Understanding the rigging and wrecking of a money system is simple.

Understanding the rigging and wrecking of a money system is simple.
A giving of something (Goods or work services) for nothing expected in return is a gift.
Taking something by force is raid or slavery, not swap trade.
A swap trade of things on the spot at the same time is a barter trade. It normally involves a haggle over value (Who gets how much for what). It is clunky due the double coincidence of wants.
The need to find a trader that wants what you have and haves what you want, before a swap trade can happen. It makes producing perishables for trade very risky.
A swap trade of things with part being provided first, with an agreement that the other part will be provided by the other party at a later time, is a contract of credit. It normally involves a haggle over value and an assessment that the later payment party can be trusted and has the ability to complete their end of the deal (Creditworthiness).
A record of the outstanding IOU part of a contract of credit, can be done in various ways. In the heads of the traders. On coins, paper or tokens was predominant in old times. In modern times written on paper or in a computer has become predominant. Anything but in the heads of traders are the physical representations of credit.
When credit becomes involved the swap trade has evolved from a barter trade into a money system for trade.
If a money system grows beyond two traders and the physical representation of the outstanding IOU parts of credit , are allowed to become transferable among traders, they evolve into currency.
The money system then evolves into one with credit and currency having two distinctive roles, as a means of exchange for swap trade.
It removes the clunkiness of the double coincidence of wants, as traders can exchange goods for currency that they can then wait to redeem (purchasing power) at a later time, with more choice.
It makes the production and trade of perishables less risky.
The greater the number of parties within a money system, in order to keep it honest and as useful as possible, an administration is required, to ensure that something real was provided into the money system for every unit of currency in circulation. That the means of payment of the IOU portion physically exists in a trustworthy and sustainable way.
That every unit of currency is extinguished from circulation when it is finally redeemed for the outstanding owed value of the credit contract it represents(Credit clearing house).
Secondly it acts as a focal point for credit match making, for traders within the money system, with things surplus to their own needs, who are seeking other traders in the same situation.
It is essentially an old fashioned trading post with a modern innovation of a money system to make things easier.
Things get out of whack if the administration fails to keep the system honest or the administration itself becomes dishonest.
No matter who is administering the system, private - state or religion, if anyone is able to sneak currency into the system, of which the first part of the credit deal was never provided to the money system or obtain credit without any intent or means to complete their part of the deal (Counterfeit Credit), then successfully pass it off as legitimate purchasing or lending power, they will illegitimately monopolise the the real wealth of the system by fraud and eventually destroy value and faith in the system.
At present the money systems within, or involving groups of nations, are so far removed from the base fundamentals of money, counterfeit of credit so prevalent, that the level of inequality is evolving into violent struggle between honest participants frustrated at why ends do not meet for them, and the counterfeiters trying to keep control of and divert attention away from the imperialist pyramid control fraud they have built.

Iain Parker TPPA Submission to New Zealand Parliament Select Committee - sent 9 March 2016

Full submission as sent;
Submission to Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Select Committee from Iain Parker in regards to International treaty examination of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA)

I would like to register my evidence supported allegation that the TPPA will not deliver the path to overcoming New Zealand's ongoing chronic historical current account deficit that proponents of it are claiming.

I would like to speak to the committee.

TPPA does not address or even mention the greatest unworthy-unwarranted tariff any society can suffer.

Tariff
A tax imposed on goods and services. Tariffs are used to restrict trade, as they increase the price of goods and services, making them more expensive to consumers.

The TPPA does not address or even mention the tariff of the entire currency in circulation or savings within a societies money system being originated as a loan of interest charged credit owed to lenders outside of that society.

This is the on the record from official documents admitted case in New Zealand and many other societies - that adds much unworthy-unwarranted cost to the day to day living of citizens within those societies and acts as a barrier to fair trade.

These societies have been conned into thinking they need to take the natural resources they possess to an outsider pawn broker to fund development within them - when they most certainly - if they fully understood the fundamentals of money as a system - never needed to.

Money is a system in which credit and currency play very distinct roles within a money system.

If a swap of labour or goods is able to be done immediately on the spot without any part of the deal requiring to be recorded or remembered (credit) as needing to be completed at a time in the future - the realm of money system has not been entered.

If a contract of credit is agreed to for part of a swap of goods or services needed to be completed at a time in the future you enter the realms of a money system.

When the contract of credit is recorded it is a promissory note.

