1810 Supreme Court rules, citing the Contract Clause of the Constitution in Fletcher v. Peck, the first ruling to overturn state law, that a contract can not be invalidated, even if the contract has been illegally secured.


In 1795, the Georgia state legislature passed a land grant awarding territory to four companies.

The following year, the legislature voided the law and declared all rights and claims under it to be invalid.

In 1800, John Peck acquired land that was part of the original legislative grant.

He then sold the land to Robert Fletcher three years later, claiming that the land sales had been legitimate.

Fletcher argued that since the original sale of the land had been declared invalid, Peck had no legal right to sell the land and thus committed a breach of contract.


Could the contract between Fletcher and Peck be invalidated by an act of the Georgia legislature?


The legislature's repeal of the law was unconstitutional under Article I, Section 10, Clause I (the Contract Clause) of the United States Constitution.

The majority concluded the sale between Fletcher and Peck was a binding contract, which under the Contract Clause cannot be invalidated even if it is illegally secured.

Panic of 1837 Moses Taylor* doubles his fortune as many Americans go bankrupt during an abrupt contraction of credit - more than half the business' in New York fail.

1844 Peel Banking Act recognizes the Bank of England as the central note-issuing authority, and as the lender of last resort.

"I have shown that our system is that of a single bank keeping the whole reserve under no effectual penalty of failure." - Walter Bagehot, Lombard Street: A Description of the Money Market, 1873

1846 In every country of the Temperate zone, the demand for British manufactured goods is much greater than can be paid for by exports.

To equalize this trade imbalance product has to be delivered on credit.

Without the extension of credit in the form of loans the ruling elites are unable to purchase the luxury goods they crave.

As prices paid for raw materials are unable to compete with prices paid for finished goods resource pirates easily expropriate resources.

It purchases all it wants, and the adverse balance of trade actually makes times better; for it causes the profits of the Money Power to be invested in the country, stimulating business activity.

The only disadvantage is the business investment does not belong to the nation but to the Money Power.

The prosperity created is not national prosperity but the bloated gains of the Money Power.

With export profits growing faster than import needs the mother country invests purchasing:

vast swaths of land connected to sea ports through railroads;

tropical plantations in Java and Ceylon for the growth of coffee, indigo, rice, opium, spices;

sheep ranches in Australia and South Africa;

cattle ranches throught North and South America;

sugar plantations in the West Indies and the Sandwich Islands;

tea plantations in China; ruby mines in Burma;

diamond mines in India, South Africa and Brazil;

lumber mills in Canada, Norway, Sweden and Poland;

factories, city houses, city building and city buildings in all countries.

gold and silver mines in California, the Rocky Mountains, Australia, Mexico and South America;

Newly mined gold and silver currency allows investment on a massive scale.

Through the Bank of England global trade is effectively monopolized.

1848 AT Stewart "Marble Palace" at 280 Broadway opens with a thousand clerks and twenty million dollars worth of a variety of goods on the shelves.

This is the birth of consumer culture in the United States.

Consumer culture refers to the theory modern human society is so strongly subjected to consumerism stresses that the centrality of purchasing goods and services is a cultural practice fostering many social behaviors.

1850 Construction on the Panama Railroad begins.

1853 Kansas City is planted as the outpost of Chicago, to take away the American trade of the Southwest from St. Louis and carry it to Chicago.

"If anyone wishes to see how these grand capitalists build up cities by the might of capital, curiosity will be gratified by observations in Kansas City.

Every suburb is planted, not by pioneers, as in other new towns, but by capitalists, who spend millions before they invite a settler.

A railroad is first built to the prospective town, the streets are graded, gas and water pipes installed, the sidewalks laid and then settlers are invited to make their homes in the new suburb." - L.B. Woolfolk

1855 Moses Taylor becomes president of National City Bank.

Panama Railroad, an interoceanic railroad, opens to traffic allowing cargo from England to be shipped to the West coast of the Americas without having to sail around the Cape of Good Hope.

1857 During the Panic of 1857, National City Bank purchases competitors.

Moses Taylor has an unlimited supply of cash for buying up distressed stocks as does George Peabody and Junius Spencer Morgan, JP Morgan's father.

Moses Taylor purchases nearly all the stock of Delaware Lackawanna Railroad for $5 a share, seven years later, it is selling for $240 a share.

"For such qualities of conservatism and purity, George Peabody, the old tree out of which the House of Morgan grew, was famous.

