Do Banks Create Money Out Of Thin Air?

Recommended Posts

Over a couple of hundred years there's often been people calling for the end of debt-based, private bank created money, or at least more non-debt money in circulation. Only in very recent times has this become a seemingly marginal issue.

It's little wonder the issue is firmly out of the public domain for the most part - most people who assume the government prints money, or that the bank of england puts a bit more into circulation using some clever calculation, are generally confused and angry when they realise that the banks can enslave them to interest-laden debt merely through a bit of slight of hand.

As debt-based, private-banker currency really is the cause of so many of the world's ills, of course money reform is needed.

Thanks to everyone who voted on this poll. It's good to know you are out there.

It is such a stupid argument because there is no alternative. Well there is an alternative that the gold bugs will tell you. Something about how every country will buy trilliions of pounds worth of some shiny yellow metal and everything will be OK. Its a joke.

For the last 50 years or more every single economy in the world has used a fiat currency. There is no alternative. Stop even bringing it up.
