Little Brother re-imagines George Orwell's classic, dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, as a modern cyberpunk thriller for a young adult audience.

You will then see how FICO works and that the Federal Reserve is owned by private banks. Ever wondered why credit cards are issued to freshman college students in America? In europe and asia, you need to demonstrate your ability to repay credit (either with assets or a job) even before you could get your paws on a credit card.

The financial industry is too large to be regulated, they regulate themselves. In the US, if you are rich and powerful, you can lobby for any laws to be put in place.
