Public Sector Debts and their Absurdity

 

English: HM Treasury Crest

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!

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!

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.

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…