When more than two peoples enter a money system and start accepting promissory notes as transferable IOU's among members of the money system you have 'currency'.

At that point you need to introduce a 'clearing house of credit' role within the money system to keep an eye out that there is a fundamental basis to all credit and currency within the money system.

Because if anyone is able to turn up with currency with no fundamental credit basis (counterfeit credit) and con the other members of the money system into accepting it as legitimate purchasing or lending power - the counterfeiters will eventually enslave the other members of the money system via systemic mercantile imbalance (pyramid fraud) that if left unimpeded then puts unsustainable pressure in people and the environment (Ponzi Pyramid Fraud).

I contest that there is a mountain of credible evidence from on the record official documents that confirm that the present colonial era money system funding structures that New Zealand still suffers are a ponzi pyramid fraud being orchestrated by criminals that lurk within international high finance and that the economic executive among the political & media social protection agencies of New Zealand society are turning a collective blind eye to the on the record documented facts.

So without any further ado - in order to prevent the committee passing me over as a conspiracy theorist of no credible substance I present as my first - so to speak - 'expert witness' ;

Here are the details of an email conversation between the Bill English New Zealand Minister of Finance Office and a New Zealand citizen in regards to an article about money system funding structures they had read in a newspaper.

Subject: Money Creation

Dear Bill English
As you are the minister of finance I recommend that you read this article which recently appeared in the Otaki Mail.
http://otakimail.co.nz/outside-the-box-challenging-convent…/
I expect you are aware that banks are allowed to create money from nothing and lend it out at interest. In the past most people in NZ were unaware or didn’t believe that banks did this. However, as more and more people now understand and are realizing that this is going on, I believe it is time to change legislation to stop this unlawful behaviour. Money should be created for public good to facilitate trade, and should not be under the control of private corporations to make a profit. As you are probably aware this current monetary system is the main reason why the world economy is in such crisis. It is time to change the system for the good of all people. If New Zealand takes the lead in this are the rest of the world will most likely follow, as people throughout the world have had enough of the corporate controlled system that is destroying our world and our communities. Please let me know when you intend to change the law so creation of money is under the control of the democratically elected government rather than private companies.
Yours sincerely
Anita Schurmann

Office of Hon Bill English
14 July 2015

Dear Anita Schurmann thank you for your email 4 June 2015 in which you raised concerns about the the Government allowing banks to create money on their own through the system of fractional reserve banking.

The system discussed in the article you refer to, is one that has been considered at times as the role of financial institutions has evolved. Irving Fisher suggested a possible structure and approach to your suggestion in the Chicago Plan, eighty years ago, and there are some theoretical advantages that may result from a system set up in this way, including better control of business cycle fluctuations.

However, the transition to such a system would be hugely coomplex and is inherently fraught with great risks. We would wnt increased certainty and evidence regarding the benefits before change could even be considered, and the luck of such a system in any developed market economies makes such evidence hard to obtain.

Equally, the current monetary system allows for the provision of credit, which serves a very important function in allowing people to smooth their consumption over time and allowing firms to invest in productive capital.

Finally, it is not entirely clear whether it would be possible to move to the system outlined in the 'Chicago Plan' without an intensive global shift in monetary regimes. If New Zealand were to be a first mover, it is unclear what the effects would be for trade and the exchange rate in a small, open economy.

Yours sincerely

Minister of Finance

Here is the article in full that is being discussed in the email exchange;

Outside the Box — challenging conventional thinking and offering new perspectives about our world

Let’s Change our Money-as-Debt Problem

By Amanda Vickers June 2015

You’d think that the most important aspect of a sovereign nation would be for its Government to have sole rights to issue its country’s money supply. But not so: this function has been appropriated primarily by privately owned banks. “Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.” — Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin (Q1, 2014)*

Our nation’s money comes in to existence through debt. As more money enters the economy, the more debt we have (Government or private). Counter-intuitively, what benefits the individual does not benefit the nation as a whole. In fact, if we all repaid all our loans, there would be 98% less money left in the economy because, as it turns out, only ~2% of our nation’s money supply is issued by the RBNZ — as notes and coins.

So there you have it. Banks create our nation’s money supply when credit is drawn (monetized), destroy money when loans are repaid, and profit immensely from the interest charged on the loans. Most bank profit is obtained from the difference between interest we pay for these loans (created credit) and the interest they pay out for the corresponding deposits. The four big banks in NZ were making record profits in 2014, with ~4.3 billion dollars heading offshore to Australia and beyond. This is hard-earned New Zealander’s money leaving our real economy, and being transferred to the private banking sector.

