Here’s an older video brought to us by the BBC and History Channel, which talks about the role of international finance in the growth of Hitler’s Germany. It pays special attention to the role of banks in allied nations, especially Britain and America. What frightens me most isn’t the role of financial giants like the Chase Bank (Now JP Morgan/Chase) who recently got bailed out with billions of taxpayer dollars. But the really horrific thing is that many of those in the financial world who’d been fighting against it (and indeed got convictions after the war) ended up destroyed by McCarthyism.
