***** The Money Masters 217 min, seen by 10s of millions, 1995, Bill Stills, a Libertarian account of the banking system.  I have spent hours confirming the suspect points of the film.  It was carried on independent PBS station in 2002 and in 2008.  Strong on history and education, it shows how the financial system functions to maximize profits, while pretending to provide essential services, and in so doing controls the economy.  The federal banks have the power to crash an economy through controlling the demand for federal debt obligations (mostly T-bills), this entails that they are above control.  The solution is to go from a debt based currency (debt to national banks and member banks) to a fiat currency issued by government and free of interest payments.  Currently over $800 billion per year is paid on interest by the US government, plus a similar amount by states and local governments, and again by businesses and citizens. Over 40% of GDP consists of the financial sector.

***** International Monetary System – New Economic Slavery, 51 min, 119,000 views, on how banks make money out of buying treasury bonds, to which they loan our government (as does all central banks) money (credit) to which they receive interest payment.  Deposits are leveraged to create more loans at a ratio of 10 to 1.  This expansion of currency allows for a casino economy with rampant speculative investments.  Expansion of currency also entails inflation.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogqZ6pnWM7o Very good
