Here’s what others had to say:
This is an absolutely incredible insight into the rise of these banking families. Cannot wait to watch this with my children!!
Thank you for creating such masterpiece documentaries; you are the best doing so atm!!
You don’t understand how much I love your videos!! Give me so much inspiration to learn about these people. And the way you tell the stories as if they are superheroes, which some are or not, it doesn’t matter to me because it still gives me an all encompassing inspiration.
it’s so commendable how you brought us so smoothly from the family’s beginnings to present day. amazing production!
Top notch. Would love one on either the Medicis or the Borgias if possible. Thank you for the superb work you do!
I was waiting for the mention of their involvement in the creation of the Federal Reserve, under the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. But in so far information covered in the video more than satisfies the task to cover the families origins, their evolution, and current status as one of the worlds (or perhaps the worlds) most influential and wealthiest family. As always, very well done!
Very well done thank you. One of the main lessons I’ve learned from all these videos and all the powerful people around the world is build a business and consolidate when the opportunity arrives don’t shy away from it. In the Roth-Childs case they became powerful through war and expansion of empires. one book I recommend is the prince by Niccolò Machiavelli I’m sure mayor Roth-child read it. Again, thank you I voted for this video, and it did not disappoint.
Incredibly well done. A somber story with a background that is all too familiar. The common theme is if you want to amass an abundance of wealth you do it by profiting from war, human suffering, political infiltration and unbridled ruthlessness.
Mainstream media has nothing on you… Your channel is world class and unbelievably only getting better…
This family has been involved in every major international agreement for well over 100 years.
Enriched by war, conflict, division and the desperation of others… sounds about right.
The Rothchilds were also involved in South African gold mining in Johannesburg (Transvaal Republic/ZARP), not sure about diamond mining at Kimberley where Cecil John Rhodes made his first fortune, before going to the goldfields of Transvaal.
When people work together and play long game, many things are possible. Nearly everyone I’ve met plays short game and aligns only with themselves. I see this in business all the time. It’s maddening.
Kindly dont focus on only Americans great entrepreneurs, I am from Nigeria and trust me this documentaries about business and capitalism are inspiring people around the world.
I was half-expecting to see some crackpot, conspiracy video, but instead it was a fabulous, well-researched and well-presented video. In fact it’s the best video on the Rothschilds that I’ve seen. If your other videos are half as good as this one I will really enjoy them.
The most important event in the Rotchilds careere was conveniently forgotten. Purchasing approx 90% of London’s Stock Market by spreading misinformation about the outcome of Waterloo battle 1815.
ALL the countries in the world save for two or three small insignificant countries have Rothschild controlled central banks. I highly encourage everyone to please watch the important documentaries, America: Freedom to Fascism, Capitalism A love story by Michael Moore, Confessions of a Economic Hitman, Freekanonics, The Secret of Oz, and Zeitgeist Addendum.
