Ellen Hodgson Brown: Web of Debt

The Shocking Truth About Our Money System And How We Can Break Free

Third Millennium Press, 2010 (2007)     Amazon.com

Back Cover:

EXPLODING THE MYTHS ABOUT MONEY
Our money system is not what we have been led to believe. The creation of money has been privatized, or taken over by a private money cartel. Except for coins, all of our money is now created as loans advanced by private banking institutions, including the “private” Federal Reserve. Banks create the principal but not the interest to service their loans. To find the interest, new loans must continually be taken out, expanding the money supply, inflating prices, and robbing you of the value of your money. Web of Debt unravels the deception and presents a crystal clear picture of the financial abyss towards which we are heading. Then it explores a workable alternative, one that was tested in colonial America and is grounded in the best of American economic thought, including the writings of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. If you care about financial security, your own or the nation’s, you should read this book.
“The real truth is…that a financial element in the large centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”  President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933
“The sack of the United States by the Fed is the greatest crime in history. Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its powers, but the truth is the Fed has usurped the government.”  Charles McFadden, Chairman, House Banking and Currency Committee, 1932
Blurbs on the Back Cover:
“Ellen Brown has applied her training as a litigating attorney, researcher and writer to the monetary field, unearthing facts that even the majority of banking and financial experts ignore: ranging from the privatization of money creation, to the Plunge Protection Team, to the Federal Reserve’s ‘Helicopter Money’. Read it; you’ll get information you need in order to understand what is going on in our financial markets today.”  Bernard Lietaer, former European central banker, author of The Future of Money and Of Human Wealth
“Literacy on the topic of money is at an all-time low. This book is tremendously important not only in its presentation, but by drawing attention to an age-old topic that should have a major presence in the public mind.”  Benjamin Gisin, senior loan officer for a top ten bank, author of Farmers and Ranchers Guide to Credit, publisher of Touch the Soil magazine
Reviews:
“Ellen Hodgson Brown may have done the impossible. She wrote a book about the most stupefying subject in the world money, where it comes from and how it is manipulated and made it readable, compelling, even suspenseful. Web of Debt is a page-turner that explains the origin of the Federal Reserve, the functioning of our money supply, currency speculation, capital flows, and the rest…Her overarching theme, that money must be made to serve the public good instead of private masters, carries the force of conviction.”  Acres USA
“Most people need backing of some sort to break through and capture a share of the public mind, but Ms. Brown has seemingly accomplished this all by herself, without funding of any kind. It almost defies comprehension. If we wore a thousand hats, they would all be doffed in respect to Ms. Brown’s courageous and apparently independent intellectual journey. We are impressed enough with Ms. Brown’s approach to award her a title all her own, in fact. There are in our opinion, in modern economic thought, now Keynesians, Austrians and Brownians.”  The Daily Bell

“It’s frankly difficult to find a good book that will help a person become literate about our modern money supply. Most that are accurate are hopelessly dense and written for graduate students in economics…Ellen Brown has translated a dense subject into a readable and fascinating story…Web of Debt by Ellen Brown not only demystifies money, but provides some thought-provoking and realistic solutions to our nation’s dangerous dependence on a for-profit banking system that is sucking the financial lifeblood out of our nation…Buy it, read it, and get active!”  Thom Hartmann’s Review of the Month for Buzzflash

“Ms. Brown has taken two subjects considered boring – history and monetary policy – and turned them into a book as thrilling as any Tom Clancy novel, except that this book is true…If you are looking to have an understanding of the monetary mess we are in, this is an excellent historical overview with some truly elegant and ingenious ideas about correcting the problems we presently face. As you read this book you may find yourself feeling like ‘Neo’ in The Matrix, newly awakened from the slumber of ignorance and deceit. Best of all, she offers viable solutions to the problems that have plagued our planet for millennia. This may well be one of the most important books you will ever read.”  American Free Press

“If there is one book, one newspaper, one blog, one article, that one should read to understand the current economic crisis, to understand the root of the problem, and to understand the solution, it is The Web of Debt…The only ideology presented is one of fairness, integrity, and common sense.”  Online Journal Reviews

About the Author:
Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and the money trust. She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back. Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s. That experience produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system. Brown’s eleven books include the bestselling Nature’s Pharmacy, co-authored with Dr. Lynne Walker, which has sold 285,000 copies.
