  1. It's important to understand what we're bailing out. And to do that, you need to understand who founded the Federal Reserve, and why. JP Morgan, Senator Aldrich, very, very interesting.

  3. Criticism at the time of the Fed Reserve bill by a Representative Henry:

    "is wholly in the interest of the creditor classes, the banking fraternity, and the commercial world, without proper provision
    for the debtor classes and those who toil, produce, and sustain the country."
