I've always dismissed out of hand the view that the Jews controlled the world as the rantings of an anti-Semitic simpleton. I still think that is the case, however it does seem to be the case in my studies of history that this opinion was widely held before and after the depression, even by many intellectuals

The main criticism seems to be that Jews control the financial system, the idea being that capitalist society runs on private enterprise, and private enterprise requires banks to loan and print money, and the banks are supposingly owned by the Jews.

My interest is in what was the actual percentage of Jewish bank owners in the early 20th century, just before and after the depression.

Can't say I know, but the main reason for the whole "Jewish Banker" phenomenon is that Jews were often barred from doing most jobs, and the financial industry was one of the few that they weren't, so unsurprisingly they ended up disproportionately prominent there.

I'm sure you dismiss lots of things out of hand, the things you have been taught to dismiss out of hand.

Jewish bank ownership is concentrated in a very small number of historic families like the Rothschilds. Most bank ownership is publicly owned today.

Where the Jews have power most is in the United States and specifically in politics and media.
