Did you know that the well-loved American fairytale The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is more than just a tale of a girl with ruby slippers tripping down a yellow brick road? I loved that book when I was a kid–I remember watching my older sisters playing munchkins in school musical when I was still in kindergarden. I can still be heard belting out Ding Dong the Witch is Dead at inopportune moments–but the allegory was news to me until I read Ellen Brown’s book Web of Debt.
