Congressman John Sherman of Ohio chairman of the Banking Committee, on the passage of the National Bank Note Act, wrote the agents of the Rothschilds in New York: "The Congress has passed your proposed Act, and it will become popular, and the people will accept it readily because it will look so much like Treasury Certificates. " That assertion is as true today as in the 70s when John Sherman wrote the letter. But following the panics of 1873, 1893, and 1907, when banks failed and depositors lost billions of "money" deposits, a committee was appointed, at the behest of the bankers, to make a study of banking and money.
It is Constitutional Admittedly so. Had we made change in 1933, and the Treasury had taken credit for $250 billion, we would not owe the $279,764,369,348 (as of February 28, 1956) bonds with the $10 billion annual interest payments. Banks would not hold gratis $1,750 billion in bank credit. We would have just the $279 billion new, and excess deposits which the $10 billion interest we now pay would cancel out in 25 years. As it is, we'll pay in interest the $279 billion and still owe the banks the $279 billion in bonds, along with the $1,750 billion they got in addition to the bonds.
There is a little story behind this, decision. We have been trying for years to get a bank on the wrong side of the river. The big uptown banks blocked us year after year because they didn't quite own the earth, and didn't want opposition, I believe it is called competition. Since the big boys control our Banking Commission, the commission sat and patiently listened to our plea for a bank charter, and would always say no. But you and I finally got the charter, and scraped up $200,000, with another $100,000 for surplus, and were soon in the banking business, and I mean the banking business in a big way.
