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!

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

Debt: the First 5000 Years – a new book about an old problem

From David Graeber, the author:

=============

Hello, friendly strangers, I’m delighted to announce my new book….

———————————————

DEBT: THE FIRST 5000 YEARS

———————————————

is finally, finally out!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Debt-First-5-000-Years/dp/1933633867

This is a work of scholarship, and politically engaged, but it’s also an attempt to break out of the usual academic and activist ghettoes, and I wrote it that way because I think that there’s a conversation we need to be having, not just nationally but also globally, that we began to have for a few months after the financial crash of 2008, and which has, since, been indefinitely postponed.

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!

A Banking System We Can Trust (!?)

This article is written by two professors of economics at Boston University. Thus it does not address the “fuel” that flows through the economy. It is “watered down” by “credit money” for the benefit of the financial economy, while clogging up all activities of the real economy.

Making people responsible rather than companies is a good beginning and is part of the system that has evolved, mainly by design, relying and influencing human nature such that it is a call to our conscience, no matter where we stand – at the helm or in the wake of capitalist boats…