In the Panic of 1857, when depreciated securities had been thrown on the market by distressed investors in America, Peabody and the elder Morgan, being in possession of cash, had purchased such bonds as possessed real value freely, and then resold them at a large advance when sanity was restored." - Matthew Josephson, The Robber Barons 1934

"One of the high water marks of the successful Rothschild-Peabody Morgan business venture was the Panic of 1857.

It had been twenty years since the Panic of 1837: its lessons forgotten by eager investors anxious to invest the profits of a developing America.

The stock market operates like a wave washing up on the beach.

They coast along at the crest of the "Tide of Prosperity".

Suddenly the wave, having reached the high water mark on the beach, recedes, leaving all of the creatures gasping on the sand.

Another wave may come in time to save them, but in all likelihood it will not come as far, and some of the sea creatures are doomed.

In the same manner, waves of prosperity, fed by newly created money, through an artificial contraction of credit, recedes, leaving those it had borne high to gasp and die without hope of salvation." - Eustice Mullins

1859   Discovery of oil in Pennsylvania.

Americans embark in the new enterprise spending millions prospecting for oil and millions more bringing product of successful wells to market.

A railroad is built to the oil regions, but not built to the oil wells.

Its terminus is fifteen miles away.

A few wells are purchased and a pipe line corporation is organized.

A pipe line is laid from the wells purchased, out to the railroad, with steam engines stationed at intervals, to force onward the sluggish flow of oil.

Six thousand wagons are hauling oil over corduroy roads to the terminus.

Well owners hauling the oil in barrels can not compete with the pipeline.

The profits of oil barely cover expenses.

Individual well owners plug up their wells waiting for another railroad.

1860 Armed with immense capital the Money Power monopolizes vast lines of trade purchasing sustenance industries - improved farms, breweries, flour mills and meat packing.

Two-thirds of the tonnage leaving New York harbor is in American ships.

When the American commercial marine brought American product to a foreign port it received the fair market value with profits divided between the American producer, American merchant and the American ship owner.

1862 The Homestead Act

A homestead is a 160 acre rectangle, a quarter section, of public land in the West granted to any US citizen willing to settle on and farm the land for at least five years.

How the Feds Botched the Frontier Homestead Acts

1863 Britian realizes all profit beyond American shores..

Foreign shipping, mostly Great Britain, carries three-quarters of the trade.

"By the time the CSS Shenandoah lowered its flag, 715 American vessels had been transferred to the British flag to escape bankruptcy." - Lynn Schooler

1864 We know from the Irish famines, that a modern famine is not a dearth of food, so much as the lack of means to buy bread.

During an Irish famine, an American vessel entering the harbor of Cork with provisions sent by American charity to the starving Irish, met two vessels sailing out of the harbor laden with food sent to a foreign market.

The millions who have perished of hunger since the founding of the East Indies Company were the victims of the Money Power decreasing the value of labor and increasing the value of commodities.

With unlimited funds from "profitable investments" the Money Power made immense land investments in India purchasing the very rich delta lands along the streams of the alluvial plains of the Ganges and the Brahmaputra rivers which stretched from the sea to the foot of the Himalaya Mountains.

Offering the alternative of settling on the new plantations or starving the Indian became a race of serfs tilling the soil for subsistence wages.

Produce grown at starvation wages flooded world markets forcing down the price of products all over the Earth to the pauper standard of labor.

"The current money system obliges us to incur debt collectively, and to compete with others to obtain the means to trade." - Bernard Lietaer

"The man at whose house I boarded told me one day he had been rich, but had failed in business: he obtained support by taking boarders .

Misery loves company and the tall trees of the forest fell when I went down.

Why sir, not more than three or four business men in New York, who were prominent in business before the War, are in business now. They all failed.

Nobody knew what hurt them, business took new channels, their business left them and they went broke." - L.B. Woolfolk

"They are ceaselessly storing wealth that flows from the rest of the world .

Men in strange dresses speaking all manner of tongues are seen preparing luxuries for the Temple, which flow thither in long streams across the land.

And still the work of storing goes on: gold, silver, and all precious things, the delights of life, the cream of the Earth; good things accumulate higher and higher in the chambers of the Temple." - City of London, Blackwood, 1864

1870 John D. Rockefeller incorporates Standard Oil in Ohio.

John D. Rockefeller is financed by Kuhn &Loeb.

Chicago is becoming the railroad and business center for the Northwest.

It is the city best adapted to become the trade center of the country as St. Louis is already being operated by established American capital.

1871 The fire started at about 9:00 PM on Sunday, October 8, in or around a small shed that bordered the alley behind 137 DeKoven Street.

