Why do banks make so much money?

Basically, because they’re allowed to create money out of thin air — and then lend that money at an interest rate. This video explains how it works.

Hey, this is a great summary! Not sure if you’ve seen this or not, but if you’re keen for a bit more perspective on the situation, this animation I came across a few weeks back covers the backstory behind it all quite well in a bit more depth ->


Cheers for helping open the doorway for awareness thus action

I watched the 30 minute animated video and thought it was amazing. Thanks for sharing it! Brilliant! :-)

The Fractional Reserve practice is basically war against population, and an instrument that creates social inequality by design.

Another great documentaries that explains the mechanics are:
“Money as Debt” ( I and II )
And “Capitalism and other kids stuff”

Great video! Well done. It’s amazing how very few people actually know the history of banking and understand how organizations like the Federal Reserve in America along with all the world’s big banks literally create money out of thin air. They charge large amounts of interest on loans to the governments and big banks who then turn around and gouge us.

We pay for the ‘privilege’ to barrow money that doesn’t actually exist and has no real value. These financial entities make pure profit for doing absolutely nothing to earn it. I’ve outlined more information on my own site http://t.co/xaCq4m6. I’ll have more to come during the next few weeks. Thanks for sharing the video!
