5.0 von 5 Sternen The Federal Reserve must go
I have read "The Creature from Jekyll Island" and "Secrets of the Temple" and "The Creature from Jekyll Island" is an easier read and is more on point.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Do not buy at this store!
I should have received a bok in "very good" condition but unfortunately the book was sent with a long delay in an insufficient packing to me. The corners were damaged, the front page wrinkeld, the edges of the pages were twistet and the back was brocken - a book for the garbage. To pay over 30 USD for such a tormented piece of paper makes me furious. I only can...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Federal Reserve must go, 8. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
I have read "The Creature from Jekyll Island" and "Secrets of the Temple" and "The Creature from Jekyll Island" is an easier read and is more on point. This book gave life to suspicions I had in high school and covered points I had not previously thought of. One of the author's strengths is his ability to go very in depth with this topic without getting overly artsy and ambiguous with his writing. I would like to comment on a couple of reviews on this book before I finish my own. My comments are not meant as a personal attack against these individuals. They can say what they want. However, I believe some of their comments are misleading and hurt both author and potential reader unfairly.
Greg Whyte goes after the author for not having a balanced and objective view. The establishment has had their say, and the author can go after the FED however he pleases. The author clearly outlines several valid reasons why the FED should be abolished. This reviewer also accuses the author of using falsehoods, innuendos, and misinterpreted statistics, but this same reviewer does not give one example nor does this reviewer tell us where to do proper, independent research we should do.
Clint says the bankers should have had a say. I agree. All of them and not just a few of the wealthiest. The men at Jekyll Island did not go there on behalf of the entire banking industry. This reviewer also wonders who is actually cheating the public: Is the author cheating the public with his documented and clearly written book or is it the the media, FED friendly politicians, and Alan Greenspan, who was against fiat money until seeing the FED's "Help Wanted" sign, cheating the public?
A reader from Prescott AZ says that the danger is the raising of interest rates eventhough the author details several other dangers of the FED throughout the book. Also, check your own loss of purchase power with FED funny money. One does not have to work in banking to study the FED. Also, the author highlights activities of government leaders and the FED in the book.
The solution at the end of the book is very well thought out and a great way to end the book. Putting the financial destiny of the world in the hands of a few big bankers is bad news no matter how you slice it. Mr. Griffin outlines this with great precision in his book. The Federal Reserve and any other mechanism like it must be eliminated. There are other ways to make a difference with this issue as well. I will return with more on that later, maybe.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well Developed, Inciteful Expose of Forces Facing Us Today, 15. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
As much of Griffin's material is in the public domain as well as somewhat disturbing, I have only a small complaint about his discussion of the Thrift Crisis and related topics. I did bank/thrift bailout while on Wall Street. I professionally analyzed banks and other financial companies for more than 10 years. The real problems with this era of Banking began with 1) weak legislation 2) poor oversight resulting from a. bad legislation and b. Administration recklessness as in the Case of Reagan's ignorance of what was happening with the Thrift crisis subsequent to Volcker's Fed activity, and the 1986 Tax Act, which affected how real estate investments were tax sheltered. Many financial institutions had varying exposures to real estate, and with Fed interest rate increases with Greenspan in the late 1980s, the problems with real estate due to legislation, then bad bank legislation... brought many bank/thrift failures, the recession of the 90's and a huge transfer of assets from former property owners to those who gained the property/assets through bidding with RTC and FDIC.
Griffin's research and work does improve my understanding and expose why our government has handled itself so wrecklessly here and abroad, and why it appears to follow the same pattern, going forward by making foolish partnerships via the WTO, normalizing trade relations with totalitarian governments, and sticking it to the US Citizen/taxpayer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Down With The Federal Reserve, 28. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
G. Edward Griffin hits a homerun with this book. It is amazing how little people know about this unaccountable and unconstitutional organization.
