Money is at the root of our social and economic crisis. A debt-based monetary system that gives private banks the power to create money from nothing. Then millions of ordinary people suffer when money and finance systems breaks down.

The monetary reform documentary  97% Owned features interviews and commentary from economists, campaigners and former bankers

Back in the 1930s, Henry Ford is supposed to have remarked that it was a good thing that most Americans didn’t know how banking really works, because if they did, “there’d be a revolution before tomorrow morning”