The mythical origin of the fire is that it was started by a cow kicking over a lantern in the barn owned by Patrick and Catherine O'Leary.

Michael Ahern, the Chicago reporter who penned the cow myth, admitted in 1893 that he had made it up because he thought it would make colorful copy.

A high wind prevailing at the time swept the flames through the center of the city, leaving a path of desolation three-fourths of a mile wide.

The business center of Chicago was reduced to ashes.

The business community had been doing business in cheap two-story houses.

Capital for large scale rebuilding could only be found in the City of London.

The Money Power dictated splendid structures, from 6 to 10 stories high, the upper stories of which could only be rented for offices or lodgings, be built.

When the Panic of 1873 occurred business was prostrate while renters were lacking for the upper stories then as payments could not be made mortgages were foreclosed on many of the grand Chicago business blocks.

1872 Standard Oil absorbs or destroys most of its competition in Cleveland in less than two months and later throughout the northeastern US.

Standard Oil crushes all competitors and takes possession of the entire oil industry of America establishing a monopoly.

Only the Texas oilmen survives outside the Standard Oil Trust due to an injunction issued against Standard Oil doing business in Texas.

1873 The New England textile mill owners have to sell their goods as cheap as the English goods are offered in the custom house, at one-tenth of a cent a yard below the cost of production.

They had to keep on running, even at a loss; for the delicate machinery, if suffered to lie idle for six months, would become lopsided and worthless.

New England textile mills continued to run on at a loss until they all failed.

"The Mills of New England first put me on the track of the Money Power.

Money Power had brought on the Panic of 1873, by the failure of Jay Cooke.

I was sure of engineering finance to suit their own interests." - L.B. Woolfolk

When A&W Sprague fails a tide of bankruptcy sweeps over New England.

The newspapers at the time are filled with bankruptcy notices.

For five years all business is crushed and lifeless.

As iron works fail Money Power buys mines, foundries and machine shops.

As lumber companies go broke they buy the mills and the forested lands.

A grand harvest of foreclosure of mortgaged property.

1877 Supreme Court decision of Munn vs. Illinois approves state laws to regulate prices charged to farmers for the use of the grain elevators.

After the Civil War the fluctuation in the price of lumber, the cuts in prices between different dealers is evidence of the war on independent lumber men.

The ownership of the railroads gave such an advantage to the Money Power in shipping their lumber to market that all competitors were crushed.

1878 If a mine proves to be rich, poorer levels near the surface are worked until the limited partners become discouraged and sell out their stock cheap.

If the mine proves to be a pocket, like the Emmy Mine, newspapers puff it until outsiders have bought the stock; then the true state is revealed.

1885 The Cotton Seed Oil Trust takes possession of the small American producers to manufacture bogus lard and cooking oils.

The American producers had sold cotton seed oil as light weight lubricating oil.

National Linseed Oil Trust of St. Louis is formed to protect linseed interests in the US.

A Sugar Trust takes possession of the sugar production and traffic.

A Cattle Trust takes possession of the cattle ranches, the raising of cattle and production of beef.

Trusts, each with millions of capital, began monopolizing production and traffic in salt, lead, cordage, nails, coke, lumber, sheet zinc, copper, crucible steel, and other products.

"Trusts" depress prices until competition is destroyed and increase the price of the articles they monopolize to whatever the market can bear.

Trusts war upon individual competitors is a war upon national prosperity.

Trusts are a conspiracy against the prosperity of any nation as they destroy individually enterprising men through the slow torture of financial ruin.

Cumulative individual loss strikes a blow to the heart of national prosperity.

1886 Supreme Court decision of Wabash vs. Illinois abolishes 230 state laws passed to regulate rates charged by the railroads, rates for use of the grain elevator and other laws passed to regulate corporations.

1888 Southern cotton syndicate is formed to subsidize the cotton market.

Southern cotton is delivered to the syndicate at offered price until syndicate capital is spent, then cotton sinks to one and one-half cents a pound.

57% of the cattle companies are broke and need operating capital.

They sell promises to deliver (futures) in order to obtain operating capital.

Cattle bought on the cheap with futures contract loans are resold wholesale for top dollar to meat packers at a considerable markup.

A Coffee Trust sets to work to destroy the coffee merchants.

The Money Power reduces the price of coffee to break competitors of the trust and as soon as this is accomplished the trust doubles the original price.

1911 The Standard Oil Trust is ruled illegal by the Supreme Court and fined $29,000,000 which is never paid.