Sovereign money advocates term this concept “economic rent” and claim that private banks, seeking to maximise profits, shouldn’t be “renting” money to Government, businesses and citizens of a free, sovereign country. This growing money supply and these growing debts are also secured by NZ’s assets, resources and labour force (you).

If we had a Government issued money supply requiring banks to have 100% reserves for money they lend, we would see dramatic improvements in our economy. We could have both less debt and enough money to thrive. The International Movement for Monetary Reform proposes just this and has gathered a huge following since the 2008 global financial crisis.

This “sovereign-money” proposal proved itself when it was modeled by the International Monetary Fund**. Their analysis showed that the benefits of 100% reserve banking would be: dramatically reduced public and private (net) debt levels (because money creation no longer requires simultaneous debt creation), better control of business cycle fluctuations, complete elimination of bank runs, output gains of 10% and that inflation can drop to zero without posing problems for the conduct of monetary policy.

It is great the IMF analysis has concluded something that also seems intuitive and logical. Sovereign money advocates extrapolate further that the outcome would also be far reaching throughout our economy and our lives. They say it could also improve: the inequality gap, child poverty, housing bubble control, student debt, state asset sales, job security, local businesses performance (due to the 10% higher output gains), budgets for local community projects and facilities, health care and education.

It’s not a bad outcome for one law change: 100% reserve banking. The irony is that the law would change to how most people think it actually works now — where our Government issues the nation’s money supply. It simply requires updating the 1844 Bank Charter Act, which forbade banks from printing notes. If only they’d included something to prevent ledger balance accounting tricks, creating credit — which they have done to this very day!

One obstacle is the general lack of understanding about how the monetary system really works by both the public and many politicians. There is also a fair amount of inertia and political resistance to the reform. The change is a big one, so is therefore daring and challenging. Some politicians fear sovereign money because it may affect NZ’s Standard and Poor’s (S&Ps) credit rating. S&Ps may mistrust the Government thinking they would simply issue too much money too easily, causing an inflationary crisis, creating a currency devaluation, which would in turn affect trade.

Realising the importance of “why” we should address a problem, motivates people to find the “how”. Money reform advocates found it was not rocket science. Their solution could work in much the same way that the RBNZ independently oversees monetary policy now. A democratic, transparent and accountable body (Monetary Policy Committee) could independently separate the function of money issuance from money spending. They would be tasked with the role private banks have now: creating and destroying the nation’s money supply. This could be done exactly as needed — debt free — within inflationary limits. Our government would also have greater control over where and how our money is spent, and would be able to steer the economy with greater precision.

Here’s a thought: if this scenario was already the status quo, and it was now proposed to turn our nations’ money supply over to commercial corporations (banks), whose mandate it is to maximise profit, as debt-based money, there would be pandemonium on the streets!

Money is an abstract concept — designed by humans to serve humanity’s needs. Let’s make it do this well. It is not a law of nature to have a debt-backed money system: it can be redesigned. The present design is not working well, and as Albert Einstein said, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.

Please support politicians embracing sovereign money and share this information — an excellent source of further material is Positive Money NZ (www.positivemoney.org.nz), the NZ chapter of the International Movement for Monetary Reform (www.internationalmoneyreform.org).
*(“The reality of how money is created today differs from the description found in some economics textbooks. Money creation in practice differs from some popular misconceptions — banks do not act simply as intermediaries, lending out deposits that savers place with them, and nor do they ‘multiply up’ central bank money to create new loans and deposits.” — Bank of England. However, the result is similar: when making loans, new money enters the economy, whichever method one has been taught)

So I would hope I may now have gained your attention?

If you already knew of the shortcomings of the colonial era money system funding structures that we still suffer in our nation and that there exists viable alternatives worthy of consideration – yet go on to support a contractual agreement that entrenches deeper into law the clear and evident pyramid fraud aspects of the nations colonial era money system funding structures that we still suffer – your motives have to be questioned.

If you do not fully understand the impact upon society of the present colonial money system funding structures that we still suffer – but are thinking of voting to sign New Zealand into TPPA based upon some blind faith ransom demand response to threats of economic isolation from the post World War 2 'club of nations' to whom we belong – please examine the following very thoroughly.

