Saturday Matinee: 97% Owned


97% owned present serious research and verifiable evidence on our economic and financial system. This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process.

When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it’s essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down?

Political philosopher John Gray, commented, “We’re not moving to a world in which crises will never happen or will happen less and less. We are in a world in which they happen several times during a given human lifetime and I think that will continue to be the case.”

If you have decided that crisis as a result of the monetary system is not an event you want to keep revisiting in your life-time then this documentary will equip you with the knowledge you need, what you do with it is up to you.

  1. One of my favorite films. So many people don’t understand where money really comes from and this documentary explains it in quite a clear way.

  2. The federal reserve creates money out of thin air, and the economy is debt based. The paper money issued represents legal promissory notes that are essentially worthless – as compared to real assets such as gold, silver, oil, etc. – and backed by nothing more than a conditioned public perception the paper represents a financial asset. But, do they teach this in America’s public schools? No, they surely do not!