This interest bearing national debt is a fraud. The federal reserve is not federal and it has no reserves. Basically, a private corporation has the power to create money out of thin air. If you or I did that we would be charged with counterfeiting. The FED even admits that they are a private entity. I know a guy who tried to get info from them under the Freedom of Information Act, and they responded by telling him they were not subject to the FOIA because they are a private group. Amazing!
Get on your local radio talk shows when politicians are on and find out their knowledge and position on the Federal Reserve. Some politicians are ignorant of how the FED plays the game and some are complicit in helping the game continue.
We need to return the issuing power of money back to congress in accordance with the constitution. Mr. Griffin spells out great solutions at the end of his book. It would be beneficial for the money to be linked to silver with gold reserves in place to deal with major market shifts.
To the reviewer who tells us to be wary of Mr. Griffin because he is connected to the John Birch Society, SO WHAT! Does that negate what he says or what is documented in his book. Did you even read it? I doubt you did. Your mentality is just like that of an uneducated bigot. Watch out, "He is black so there must be crime afoot. She is latino so there must be laziness afoot."
Get this book and read it. There are a lot of good articles and stories about the Federal Reserve on the net as well. Education and action are key...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most important book I have ever read., 3. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
This book will open your eyes to the fact that our government is not the warm and friendly thing that the evening news makes it out to be. As Americans, we are very optimistic, and often this is helpful for our sanity and survival. There are times, however, when our sense of outrage is too much. This is the effect the book had on me. The collusion of forces (both knowing and willing, and the duped) described in this book is a real threat to our constitutional republic, freedom, and ability to prosper. The notion that the current tax economy and inflated currency is "normal", speaks to the severity of the problem, the lengths to which the powerful have covered their tracks, and the inability of the common man to see past the propaganda. Thank God for Mr. Griffin, for his courage to put his life in danger. There are many powerful and wealthy people who do not want the truth known. I would suggest that those who liked this book share it with others, and educate yourself in the law. Look under the hood of other widely misunderstood government agencies such as Social Security and IRS. The pattern is disturbing. Also, read the constitution, and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors. Our founding fathers gave us the protection we needed to live as free people. We have ignored the written law, given the corrupt politicians free reign, and there appears to be no end in sight. This book can properly educate, and this is the only way to turn around our corrupt money and tax system.
Shame on Clint from Orlando FL (The only reviewer not giving 5 stars). Beware of propaganda from those with a vested interest.

4.0 von 5 Sternen superb, 30. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
In answer to the review below: I did do independent research. Did you? This book, while slightly marred by the occasional conspiracy theory, is a great account of one of the most important real life conspiracies of our time. It is well researched with plenty of footnotes for anyone who wants to look more deeply. It tells the real story of how bankers have lured politicians with easy money and ended up in control of most of the world. Whether or not they can keep up our (or rather, their) sleight-of-hand monetary system forever, the important thing is the power these bankers wield that should not be theirs.
This book should be required reading. And by all means do your own research.
Topics covered: founding of the Federal Reserve, war mongering, bail-outs, boom-bust cycles, the J.P.Morgans and Rothschilds of the world, the history of central banking in the United States, and most fascinating: how the money system really works in this country.
Despite its lack of perfection, this book is by far the most relevant and interesting thing I have read about economics in a long time. It is written in terms that anyone can understand, which will immediately rule out the kind of reader who is impressed by a lot of technical jargon that supposedly demonstrates an author's mastery of the subject while only serving to confuse laymen (and experts too). Combined with some of the author's own somewhat odd ideas, that does tend to make the book look less serious. But read it and you will see that the information is there. You can learn a great deal from this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mr. Griffin's work is a superlative masters-piece..Beware!, 18. September 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
I have met Mr. Edward Griffin, and have a dedicated autographed edition of "The Creature from Jekyll Island" I encountered the Author in Paradise Island, The Bahamas during a Global-II OffShore Seminar. His 1-hour introduction speach was filled with hope. Later, when I purchased the edition from his vendor's table, I engaged him in a brief conversation regarding staying-in, or removing oneself from "The System". Upon hearing me declare that I was in the processes of employing necessary transitional technologies our of "The System", Mr Griffin was adamant about remailing within "it". "Some must remain and do what is necessary to change the system from within its jurisdiction, peaceably, through the congressional lawmaking body." He and his wife remain the courageous ones who will work to lawfully change an evil by overcoming it with good. To late? That remains to be seen. I also have a 90-minute audio cassette with the same title as the book, that I was enabled to purchase at the conference. Perhaps you may be able to obtain a copy by writing to the publisher.
