The Capitalist Conspiracy: An Insider View of International Banking, a film from 1972, offers us an intriguing historical perspective on our current financial crisis. Indeed some of the goals attributed to the "unknown government" of international bankers in the film can be seen to have been significantly consolidated in recent times.
Although inevitably dated in some respects, the film remains of interest, and quotes extensively from Caroll Quigley's fascinating book, Tragedy and Hope. Quigley offers a broadly sympathetic and candid insider perspective on the aims of the secretive elite.
Also noteworthy is the mention of "Col." Edward Mandel House, so called "guardian angel of the federal reserve," and principal advisor to Woodrow Wilson. House's work of political fiction, Philip Dru: Administrator, published in 1912, is interpreted as a thinly veiled self-portrait and describes how an influential group of insiders engineer a depression, and install their own President. Deliberately guiding the country to the brink of civil war eventually provides them with an excuse to establish a dictatorship.
