This paper examines how a Federal Reserve conspiracy theory booklet, Billions or the Bankers, Debts for the People, can be used at the end-of-the-semester in a money and banking course. Readings such as this one are commonly available from various distributors and also exist on various web sites. Much of the knowledge and many of the economic concepts learned during the semester can be applied to this and similar readings to explain how much of these conspiracy readings are based on fact, and how some creative thinking along with the facts can create these conspiracy theories.
