Great Article in TruthDig by Ellen Brown

When my good friend Ellen Brown speaks I listen!  You should also.  I do not often reference others works as it is so easy to rely on the efforts of others to build a blog.  I believe that one should do their own thinking and work.  But sometimes, there are articles, like this one by Ellen, that say it all so well and elegantly, that to add to it is neither necessary nor appropriate.  This is one of those articles.  Please read Ellen’s Article on TruthDig titled, The Confiscation Scheme Planned for U.S. and U.K. Depositors.

About Ellen Brown

Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation  in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money  trust.” She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people  can get it back.  Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in  Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua.  She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular  Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s.  That experience  produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting  influences that have captured the money system.  Brown’s eleven books include the bestselling Nature’s Pharmacy, co-authored with  Dr. Lynne Walker, which has sold 285,000 copies.

WebofDebtI believe that the book that I recommend most to friends who want to understand the economy is Ellen’s Book Web of Debt.
