I remember reading that Gordon Brown said the Government can either tax or borrow to raise money when he was acting as PM. As if he had forgotten or never knew that governments ought to create money and put it in circulation, if they want to ‘run’ the economy.
BUT: they don’t and don’t seem to want to either.
Here’s a good introductory article: Op-Ed: Debt-free money for 2014?
Here’s a remarkable historic account in 6,000 words: John Bradbury and Thomas Paine.
Here’s a good new video that illustrates the mathematical power of compounding interest upon interest in a debt-based money system: A flaw in the monetary system?
And here are money related petitions you might want to sign:
The Bradbury Pound is for the UK what the Greenback is for the US:
- Cash issued by the Government – rather than Credit borrowed from the Central Bank
- free of interest – rather than interest-bearing
- spent by Government
- rather than banks selling Credit at interest to ‘consumers’.
It is remarkable how ‘economics’ was introduced to obfuscate what ‘money’ is and how bankers have succeeded in getting their Credit accepted as if it was remotely comparable with Government issued Cash.
What is even more remarkable is how ‘people behind the scenes’ have succeeded in setting up more and more central banks via whom to export this fundamental mechanism of Anglo-Saxon hyper-capitalism globally. Iran and Korea are the only countries left.
What hope is there? Let me count the reasons:
- Bring Back the Bradbury Pound has started as a voluntary campaign
- August 2014 will be the 100th anniversary – so a count-down has begun
- The People’s Assemblies Against Austerity have had a major meeting in Central London with a broad base of angry people who don’t buy into ‘austerity’ as a policy that ‘works’.
They have formulated these demands:
- stop cuts and halt privatisation
- tax the millionaires and big business
- drop the debt and put banks under democratic control
- invest in jobs, homes, public services and the environment.
Obvious, aren’t they!? Not to the Assistant of the Committee who wrote this letter published here:
The Treasury Committee has no plans to look into this subject in the foreseeable future.
We shall therefore have to educate the assistants and members of the Committee – once again – after we began with Green Credit for Green Purposes in 2008…
This is an excellent article written by a very interesting author, the “captive wolf” who publishes a German blog against the New World Order. It’s long and very well researched and ends in large print with this:
The Rothschilds want North African Muslims to borrow from Rothschild banks and pay interest at rates the Rothschild central bank decides:
they do not want them to be able to borrow from Islamic banks and not pay any interest.
The Rothschilds want Muslims to trade their present political oppression at the hands of brutal dictators for future economic serfdom under the control of banker Lord Rothschild.
“Becoming ecnomic serfs” is the purpose…
The Campaign is an admirable effort to do something about the extremes that bankers and central bankers have pushed the world to.
Here are the news of the last general meeting and here is a list of media coverage during January 2011.
This blog post by admirable Ann Pettifor puts it in a nutshell: what is at stake is nothing less than Britain’s democracy, and the peoples’ right to control over the nation’s finances.
See Sovereignty & Seignorage and Green Credit for Green Purposes as the basis for “economic democracy“! Wouldn’t it be nice!?…
We’ve been advocating economic democracy through freedom from national debt for a long time. But we are not enough insects to kill the elephant yet!…
Our latest Early Day Motion (EDM) tabled by Austin Mitchell MP spells it out: Interest-Free Credit is the answer to the lies accumulating from central bankers, bankers and economists.
When we held a Forum meeting on March 9th, 2010 we awarded both Lord Sudeley and Austin Mitchell MP the Honorary Robin Hood Award.
The Robin Hood Tax, feared by the banks and loved by the poor, is the tip of the changes required to move the iceberg of public debts.
Meeting Lord Sudeley in 1998 was the beginning of Forum meetings in the House of Lords.
Since the House of Lords reform, however, Austin Mitchell MP has been particularly active on our behalf, especially by tabling Early Day Motions in the House of Commons.
