PaulThe above is absolutely true, unless the privately owned central banks are removed, the Central Banks will continue to control (Corporate Governments). The debt/bust cycle will continue to be at the whim of Central Banks and World Banks (IMF/BIS) third world countries will continue to be raped for ...

Who should have the power to create money?

Hyperinflation is born in extremis

Financial Times has published the letter by Ben Dyson, founder of Positive Money, in response to Philip Booth's Comment from April 29th.
