Financial System

Where did the modern banking system come from? Who invented it? Who controls it? Can we live without it? Financial systems are the engines of first-world cultural paradigms, but an unquestioning acceptance of the supremacy of banks, government treasuries, stock market, financial institutions, and economic models have led to a world wherein currency and financial resources are in the hands of a very few, yet essential to survival for all. Learn about the power of the FED, Wall Street schemes, esoteric monetary symbolism from Babylonian times, "banksters," and consumerist conspiracy theories. Look further and explore expanded ideas of sacred economy, financial freedom, subversive cryptocurrencies — even ancient currency-free exchange models such as Ubuntu.