The Truth About Banking: Former Top Regulator Speaks Out

Adair Turner's book challenges the belief that private credit is essential to growth and fiat money is inevitably dangerous. The author argues that debt needs to be taxed as a form of economic pollution because most credit is not needed for economic growth and just drives real estate booms and busts and leads to financial crisis and depression. The author also debunks the big myth about fiat money—the erroneous notion that printing money will lead to harmful inflation. He believes that policy makers need to monetize government debt and finance fiscal deficits with central-bank money to overcome the mess that is created by past policy errors.

I learned that a lot of what we practiced in finance through no ill intent, this is unrelated to the financial crisis, and the ethical challenges of the financial system, but that the system itself is designed to propel growth in the economic system with no regard to the physical boundaries of the planet and with little regard to the social criteria, social constraints of human well being and so it struck me that a lot of the symptoms that we talk about such as climate change obviously being on top of everyone’s agenda, but ecosystem degradation, soil degradation, biodiversity loss. All of these issues are symptoms of an economic system that is essentially bumping into the boundaries of the biosphere, and if you think about finance and even our money system, which is built on a money system which is created through expanding money that has interest associated, so as the money supply grows the requirement to service money grows at a compound rate. That forces at a systemic level the economy to continue growing which if the economy is related to material throughput eventually creates this conflict with the boundaries of the biosphere. So its been a very profound realisation and what I have discovered is that there are an increasing amount of people thinking about this question, but its very much outside the halls of conventional economics and very much new economic thinking.”

Born in 1939, Chicago, Illinois, USA is research professor of Economics at University of Missouri, Kansas City (UMKC). He is also a Wall Street analyst and consultant as well as president of The Institute for the Study of Long-term Economic Trends (ISLET) and a founding member of International Scholars Conference on Ancient Near Eastern Economies (ISCANEE).

Economic advisor to the U.S., Canadian, Mexican and Latvian governments, to the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), and he is president of the Institute for the Study of Long-term Economic Trends (ISLET).


[9.00] Back in the 1960s, I ( Michael Hudson )was Chase Manhattan Bank’s balance of payments analyst, and my job was to focus on the Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, and my job was to calculate how much of a balance of payments surplus they could generate, and the idea of the bank marketing department was the entire economic surplus could be used to pay debt service to the seven major Americam banks.

[9:40] And pretty quickly we found out that there wasn’t any surplus to pay the banks, and there was an international department that got very upset because he said “Look, I get promoted for making loans, and the real estate guys are making all the loans, you’re telling us they can’t afford to repay!” And he took it up to David Rockefeller, we went across the street to the Federal Reserve bank, and the Federal Reserve bank said “It’s in America’s interest to make these loans to Latin America. Mr. Hudson, according to your calculations, Britain can’t afford to replay any more.” “That’s right. I don’t see any way in which it can get the money to repay the debt.” And the Federal Reserve man said “Ah! But did you take into account the fact that the US Treasury is always going to lend Britain the money to pay? We will never let it go down.” I said, “Well, that’s a deus ex machina from outside the system. Yes, you can lend them the money to repay.”

William Black jailed 1000 odd bankers in the US back in 1980's when they committed the same crimes they did during the 2008 global mass counterfeit credit crisis - for which hardly any of the frauds have been brought to justice.

Which is the prime cause of the massive inequality in the world that is now leading to massive civil unrest.

Universal Public Credit Public Policy Submission
To whom it may concern,
Attempting to form public policy for equal economic opportunity of all citizens without a full knowledge of the function of money as invented and intended - that this submission details - is doing so by looking at 1/3 of a many piece puzzle forced together in frustrated confusion - thinking its complete - when 2/3 of the picture needed in the middle to make clear sense of it all - is in-fact one large piece that has been hidden by a self serving few to steal from wider society under false pretenses.


The New Zealand Money System De-Fib Documentary - Giving a jolt to the heart of an ailing democracy.

A global economy based more upon thieving & killing of many for the profits of a few - than sharing & caring for the greater common good of humanity within boundaries of sustainable resources - I contest is a cancerous tumor threatening the survival of the progress of learned behaviours of common decency over self destructive animal instincts - is in great need of the checks and balances detailed in this article linked below for the very same reasons evidenced in the article;


Please Committee - Once taking in the evidence from 'expert witnesses' of the highest order above - please then read the summaries of the financial regulation related chapters of TPPA written by the US Trade Representatives displayed below – then please explain to the people of New Zealand just how – under such terms and conditions of colonial era money system funding structure that we still suffer – that growth can ever exceed the cost of debt that we are forced to take on to try and achieve the growth? If you can not – you should not be voting for the TPPA and I contest it is clear and evident the contract contains financial system Trojan horses from which further financial parasites will emerge;

William Black
A financial system regulator of the highest knowledge and integrity who knows what needs to be kept an eye on.

