Introductory comments by Jere L Hough
For those who want to fully understand our world’s current financial predicament, the real look at “just how deep the rabbit hole goes”, I have found no other written work as thorough, plain spoken, and balanced as the book, Web of Debt, by Ellen H Brown.
For several years I had been planning to write a book exposing the Federal Reserve System, and the “international central banking syndicate” in ways that the common person with a high school education could easily understand. Finding and reading this literary triumph was both a great reward as well as a disappointment. I realized that I could do no better at explaining this difficult subject of money-creation and control than Ellen Brown had done in the book I was reading. My efforts have shifted now to trying to alert as many people as possible to what is really happening to our world’s economic systems, and why.
Let there be no doubt that those who control the economic systems and therefore, the money that is the life-blood of those systems, are more powerful than transient political leaders of the moment. Those who can collapse a nation’s economy with a nod of the head are more powerful than any president or prime minister, or congress or court. Only an awakened and informed citizenry can retake the power of economic sovereignty that has been taken from them by shrewd, wicked, greedy and deceptive international financiers who are now engaged in a dance of death for power and control over you, your family and future, and everything else we hold valuable and dear.
We can no longer afford to ignore these grave storm warnings of the approaching “perfect storm”. It is no longer coming. It is here. Financial and monetary reform can wait no longer. Ellen H Brown’s peerless book, Web of Debt is the yellow brick road that could take us home. It’s time we were on our way. – Jere L Hough, 2009-02-25

President Andrew Jackson called the banking cartel a “hydra-headed monster eating the flesh of the common man.” New York Mayor John Hylan, writing in the 1920s, called it a “giant octopus” that “seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection.” The debt spider has devoured farms, homes and whole countries that have become trapped in its web. In a February 2005 article called “The Death of Banking,” financial commentator Hans Schicht wrote:
