Mention Jekyll Island, Georgia, and the ears of anyone familiar with the Federal Reserve Bank will perk up. For those who might have missed the story, this is where a secret meeting of powerful banking interests met in 1910 to plan for a central bank in the US.
It was a small group — only seven men. But they represented financial powerhouses such as Rothschild, J. P. Morgan, and Rockefeller. As a testimony to the power these men and the financial empires their represented wielded, in 1914 Congress passed the legislation that brought Federal Reserve Bank into existence.
In March of 2016, another group of powerful interests met at Jekyll Island, this time under the auspices of the American Enterprise Institute. What was their agenda? More on page two.
