Storyline

What's going on with the world's economy? Foreclosures are everywhere, unemployment is skyrocketing - and this may only be the beginning. Could it be that solutions to the world's economic problems could have been embedded in the most beloved children's story of all time, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"? The yellow brick road (the gold standard), the emerald city of Oz (greenback money), even Dorothy's silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were powerful symbols of author L. Frank Baum's belief that the people - not the big banks -- should control the quantity of a nation's money. Written by Bill Still

Nothing has changed since the crime of 1913
7 March 2010 | by ps-68See all my reviews

A wonderful sequel and addition to a world wide known masterpiece "The Money Masters" released in 1996.

No, no conspiracy theories there I'm afraid, just plain facts and hard evidence from hundreds of books on American and world history, politics, finance and Austrian economics that will heat-up arithmetic and logic devices in Your brain. And if You thought '07-'10 economic crisis is almost over, the film will make You think again.

The film is another massive nail to the coffin of Keynesian view. Films like these will never be broadcast by Your local TV station.

As the chronicles say, the treasures of knowledge are the most rare, and guarded the most harshly.
