WE DEMAND that the British Government Issues through its Treasury Debt-Free and Interest-Free Money – as it did in 1914!

13 07 03 Bradbury LogoThe Bradbury Pound in 1914 is the model for what more and more people are waking up to:

  1. banks create ‘money’ from thin air as Credit and charge interest for it;
  2. central banks lend it to governments – at interest – as national or public debt – as ‘public spending borrowing requirement’;
  3. governments have gradually handed over their monetary sovereignty and seignorage to the City;
  4. the myths surrounding money are being perpetuated by teaching institutions such as the London School of Economics which does not teach what ‘money’ is or who has the power to create it and how:
  • the difference between interest-free Cash and interest-bearing Credit.

This ‘Writ of Mandamus‘ is a fresh approach to get the Government to act in the public interest (not just pay lip service).

It deserves support in any shape and form!

We demand that the British Government issues through its Treasury debt-free and interest-free money

……..as it did in 1914!

OVERT MONETARY FINANCING or ‘Helicopter Money’ Policies – Lord Turner is waking up?


Anatole Kaletsky
writes about the 46-page speech that Lord Turner, Chairman of Britain’s Financial Services Authority gave at the Cass Business School on 6th February 2013.

Positive Money writes Adair Turner tumbles to the merits of a Positive Money idea.

In 2008, I had been advised by a human rights lawyer to ‘go for Parliamentary scrutiny via the Treasury Select Committee‘. Since the Treasury Select Committee had just announced their inquiry into climate change, we submitted Green Credit for Green Purposes.

Since 2002, Austin Mitchell MP has been tabling Early Day Motions to address exactly this: ‘overt monetary financing’ – but under a different label: public credit.

You can really tell from this speech how “the Religion of Money” has won over the Lost Science of Money, as men struggle with: whom to follow and whether to be for or against the ‘current consent’:-

  • a virtually surefire method of stimulating economy activity exists today and that politicians and central bankers can no longer treat it as taboo: ‘newly created money should be handed out to the citizens or governments;
  • distribute free money to end deep recessions;
  • quantitative easing for the people;
  • overt monetary financing (OMF) or “helicopter money” as ‘permanent monetisation of government debt and ‘extreme option’ in ‘extreme circumstances’.

Strangely, Lord Turner associates ‘inflationary risks’ and ‘printing money’ with Germany: the Bundesbank, Goethe’s Faust and the devil itself: Mephistopheles. Continue reading

Public Sector Debts and their Absurdity

 

English: HM Treasury Crest

English: HM Treasury Crest (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Social Credit is the antithesis to Public Debts.

The Absurdity of the National Debt was already published by the then Duke of Bedford in 1947 but didn’t make a difference.

To the contrary: the dependency of Governmental budgets on Public Sector Borrowing Requirements (PSBR) kept increasing over the decades. In other words: Governments continue to sanction public debts for vested interest payments.

This chart published by the Economic Research Council shows the absurdity in nowadays terms, covering 2010 – 2060 in five different population scenarios.

Budgets 1999 - 2012

This chart covers the past years since 1999, when HM Treasury started to publish budgets in a similar way every year.

“Interesting” how the interest costs rose above the defence costs in the 2008 crisis when ‘other’ costs began the ‘austerity cuts’…

The difference that the national debt makes is the amount of vested interest payments!

Five Alternatives to the Federal Reserve: why the sun will still rise without the Federal Reserve system

This article is a neat summary of alternatives to ‘debt based’ money, created ‘from thin air’, and unscrupulously ‘sold’ as ‘money’, as if it were Cash, minted by Nation States, when, in fact, it comes from private bank(st)ers.

 

Issuing Money: a ‘Unique’ Form of ‘Terrorism’!?

The New York SUN has published an interesting Editorial on March 20, 2011:A ‘Unique’ Form for ‘Terrorism’, comparing Bernard von NotHaus who has been coining the Liberty Dollar (site removed due to Court Order!) with Ben Bernanke the boss of the Federal Reserve.

Von Nothaus wanted to bring our monetary system on trial. Now the verdict of the jury is “a lesson in the difficulties of illuminating the illogic of our monetary system”…

When will “it” be common knowledge and generally understood???

Mervyn King’s view on ‘the new politics’

This blog entry by Channel 4 economics editor Faisal Islam indicates how the Bank of England pulls the real financial strings behind the political scene and how the City of London runs Westminster and thus the country, not to say the world.

If only it was common knowledge that

1. the first national debt was established in 1694 by setting up the Bank of England; see http://bit.ly/aNRGPw; it resulted in a general debt-based economy world-wide

2. the purpose of the crisis was revealed by the 10-year budget analysis and the “kink” in 2008; see http://bit.ly/aGrAbn

3. there are fundamental differences between the Bank of England’s “quantitative easing” http://bit.ly/cVPxOJ and the Treasury “printing money”: interest, aka vested interests of greed and unaccountability.

May more and more people wake up and understand

  • a Nation’s money supply is fuelled from a number of sources
    • central banks
    • banks and other financial institutions
  • a Government’s budget is only a certain share of the whole of the supply – generally around 40%
  • governments issue money as Cash aka M0,
  • but they “prefer” to borrow, pay interest and charge taxes – for the benefit of bank(st)ers who issue money as Credit out of thin air and charge interest for it….

Follow the money and welcome to hopefully a new level of disillusionment!
