The Real Tea Party Begins Here

Based on Ellen Brown's Web of Debt, with additional materials provided by the Public Banking Forum, this video--narrated by Bob Bows--begins with the Boston Tea Party, an uprising that really began because of the British government's efforts to prevent the American colonists from issuing their own money. The video examines Alexander Hamilton's efforts to create the Bank of the United States, and Thomas Jefferson's alarm at the private control of finance. It ends with a well-informed and passionate call for public banking as a way to re-assert state and local independence.
