Mr. Griffin discusses the room at the resort on Jekyll Island where the Federal Reserve system was first created. It was planned on a privately owned island and club at the turn of the last century. Only the most powerful and politically connected people could come here. People like the Rockefellers, the J.P. Morgan’s and their business associates. This is the place where it all began; these people needed to come to a place like this where they would not be observed. There was a lot of secrecy involved in the meeting because they were trying to hide their plans to control the banking system of the United States.
Edward never took much interest in money and banking until he found out about the secrecy involved. He used to believe you could trust your government. When he found out about the secrecy, he wanted to investigate and find out what exactly they were hiding. That’s how he began to write his book back in 1994. His book “The Creature from Jekyll Island” is now in its fifth edition and 41st printing and has been translated into several languages.
Edward says the history in the book has turned out to be pretty accurate. It’s reasonably comprehensive, and there have been very few corrections over the years. He’s tried to update the book over the years as new information has come to light.
He discusses how there is so much knowledge out there and that life is too short to learn it all.
