What is money? Where does it come from?
This is a subject that I have written about many times. It is a critical topic becuase people really don't understand it.
Some of my writings include:
--- The Gold Blog. Gold/Silver/GSMs (and a little Oil for good measure) - LINK
--- Thoughts on the US Dollar, Analysis of the USDX Long Term, Follow up on the Gold Blog - LINK
Another excellent source is Chris Martenson. Watch his phenomenal presenation and educational set, The Crash Course. He discusses money early on in the presentation.
Well, here is another to add to the list. At the Swarm there is a really good one regarding Canada's financial system (which for all practical purposes is just like the US system. The Federal Reserve is a private bank).
What follows is a very entertaining, creative, and educational movie about the money system in Canada. Yes, it’s almost all applicable to the USA and to the entire debt-backed money world. There are some editorials you may not agree with, but I think it’s worth your time overall. This is a good one to share with those who may not be familiar with the way money works – in other words nearly everyone!
