Financing the Road to Ruin
by Joseph Plummer
A good way to describe this book is to say that it is a mini version of
The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve, by
G. Edward Griffin. Plummer has done an excellent job of condensing that larger work (plus information from many other sources) into only 172 pages, and that makes it especially valuable for those approaching the topic of fraudulent money and banking for the first time.