William Black jailed 1000 odd bankers in the US back in 1980's when they committed the same crimes they did during the 2008 global mass counterfeit credit crisis - for which hardly any of the frauds have been brought to justice.

Which is the prime cause of the massive inequality in the world that is now leading to massive civil unrest.

There are also my own articles in regards the impact of criminal banking sector activity upon New Zealand - helped very much by having discovered and followed the works of the above linked banking insiders turned reform advocates for over a decade now;

Universal Public Credit Public Policy Submission
To whom it may concern,
Attempting to form public policy for equal economic opportunity of all citizens without a full knowledge of the function of money as invented and intended - that this submission details - is doing so by looking at 1/3 of a many piece puzzle forced together in frustrated confusion - thinking its complete - when 2/3 of the picture needed in the middle to make clear sense of it all - is in-fact one large piece that has been hidden by a self serving few to steal from wider society under false pretenses.

A global economy based more upon thieving & killing of many for the profits of a few - than sharing & caring for the greater common good of humanity within boundaries of sustainable resources - I contest is a cancerous tumor threatening the survival of the progress of learned behaviours of common decency over self destructive animal instincts - is in great need of the checks and balances detailed in this article linked below for the very same reasons evidenced in the article;

Leave them the power to write credit with only the flick of a pen and they write enough for themselves to make debt slaves of you again.

Any government in the world facing the impossible funding puzzle, that is the result of having the interest bearing loans of credit, of privately owned institutions, that are owned by a largest shareholding few, being the way in which your entire central currency is originated – please take note of the warnings from two people who once were at the highest levels of this private banking sector pyramid fraud, before attempting to warn the world of it, once they comprehended that if it remained unimpeded, it would end up a threat to the progress of civilisation itself;

Sir Josiah Stamp President of the Bank of England, in an 1920's informal talk to 150 University of Texas students said;

Banking was conceived in iniquity, and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen, they will create enough deposits, to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers, and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.

Former Governor of Bank of England says banking fraud is threat to civilisation.

This document is not that long and it contains perhaps no greater insight of the international private banking pyramid scam crime ring from perhaps no higher authority.

Former Governor of the Bank of England - Vincent C Vickers - ran the loan book for a global elite for a decade before coming out against it until the day he died.

The document titled - Economic Tribulation - he wrote in 1939 outlines how the senior elements of private banking had made record profits from the finance, military, industrial complex of World War 1 and the dangers to humanity if it were to continue.

A taste of who the author was and its contents below;


Published 1941 - How many lives could have been saved if the warnings and solutions of this man had got the attention they deserved?


VINCENT CARTWRIGHT VICKERS
He was a Deputy Lieutenant of the City of London, a director of Vickers, Limited, for twenty-two years, and a director of the London Assurance from which he resigned in January 1939. In 1910 he was made a governor of the Bank of England, and resigned this appointment in 1919. Later, he became President of the Economic Reform Club and Institute.


I therefore decided to take the unprecedented course of offering to my readers my own qualifications for putting down before the British people the very precarious condition of our monetary system as it exists in this country to-day; that this our money system forms the most important part of our, economic system, and that the nation’s economic system forms part of our social system.......


Let us acknowledge the truth. Humanity is not suffering from unavoidable circumstances over which it has no control, but from the results of deliberate and dishonest actions of its own creation and invention. Fundamental laws, originally designed for the common welfare of the individuals of a community, have been broken – community laws which were never intended to permit the individual to grow fat upon the poverty of others; nor to permit him, in pursuit of his own personal profit, to base his standard of honesty upon his own flexible conscience, consoling himself with gratitude that he is within the law. Nevertheless, just as man has brought, upon himself, or has permitted, this world tribulation, so can he play his part in undoing the harm that has been done......


But how is this possible? How can the ordinary individual change the world? Shall the man in the street become an expert economist, or a banker, or a cabinet minister and control the press and public opinion? How otherwise can he assist in the regulation of mankind? What is meant by ‘lack of economic equilibrium’, ‘sound finance’, ‘stability of foreign exchanges’, ‘currency restrictions’, ‘the creation of credit’, ‘the inverted pyramid of credit’, and a host of other such phrases? They smell of long study, special technical ability, and great learning. Surely, then, it is commonly felt, it is better that ordinary individuals should leave economics to the economists, finance to the bankers, and national policy to the politicians? But, alas, that is exactly what we have for too long been doing. Look at the result! The experts have hopelessly failed. What is needed is a little less economics and a little more common sense.........


