The Monetary System

I have always been interested in where money come from, how it is made, and how the values of certain things fluctuate. In my spare time i have watched endless documentary's in an attempt to give myself some idea of how the monetary system works. Up until now I have found my self bouncing between two ideas. - That owners of the banking system are corrupt and simply create money in order to generate interest for themselves. - Values of money changes depending on the quantity availability and demand of products. Luckily for me I stumbled on this documentary which helped give me a much broader view of how money is created and distributed around the world. For anyone who is interested in how money works, who owns it and why we even need it, then this is the documentary for you.
