Theoretically, in a fair democracy or republic, the money should belong to a nation and its people, via the government which should be our caretakers.
In practice, however, the money belongs to a few banking cartels, and thus everyone is subservient to them. This must be the "secret governemnt" everyone is talking about. Zero accountability to anyone!
The following quote, apparently by Mayer Amschel Rothschild's own submission, sums it up perfectly:
"Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes its laws" (1743-1812)
Can anyone confirm he said this or is it just hearsay
“Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws"

Oddly enough, the scam s based on a sound premise. Keep transient and ideologically-minded politicians AWAY from monetary policy which is too important to risk the will and whimsy of some who might be great celebrities but dangerously ignorant of the damage they can do to the economy.
Keep politics - which is a PUBLICITY GAME - out of the economy which has REAL WORLD ramifications.

As I stated earlier, our Fed is just one limb of this monster, it is only a single strand of the web (albeit a load-bearing strand). In order to overcome this corruption of purpose and expansive scheme, we must be willing to be a nation outcast among the world, for refusing to play by the rules of the all-wise and all-benevolent supranational banking cartel.
the mega-wealthy of this world are the first in line to collect on their losses.
From the Bank of England forward all the governments of Europe had central banks for a very good reason. The kings and princes of Europe had learned from hard experience that they could raise the taxes of their subjects only so high and then they had a revolt on their hands and they tended to lose their jobs (and heads). It appears that that natural level was about 40-43%; people will tolerate taxes up to about 40-43% and then they start digging in their heels and they just won't allow it to go any further. But with the central bank mechanism in place the lid was off. Now these governments could tax their people 50%, 60%, 70% and in some cases 80% of everything they produced and they did not have a revolt on their hands. www.bigeye.com...
These people have forgotten who they are supposed to be working for. The American people have every right to know what they are doing with the money they have been entrusted with. It's like an employee emptying the accounts of a business and rufusing to tell their boss where the money went because he might lose confidence if he knew what it was spent on. The American people should not stand for this kind of behaviour from their employees.

I'll reword it for the bastard. "If you audit us, we will destroy this economy. It doesn't matter to us because we will pick up the transfer of capital down the road. We own banks across the globe and there is nowhere for money to go but into our own coffers. You will suffer. We will not."
