The Money Masters is a 1996 historical documentary film by Bill Still that discusses the concepts of money, debt, and taxes, describing their development from biblical times onward. It also covers the history of fractional-reserve banking, central banking, monetary policy, the bond market, and the Federal Reserve System in the United States. This detailed documentary proves how The Federal Reserve and other central banks worldwide are privately owned corporations. Most people think the “Fed” is part of the United States Government but it is not. Therefore this corporation operates in self-interest and concert with other central banks thus, extraction of wealth via a hidden tax as inflation. Moreover, the money supply monopoly, the ability to control the number of currency units in circulation and interest rates, causes a manipulation in perceived property values.