The book is a surpurb read and edge of your chair excitement. Every American needs this one in his library.
Respectfully, Cajun Mike

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Comprehensive Book Written on the Federal Reserve, 24. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
This book is without a doubt the best book written on the "Federal" Reserve (which is about as "federal" as Federal Express). The book's four chapters explaining what money is (and isn't!) are the best I have ever read (and that includes the late, great economist Murray Rothbard's "What Has Government Done to Our Money"). My only qualm with this book is that Mr. Griffin should have left out the "C" word (i.e., conspiracy) from the text. He should just tell the history of the "Fed" along with his excellent economic analysis and let the reader figure out for him or herself what is going on. It becomes difficult to recommend this book to anybody outside of the John Birch Society (for which Mr. Griffin is a writer). But all in all, Mr. Griffin has done an admirable job. This is the true story of the monstrosity we affectionately call "The Fed" -- not like that Establishment whitewash on the "The Fed" by Rolling Stone writer William Greider called "Secrets of the Temple." For those of you who are skeptical about reading Mr. Griffin's long tome, you might want to start with Murray Rothbard's much shorter "The Case Against the Fed," before moving on to the Griffin work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book, but......., 1. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
This book is an absolute must read if you want to understand how money works and is controlled within the context of modern society. It really opened my eyes.
At the beginning, I was concerned that Griffin was simply spouting a bunch of conspiracy theory. However, he supports his claims with a lot of factual evidence that simply cannot be ignored unless you've chosen to be stick your head in the sand about the potential injustices that exist in the world today. Many of his claims are manifesting themselves in the present day, as well. The European Union, the increasing strength and presence of NATO, the IMF, and the World Bank. All moves toward one-world socialism.
My caution to all new readers is that the book can become depressing to read at times. Kudos to Griffin for warning us about that early on in his introduction. A lot of the information you find contained within these pages is not necessarily stuff you want to hear or believe. Griffin also seems a bit pessimistic regarding future predictions. The eventual collaspe of modern society as we know it is ultimately in the hands of God, not the members of the CFR - make no mistake about that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most important book you can read on economics & banking, 27. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
As a teacher and professional editor, I find that many books are written either verbosely, or with poor organization, and therefore are not easy to read nor very convincing.
However :
Creature from Jekyll Island is the best-written and best-researched text book on any subject that I have ever read, and this subject is the MOST important one can read ! Understanding the system by which we earn our living and lose or maintain our freedom is of vital importance to everyone.
Mr. Griffin's logic, thought and writing is lucid, fascinating, and will teach you more about the key elements of our money system, than most economics professors know. (I have interviewed them and found that PhDs in economics generally know a lot about very little.) Mr. Griffin gives you the big picture with superb research and an exciting writing style.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good, as long as you take it with a grain of salt, 25. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (Taschenbuch)
I think this is a good book, albeit with a few reservations. For example, readers should take the talk of "New World Order," "CFR-Controlled Newspapers," and such things with a grain of salt. In addition, the reader should remember that Report From Iron Mountain IS nothing more than political satire, which has been admitted many times over.
Despite these reservations, this is an important book. It is excellent at explaining that the idea that the Federal Reserve developed as response to the Panic of 1907 is a myth. It also gives a superb discussion on wars, how the banking system works, etc. The section dealing with Andrew Jackson's battle with the banksters is particuraly delightful. Overall, this is a book that every American should read. Four Stars.
