The Secret of Oz – Everything You Never Knew About Money

It is well known in economics academia that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz written by L. Frank Baum in 1900 is loaded with powerful symbols of monetary reform.

The yellow brick road (gold standard), the emerald city of Oz (greenback money), even Dorothy’s silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were the symbol of Baum’s belief that adding silver coinage to gold would provide much needed money to a depression-strapped, 1890s America.

We believe Baum’s symbols represent the only solution to relieve the growing economic hardship here in America – and the rest of the world.

  1. You know, I’ve read quite a bit about this cyclical economic history/central bank
    issue and frankly find some of the reasoning a bit confusing and contradictory.
    Ron Paul and Jerome Smith, and the Austrian economists he mentions in his book
    “The Coming Currency Collapse” seem to assert that a gold standard has kept the
    economies of nations using it quite sound and that fiat money has brought the down
    fall of them all soon or late when they departed from the practice. Yet you seem
    to be of the persuasion of Mr. Bryan the populist who cautioned about crucifixion
    on a ‘cross of gold’!

    I would also respectfully add (though I found your two hour presentation unusually long for the average that I’ve viewed quite informative and
    well presented) that as one who has studied symbolism and metaphysics in depth
    during my forty years of study, I find the example you use to extract allegory for
    these economic issues a little too arcane for the average person. Did your parents
    discuss the hidden symbolism in the Wizard of Oz when you viewed it as a minor?

    I think you would have been better advised to use the 1937 movie ‘My Africa’ with
    Robert Taylor and Barbara Stanwyck concerning the assassination of President
    William McKinley (Did he ever make the kinds of critical statements about central
    banks that Lincoln and Garfield did? Perhaps you could educate me on that because
    he certainly met the same fate as they?) who has assigned a naval officer to probe unexplained bank ‘robberies’ in the midwest. The average Joe would have much less difficulty discerning the obvious allusions to american banking improprieties in this movie, shown on TMC with Robert Osborn as host last night at exactly a half hour after I viewed this video, than wandering through the hopeless maze of symbols
    you and your commentators seem to feel exists in the wizard movie classic.

    And what about our title character played by the affable Frank Morgan, he seems
    to go unnoticed and un-deciphered by you? Who or whom does he represent in
    your symbology?

    At any rate, the folks who have been running the banking cartels since the middle
    of the 19th century whose family name you fail to mention, the offsprings of Moses
    Amschel Bauer’s litter who Lord Byron wrote so elegantly beyond symbols but in
    rhythmic verse described:

    Who hold the balance of the world?
    Who reign O’er congress, whither royalist or liberal?
    Who rouse the shirtless patriots of Spain?
    Who keep the world both old and new, in pain or pleasure?
    Who makes politics run glibber all?
    The shade of Bonaparte noble daring?
    Jew Rothschild and his fellow Christian Baring!
    George Gordon Byron, (1788-1824)

    How sad, so little of the truth spoken in history is taught to young minds in this
    country and in the world which seems now to have acquired a selective memory problem concerning historical fact, whether it is liked or not! How sad, indeed!
