The Secret of Oz: Solutions for a Broken Economy (DVD)
Product Description The United States is headed for a deep depression, warns a new film from the maker of "The Money Masters" – unless lawmakers address the root of the problem: mounting interest payments on the national debt.
Could the solution to America's economic troubles be encoded in the pages of L. Frank Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"?
The Secret of Oz, revealed ...
It is well known in economics academia that "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" – written by Baum in 1900 – is loaded with powerful symbols of monetary reform which were the core of the Populist movement and the 1896 and 1900 presidential bids of Democrat William Jennings Bryan.
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 symbols of Baum and Bryan's belief that adding silver coinage to gold would provide much-needed money to a depression-strapped, 1890s America.
In "The Secret of Oz" you'll learn how to decode these symbols to unveil the solution to growing economic hardship here in America – and around the world.
