Bankers Gone Wild ...


This story begins back before the United States was the United States.

Why the Currency Act is not mentioned in the public schools will become apparent further on.

Then the money was taxed back into the government's hands, then to be re-spent back into circulation. For each fiscal year the money issued equaled the money collected. Nothing was lost.
