaining than your economics teacher.
