This is a very good documentary mostly on the history of money as it builds up to the subordinate theme of interpreting the "The Wizard of Oz" book as a monetary reform movement allegory. Good arguments are presented against the gold money standard--it doesn't matter what is used to back money--gold or silver--but the secret is who controls the quantity of money. The video ends with a very up to date explanation of the current banking bailout crisis and manipulation of debt. The video argues for public government banks that issue money without debt citing the 90 year old North Dakota debt free banks (based on the Swedish nonprofit public banks) and Iceland's public banks before being privatized. Iceland's private debt banks took over the public banks and created Ice Save bank which turned out to have laundered money for the Russian mafia then collapsed and landing the Iceland economy into a severe debt banking crisis.
The corrupt American Wall Street banking monopolies will never be reformed by the Democrats or Republicans so the only remedy is for states to create their own local banks to loan to themselves without interests and spend into the state economies.
I think California could create a public non-debt bank backed by citizen silver deposits. However, it isn't what backs the money, but who controls the quantity of money the ultimately matters.
The banks don't care that their debt peons protest while Wall Street loots the national treasury and strips the last remaining wealth of the middle class. At this very moment the electoral voting system is being rigged for establishing one party rule by the Republican oligarchs.
Americans need to go for Wall Street's jugular--reform the monetary system by turning from private bank debt extortion and going instead to direct government issued debt free money in the form of public utility banks. Break the private banking monopolies!