Although it is the money system which is to be accused of dishonesty, those who use and depend upon a dishonest system, knowing that system to be dishonest, cannot themselves be regarded as honest men. Moreover, it may be that the present system, which international finance has forced our democratic government to adopt, uphold, and protect by every possible means, has undermined the character of the people and forced them to alter their definition of the word honesty so that it may be made to comply more nearly with modern practice.........


No greater threat to humanity and the progress of civilisation can be conceived than the general spread of the Hitler regime of brute force. To crush out that regime for all time even if it stood alone as our sole war aim, would seem enough in itself without the necessity of searching for other objectives. Although we recognise how serious and how immense is the task that we have undertaken, the vast majority of us gain added strength from the knowledge that righteousness and justice are on our side. 


The nation has reached a state of preparedness, both mentally and physically, both for offence and defence, which will render the sacrifices and hardships and swift calamities that we must inevitably endure powerless to divert it from the set course which it has determined to pursue to the end. Yet even then, even when this first great objective shall have been gained, our labours will by no means be over. There is still a long way to go before we can begin to contemplate that promised land of peace and justice for mankind which no destructive war can ever of itself attain, and there remains vital work of preparation and reconstruction at home which cannot be neglected or delayed.

Unless we can contrive to design and establish an improved and reformed financial system, which is the first essential towards a new and better economy in our own country, no satisfactory outcome of the war is possible; for where there is still widespread injustice and discontent there can be no ending to that war, unless it be a tangle of internal revolts and revolutions. How can we presume to hold up our own social System as a pattern for other nations to follow, whilst it breeds selfishness, unrest, and dishonest competition amongst our own people, and whilst it is dominated by a decadent financial system in which we possess an ever-diminishing confidence and which is not even under the unbiased control or management of Government chosen by the will of the people? How can we hold out to the German people or to the world, the promise of justice under a new and better economic system that will eliminate poverty, malnutrition, and unemployment, whilst no such system exists, and whilst our own system is still permeated with these same evils?


On the other hand it is unthinkable that we should pretend to ourselves that we can, first of all, and by the successes of our arms, create in Germany an economic vacuum and, having done so, compel her to adopt a money lending system of international finance, designed for the benefit of international financiers who will become more and more anxious to preserve their monopoly and their immunity from governmental control. Are we now fighting to uphold freedom and democracy, or are we fighting to uphold and strengthen the dictatorship of international finance?


THE DIRECTION OF FUTURE POLICY
State control and State issue of currency and credit through a central organisation managed and controlled by the State......


Stabilisation of the wholesale price level of commodities. That is to say, a fixed and constant internal purchasing power of money; so that a pound will buy tomorrow what it bought yesterday; an honest pound, not a fluctuating pound. And this can be done by so issuing and regulating the volume of available credit and currency that it shall at all times be adequate to permit of the purchasing power of the consumer being equated with the volume of production; not by limiting the purchasing power, but by firstly increasing purchasing power more in proportion to the productive capacity of industry.........


Any additional supply of money should be issued as a clear asset to the State; so that money will be spent into existence, and not lent into existence..........


The abolition of the Debt System where all credit is created by the banks and hired out at interest to the country......

At the Mercy of Debt Merchants by Alfred Pearson 1969


It is one of the paradoxes of civilization that money is the one thing that is needed, and used, by more people than anything else, while it is at the same time, the least understood by them. There is no object more desperately sought for every minute of a person’s life. Man will labor until aching muscles prevent sleep, he will put his life at stake, and he will steal and commit murder in order to acquire it. How strange that he evinces such little interest in understanding what money is, how it is created, and who controls the amount in circulation……. 


History reveals a constant struggle by governments, and their citizens, to limit the power wielded by private bankers. So powerful have the bankers been, and so beholden have governments been to the bankers, that at no time has any major nation been successful in setting up an honest and adequate money system that was solely under the jurisdiction of the sovereign people.

Unfortunately, it has always been the ignorance of the people and the supine indifference of their representatives and government that have permitted a minority to usurp the issuance and control of money–a function that belongs exclusively and absolutely to the people through their government.”
