Quotes

Onaconda Farr: You must give the speech in his place.
Padmé Amidala: But they're expecting to hear from the great Bail Organa. He carries a certain weight. He's seen as a voice of reason.
Onaconda Farr: You are very respected.
Padmé Amidala: As a partisan. I've been against this bill from day one. If they didn't listen to me before, why would they listen now?
Teckla Minnau: Because you do listen. You understand what the people are going through. Please... your people are waiting for you.

Shameful.
11 January 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The writer of this episode has no idea about how the banking system works. No idea! Bankers get rich manipulating the currency and interest rates, in a form opposed of how here is narrated. Bankers don't want control over the currency in order to have high interest rates, but just the opposite. The lower the interest rates, the easier to get people to ask for loans. More loans and mortgages; more profit by charging interest. All economic crises of the past 100 years have occurred for this reason: for the expansion of money credit, because bankers have put artificially low interest rates.

This issue has more relation with Star Wars than it seems. It's important to know how the monetary system works in order to understand how governments and banks can dominate the people by, simply, printing money and creating inflation. To enslave people are not needed lightsabers and battles, is enough with have control over the currency that this people use. And this happened when Nixon destroyed the "Gold Standard", in 1971. Separated the currency from gold, the Central Banks have been able to manipulate the money and interest rates at their absolute will. I'm afraid that, although some people do not believe it, we are living now in times of the Empire. The Republic died in 1971, when the dollar was no longer backed by gold and silver.

As a fan of Star Wars, I really find shameful that the writer of this chapter do not know anything about economics. A writer must know about what he is writing. For teach children, first, you must teach yourself.

If anyone is interested in these issues I recommend, as a short introduction, hear the speeches of Ron Paul "The end of dollar hegemony" (15/02/2006) and "End the Fed" (25/02/2009 ). Also I recommend read the authors of the Austrian School of Economics (Ludwig Von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard, Jesús Huerta de Soto, Juan Ramón Rallo, Carlos Rodríguez Braun, etc...).

And sorry for my bad English grammar.
