"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial

element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since

the days of Andrew Jackson. History depicts Andrew Jackson as the last

truly honorable and incorruptible American president."

-- Franklin D. Roosevelt

(1882-1945), 32nd US President

November 21, 1933

"I am afraid that the ordinary citizen

will not like to be told that the banks

can and do create and destroy money.

And they who control the credit of a nation

direct the policy of governments, and

hold in the hollow of their hands

the destiny of the people."

-- Richard McKenna

Secretary to the Treasury (1903), President of the Board of Education (1907–08) First Lord of the Admiralty (1908–1911), Home Secretary (1911–1915) and Chancellor of the Exchequer (1915–1916), and Chairman of the Midland Bank (1918)

"...the concentration of capital and the growth of their turnover

is radically challenging the significance of the banks. Scattered

capitalists are transformed into a single collective capitalist. When

carrying the current accounts of a few capitalists, the banks, as it

were, transact a purely technical and exclusively auxiliary operation.

When, however, these operations grow to enormous dimensions

we find that a handful of monopolists control all the operations,

both commercial and industrial, of capitalist society.

They can, by means of their banking connections."

-- Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

[Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov] (1870 - 1924), First Leader of the Soviet Union
