STABLE STERLING?

private.com? public.gov? or UK Unlimited?

Banks as Usurers or the State as Money Creator?

These are the Questions we Raise when we Debate
Legal Issues, Financial Scandals and their Monetary Causes
in Meetings at the House of Lords

OUR CONTEXT

¨      Money should be the servant not the master of humanity.

¨      Banks’ abilities to create money out of nothing must be curtailed.

¨      Personal responsibility needs to be maximised.

¨      Governments need to take responsibility for the Supply of Money to ensure its Value.

 

QUOTES EXPRESSING OUR CONCERNS

Governments need to appreciate long term implications of financial institutions
in the short term thinking of the Internet Age.
   The Rt Hon Lord Caithness
