BACK TO the Future: from 1914 (WWI) to 2014 (Bradbury Pound)

13 10 09 Money Matters

13 10 03 ERC BradburyThis 48-page booklet (1981) and this 200-page book (1986) are as fundamental as The Money Bomb (1983) – and as true and relevant today as there and then – if you want to understand how ‘money’ has changed from being a ‘medium of exchange’ to being used as a ‘tool for control’!

The title says it all: Government Debt and Credit Creation! 

Since Money Matters are not taught ‘properly’, it is difficult to understand

  • that the national debt only benefits those who receive interest payments
  • that banks, central banks and other financial institutions create ‘bank money‘ from thin air [Guardian, 2008] and charge interest for it
  • that governments used to create ‘treasury money‘, i.e. interest-free Cash, but have handed that power over to the banks in general and The City in particular.

See Sovereignty & Seignorage – the Legal Privilege and Financial Mechanism of Nation States.

The Bradbury Pound was in 1914 what we proposed as Green Credit for Green Purposes in 2008 and tabled as Early Day Motions since 2002:

  • government issued ‘treasury money‘, backed  by Public Credit.

The historic background of the Bradbury Pound is admirably described in

  8. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied
    on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw
    away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something
    informative to read?

  9. Valuable info. Lucky me I discovered your web site
    by chance, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t took place in advance!

    I bookmarked it.

  10. always i used to read smaller content that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with
    this piece of writing which I am reading at this time.

  11. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.

    Exceptional Blog!
