Committee for the Republic of Canada Class:Greenback Economics vs. Green Economics
Kevin begins by reviewing the roots of zero-growth economic policies, their connections to the eugenics movement of the British Empire, which is now known as environmentalism, and how it ties in with the reductionist, computer based "information society" that brought you derivatives, and Wikipedia.

He will also bring to light the connection between the imperial entities that have both lead the world into a...

What Is the American System?


U.S. citizens, and even economists and historians in this country, have often never heard of the "American System" of economics which made our nation great. Worse yet, many confuse it with the British System of free trade and looting.

In the nineteenth century, however, our leading statesmen not only understood the American System, but promoted it, and campaigned for it, in their political speeches. They understood that our nation, even the world, was in...

The first thing you need is a global Glass Steagall standard, which restricts banks from mixing speculative/financial accounts with commercial accounts, which are connected to the real physical economy, and are largely composed of the average person's deposits. Banks should not be able to gamble on the stock markets with other peoples' money, and then get bailed out when they lose because they basically put every cent in play at once.



This process would also require that the...

by Ellen Brown


Canada, called the world’s most resource-rich country, is now being subjected to austerity measures like those imposed on third world countries in earlier decades. It is all done in the name of reducing a federal debt that got out of control in the 1970s, when Canada quit borrowing from its own central bank.

 "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. . . . We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people."

"It is time to declare economic sovereignty from the multinational banks that are responsible for much of our current economic crisis.  Every year we ship over a billion dollars in Oregon taxpayer dollars to out-of-state and multinational banks in the form of deposits, only to see that money invested elsewhere. It's time to put our money to work for Oregonians."-- Bill Bradbury, former Oregon Senate President and Secretary of...

Time for a New Theory of Money: By understanding that money is simply credit, we unleash it as a powerful tool for our communities PDF Print E-mail

The reason our financial system has routinely gotten into trouble, with periodic waves of depression like the one we’re battling now, may be due to a flawed perception not just of the roles of banking and credit but of the nature of money itself. In our economic adolescence, we have regarded money as a “thing”—something independent of the relationship it facilitates. But today there is no gold or silver backing our money. Instead, it’s created by banks when they make loans (that...

The current credit crisis is basically a capital crisis: at a time when banks are already short of the capital needed to back their loans, capital requirements are being raised.   Nearly a century ago, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia demonstrated that banks do not actually need capital to make loans – so long as their credit is backed by the government.  Denison Miller, the Bank’s first Governor, was fond of...

March 19, 2010           Money today is just a ticket, a receipt for work performed and goods delivered. We can fund the work we need done by creating our own credit.    

As the states’ credit crisis deepens, four states have initiated bills for state-owned banks, and candidates in seven states have now included that solution in their platforms.

A monetary system 




is one which is based on the indiscriminate creation of money. A central, private institution controls the creation of money for a nation. Examples of these are the IMF, World Bank, Bank of England, Federal Reserve, and other private banks.


This type of system is both predatory and inflationary. It derives it's wealth from exploiting the powerless and clueless masses, and relies on deception.
