Kathleen Taylor, September 22, 2009 (view all comments by Kathleen Taylor)
This book is dishonest. The author misrepresents many facts. For example, there is a discussion of the history and basis of money. Later in the book he suggests that if everyone paid their debts, all money would disappear because there is no basis for money. He has forgotten that earlier he stated that money arises from labor and goods. The value of labor and goods does not disappear when people pay off their debts.

His case is built on false understandings and no appreciation for other events that were occurring simultaneously with the events he describes. His fantastic argument that Lenin was acting in behalf of capitalists really strains the imagination.

another BookYouMightLike is -- "Life Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take It Back." by Douglas Rushkoff, 2009.

it is also about how "a certain kind of money" became what we call money.

great book...too much to comment on in such a small space. You must read this book so you too can realize how much is unknown and hidden from the citizens of the US.
