STOP #PRIVATEBANKS from printing #publicmoney as #publiccredit

This video was recorded when Martin Wolf, Chief Commentator at the Financial Times, addressed the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales and Positive Money.

Here’s one of his comments: Strip private banks of their power to create money.

In 2008 he published the book Fixing Global Finance.

His speech inspired me to send him this email:

Dear Mr Wolf

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!

CUTTING LOOSE: Russia Today on ‘Hungary Pays off IMF Debt’

This development in Hungary is a remarkable change of the tide. I analysed the 10 German articles that led to Hungary Sheds Bankers’ Shackles in the American Free Press.

What I find most interesting is:

  1. the ‘F U’ to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is accompanied by a media law – to report with ‘political balance’;
  2. the controversy in political circles includes the EU;
  3. most German mainstream media articles illustrate the lack of understanding of the creation of money, but hone in on highly charged emotive words;
  4. the English speaking mainstream media are silent;
  5. if only the UK Government had its electorate in mind, it would bring back the Bradbury Pound by the time of its 100th anniversary on 7 August 2014!

BRING BACK the Bradbury Pound! Towards 100th Anniversary of Historic Solution to end Britain’s crisis, austerity & corruption

13 07 03 Bradbury LogoBring Back the Bradbury Pound!

Countdown to 7th August 2014

100th Anniversary of Historic Solution

to end Britain’s ‘crisis’, austerity & corruption

There is a deep malaise affecting our country – something is clearly not right. To catch a criminal, a good policeman will always tell you to follow the money and to ask, cui bono – who benefits?

The network of private central banks led by the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, have taken control of the world’s money supply to achieve global governance on their terms – hardly beneficial for the human race.

The way to ‘stop and reverse’ is to ask: Continue reading

BRING BACK the Bradbury Pound – interest-free – backed by Public Credit – issued by The Treasury rather than Banks

Green Credit for Green Purposes was our proposal to the Treasury Select Committee in 2008 – ‘to do it electronically’.

But on 7 Aug 1914 the Private Secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer did it on paper: John Bradbury signed the Bradbury Pound – instead of borrowing money from private investors for the Government.

Justin R G Walker talks about it to Brian Gerrish of UK Column on this video and mentions the ‘credit of the Nation’.

Austin Mitchell MP has been tabling Early Day Motions along the Public Credit since 2002.   It sounds so simple and yet is so profound: Continue reading

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

When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss Art. When artists get together for dinner, they discuss Money – Oscar Wilde

LoveCurrencyWhat a great email – hopefully it went to lots of bankers, too!

When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss Art. When artists get together for dinner, they discuss Money – Oscar Wilde

Dear fellow Money or Artmoney colleague.

We all have heard that: “Money is the Root of all Evil”. In fact, this phrase has its origins in the Bible, which says: “For the Love of Money is the Root of all Evil.”

Somehow Love vanished with the passage of time. But what would happen if Love would return to the equation, and we would start asking ourselves: “What is the Root of All Money?”

Wouldn’t Love be a great answer?! Continue reading
