Wild And Crazy 2011: 10 History-Shattering Events That Have Shaken The Financial World To The Core

2011 has already had more history-shattering events than almost any other year since World War 2.  Revolutions have swept the Middle East and much of Africa, a new war has erupted in Libya, Japan has experienced an unprecedented tsunami and a horrific nuclear crisis, the price of oil is skyrocketing, multiple nations in Europe are experiencing a financial meltdown and budget issues have pushed the U.S. government to the verge of a shutdown.  In past years, it always seemed like there was time to “catch our breath” between each major crisis, but now huge events are striking in rapid-fire succession.  We live at a time when wars, rumors of wars, natural disasters, bizarre occurrences and major financial problems are becoming so common that they hardly shock us anymore.  2011 truly has been one wild and crazy year, and the world is literally being transformed right in front of our eyes.

Glenn Beck And The Federal Reserve

Last Friday, Glenn Beck did an entire show on the Federal Reserve.  It had been a highly publicized show and many people were wondering how Beck was going to handle the subject.  Well, to his credit, the show actually contained a lot of truth and it was definitely anti-Federal Reserve.  Was the show perfect and 100% accurate?  No, not by a long shot.  But for a big name personality like Glenn Beck on a big cable network like Fox News to do an hour long show on why the Federal Reserve is bad is a very big deal.  Many of us in the alternative media have spent a lot of time bashing the mainstream media (and rightly so), but when someone does something right, we should applaud them for it.  The Federal Reserve was the topic for the entire show, and Beck and his guests discussed the creation of money, debt, the history of banking and the current financial problems of the United States.  Glenn Beck even had G. Edward Griffin on the show.  That was huge.  There is not usually much on the mainstream news worth getting excited about, but in this case Glenn Beck’s show on the Federal Reserve was a very good step forward, and hopefully more mainstream news programs will begin to feel comfortable with taking an honest look at the Federal Reserve.
