G. Edward Griffin and The Creature from Jekyll Island

The very first interview ever recorded for Jay Taylor’s radio show “Turning Hard Times Into Good Times” was with G. Edward Griffin. Recently, G. Edward Griffin was interviewed by Palisade Radio about the formation of a cartel on the world’s money supply at The Hard Asset Conference that took place in Jekyll  Island.

According to Palisade Radio, “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.

“Edward Griffin 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.

As the interviewer mentions, G. Edward Griffin’s book “The Creature from Jekyll Island” was one of the most influential book he ever read.  The same has been said by many other people that we have spoken to, so this is nothing new.
