The Federal Reserve Conspiracy
by Anthony C. Sutton
Published in June 1995
Thibault’s Score: 4/5
Much like in The Creature from Jekyll Island, Sutton describes the creation of the Fed hour by hour in a very conspiratorial way. His book doesn’t read like Greenspan’s autobiography all which is a dignified retelling of the events, but unlike Griffon assumes that the reader is intelligent.
The book is very well written and concise. It describes the creation of the Federal Reserve very well, and doesn’t go into unnecessary detail.
At a certain point the author makes bizarre claims about the origins of Marxism and tries to tie Carl Marx to central banking. I thought that chapter was a bit bizarre, but otherwise enjoyed the book.
Sutton exposes the cabal of bankers that lobbied for the creation of the Federal Reserve and makes a clear and concise case against central banking.
Most of my articles are book reviews, but I also write about many other topics.
