This TED talk is about economics rather than money creation. But at least he does challenge ‘trickle down’ academic economics. Nick Hanauer has founded, co-founded and funded some 30 companies, i.e. he talks as an entrepreneur. At the end of the day, everybody can make some kind of difference. The difference the top 1% can make is just bigger!
“I am not making a moral argument. I am arguing that RISING economic inequality is STUPID. The model should be Henry Ford who intuited that
- an economy needs to be understood as an ecosystem.
21st century understanding of economics is about
- complex, adaptive, ecosystemic
- not efficient and effective.
Capitalism does not work by effectively allocating resources.
His ideas of ‘new capitalism’ include
- shrinking the size of government
- investing in the middle class
- balancing the power between ‘minimum wage’ and people like me.
Economics encode social and moral preferences, it’s not an exact science.
Fellow plutocrats, it is time to commit to a new kind of capitalism!

www.klagemauer.tv [wailing wall], a remarkable global news agency, published in Switzerland, that presents online news very smartly in mainstream media style.
This video contains the following stories [the links take you to different but English stories]:
- Rothschild’s $200 million bet regarding the demise of the Euro
- The Bank of North Dakota as a state-owned bank for the state’s citizens
- A few families rule the World
- Who rules money?
Fascinating are the differences in language, implied by German and English. I.e. the German word for ‘citizen’ implies the ‘guarantee’ for debts! The German for ‘debt’ is the same as for ‘guilt’. The German for ‘interest’ is very different from paying interest and having an interest.
- Nice cartoons illustrate how 98% (rather than 97) Credit [created by banks at interest] and 2% (rather than 3%) Cash [created by governments interest-free] are the money in circulation.

Blog the Debt is a great blog in the spirit of “Jubilee USA’s notes on debt and economic justice. Cancel debt. Eliminate poverty.”
This news item is about Pakistan Probing for Illegitimate Debt.
This is hopefully the beginning of unravelling the heinous enslavement of the world by Public Debts for Vested Interest Payments as institutionalised by central banks since the Bank of England Act 1694 or Anglo-Saxon capitalists…
