Cartoon: The American Dream

http://www.youtube.com

Awesome animation explaining the FED and fractional reserve banking. It's 30 minutes long and well worth the watch! After watching it, I'd say it is pretty much a summary of a documentary made in 1996 called "The Money Masters", of which can be seen by searching for it on google video. Although a bit longer (3 hrs) its also worth the watch.

Bitcoin P2P Cryptocurrency

http://www.bitcoin.org

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network based anonymous digital currency. Peer-to-peer (P2P) means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions. Instead, these tasks are managed collectively by the nodes of the network. Anonymity means that the real world identity of the parties of a transaction can be kept hidden from the public or even from the parties themselves.

National Debt: The Apocalypse Overdraft

http://www.cracked.com

The national debt is currently 13.7 trillion dollars (you can round up to 14 if you ignore that piddling little GDP of Denmark). The American people could work together, movie-montage style, collecting every single physical dollar and cent in existence and they'd still have to go to Vegas*, hit the roulette tables, lay it all on black and win. Four times in a row. That's how you know you're doomed - most people crushed by debt imagine cleaning up at the casino OR having all the money in the world. When you need both, you're buggered.
