Money as Debt

But if you want to continue to be slaves of the banks and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit."
I thought that it would be a fitting quote to open up this essay, seeing that I am to write about the financial crisis that is going on in the United Kingdom. What better person’s quote to use than the director of the Bank of England
As if people may not know, the world is experiencing a so-called global financial crisis. Everywhere an individual turns. there is talk of job-losses, recession, tough times and times getting harder, no matter which politician or elected official gets put in office. It is as if Charles Dickens’ novel "A tale of two Cities" really isn’t a tale at all. It seems that this author’s book was and is effectively serving a preamble of things to come and what is happening right now. Truly it is the best of times and the worst of times simultaneously.

Let’s just hope that England’s colors don’t represent the same virtues as America’s flag. red being blood, white being purity and blue meaning truth. Henceforth, here is a truth again taken from the film Money as Debt from American founding father Benjamin Franklin. "The inability of the Colonist to get power to issue their money permanently out of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the revolutionary war."
However, the colors of the two nation’s flags are not as important as the shade of times that the two countries are living right now. Let’s look at the Bank of England and look at our friend who started the whole concept of banking. For the sake of this essay, let’s call him Gary the Goldsmith.
