RESEARCH & EVIDENCE for TRUE MONETARY REFORM
This issue is so macro economically important and opaque that I have listed books and other research below to provide evidence that monetary reform that ends debt-created money is an absolute necessity! I have listed them in order of importance:
The Lost Science of Money by Stephen Zarlenga – This book is the ultimate in the global history and definition of money. It has far more historical content than my book.
The educational nonprofit of the American Monetary Institute (AMI) is at www.monetary.org. You can also attend the annual educational conference for extensive input!
The Bubble and Beyond by Michael Hudson – This book has the best description and proof that the debt creating money systems are unsustainable. His current book Killing the Host: How Financial Parasites and Debt Destroy the Global Economy is a summary of the former book with a description of the Great Recession and the U.S. bailout of the banks.
Sovereign Money, Beyond Reserve Banking by Joseph Huber— This is for all academics and economists who are interested in researching monetary reform. His website is:academics and economists who are interested in researching monetary reform. His website is:www.sovereignmoney.eu.Secrets of the Temple by William Greider -This book is the best and easiest to read when it comes to providing a description of the U.S. monetary history up to 1983.
At the same time, he teaches you how this current system works.The Chicago Plan Revisited by Michael Kumhof – Depicts a model of monetary reform that can be successfully implemented without excess inflation.Where Does Money Come From? by JoshRyan-Collins, Tony Greenham, Richard Werner, and Andrew Jackson.Metric for Money, Healthy Money, Citizen Owned Money Supply, and The Root of U.S. Public & Private Debt.
These are pamphlets written by Professor Bob Blain, Ph.D. They give a very quick read on the definition, history, and alternatives for “debt” money.Modernizing Money, by Andrew Jackson & Ben Dyson —this is a wonderful descriptive book on the UK money system, with many creative ideas for reform. Their nonprofit: Positive Money can be found at www.positivemonev.uk.Free Money—Plan for Prosperity, by Rodger Malcolm Mitchell — this book gives an excellent description of what our so-called National Debt really is.
The Shifts and the Shocks, by Martin Wolf – The first internationally known financial writer who is considering embracing true monetary reform.
Web of Debt by Ellen Hodgson Brown -This is an excellent and easy read to help readers understand our current monetary system. But, it provides an incomplete solution to help our economies through public banking.
Between Debt and the Devil by Adair Turner – The most recent book on monetary reform; however, he recommends keeping a partial reserve banking system. This is still unsustainable!
We Hold These Truths – The Hope of Monetary Reform by Richard C. Cook Rights vs. Privileges by Robert De Fremery Fantopian by James Gibb Stuart – This is an excellent analogy explaining our monetary system using a historical setting.
Two Faces of Money by Geraldine Perry and Ken Fousek The Secrets of the Federal Reserve by Eustace Mullins. This book is over the top. It should be read last in your research. Coined by Kabir Sehal and Biography of the Dollar by Craig Karmin. These provide an easier and shorter history of the dollar—money. They offer no solutions.
MONETARY QUOTES from the FAMOUS
Benjamin Franklin—(From His Autobiography)
In one year, the conditions [of the Colonels] were so reversed that the era of prosperity ended, and a depression set in, to such an extent that the streets of the Colonies were filled with the unemployed… The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away fi’om the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction (Currency Act of 1764).
The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War.
“The utility of this currency became, by time and experience, so evident as never afterwards to be disputed…increasing trade, building, and all the time increasing inhabitants though I now think there are limits beyond which the quantity may be hurtful. 99
President James Garfield
Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce… And when you realize that the entire system is easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate.
Horace Greeley—(about the Coinage Act of 1873)
We have stricken the shackles fi’om four million human beings and brought all laborers to a common level, not so much by the elevation of the former slaves as by practically reducing the whole working population, white and black to a condition of serfdom. While boasting of our noble deeds, we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system, we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery.
