Money for Nothing Trailer

Federal Reserve 13 Comments

Does anybody know about this? I am surprised by the strength of some of the statements from Fed officials in this trailer.

Here’s the website for the documentary.

    The director for this was recently interviewed on the Peter Schiff radio show. Seems like a promising documentary.

  2. Jim PM says:

    The guy who made this was on Schiff’s radio show the other day.

      Sorry, somehow mine was the first comment when I initially posted that.

    And chicks for free.

      Now, that ain’t workin …

    “You have what degree of confidence in your ability to control this?”

    “One-hundred percent.”

    There is a special seat waiting for you in hell, The Ben Bernak.

  5. guest says:

    The key tenet underlying Money For Nothing is our belief that a more fully and accurately informed public will promote greater accountability and more effective policies from our central bank …

    But I don’t want “more effective policies” from them; I don’t care what they do, so long as the government stops penalizing the use of other currencies.

    Includes Michael Bordo, but no George Selgin or Larry White? Boo.

    I bet this movie will start off with the lie that “free banking” was a failure, have no reference to Canada’s free banking system, and probably not even make reference to Canada’s lack of bank failures during the Great Depression.

    “It’s a bunch of government workers trying to fix prices”

    That, my friends, is the only thing that matters in the context of economics. (though, you may have quibbles about the public/private nature of the Fed)

    0:40: I don’t think they’re playing Jenga right.

    Wow, this captures most of my worries about the current state of the economy and the current method of the fed and to be honest congressional choices over the last 40 – 60 years… ticking time bomb and larger destabilized economic swings. But we will see.

    There are several clips from the movie on the vimeo channel http://vimeo.com/user4312846/videos

    It’s actually a pretty good doco. The producer did a decent job presenting the material. His perspective seems to sympathize w/ ABCT. I was also surprised by the candor he managed to squeeze out of Fed officials. Took some buddies who are typically pretty oblivious regarding these matters & they are now less blissfully ignorant. Mises.org et. al. should promote this more. My 2 cents.
