Did President Andrew Jackson really say that his greatest accomplishment as President was "I killed the bank"? He was referring to the "Second Bank of the United States", which was our country's second central bank. The American Dream animated short film blends history and economics to show how Central Banks, like the Federal Reserve, have been the den of financial evil doers for centuries.
The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you've been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day?

You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.YouTube / The American Dream Film --
