Monetary.org seems to be invisible to most of the web, despite its proposed legislation being introduced in the US house by Kucinich some years ago. It seems to me to have a every elegant, fair and minimally disruptive fix to what ails us. Job one of course, is to remove the ability of banks to create money and move that power back to congress where it belongs. If the USA was the only country in the world with a sound monetary system, informed foreigners would be piling into dollars. It could stabilize the economy long enough to transition the USA back from the edge of catastrophe. As things stand, we are royally screwed.
People need to be talking about this program. Time is growing short. This is what we need, and soon,
We, at the American Monetary Institute, have put together this list of resources that we hope can be a great starting point for any new student of monetary reform. Also, if you sign up to our email list using the box to the right, you will receive several of these articles over a span that will allow you to digest the material.
This article is an overview of our current monetary system and what needs to be done to fix it. It is a great, concise piece that can serve as an comprehensible introduction for anyone interested in learning about monetary history, theory or reform.
Answers to frequently asked questions on monetary reform issues such as, “Won’t the government creating new money for infrastructure and other expenses cause inflation?” and “How can we trust government with the power to create money? – Won’t they go wild (and again cause inflation)? Don’t you know that government can’t do anything right?”
This plan was developed by the best economic minds in the country during the Great Depression. AMI’s proposed monetary reform legislation is closely modeled after this plan.
This article outlines the inherent, structural flaws of a system which allows (and promotes) usury.
This speech describes how the financial crisis came about, how it was the only possible outcome given our current monetary system, and what steps must be taken in order to put time on the side of justice in our monetary system.
A brief, 32 page, explanation of monetary reform. Great for those beginning their interest in monetary reform.
When can we be adults about this? The fed is a criminal enterprise. Its controllers are disaster capitalists. How obvious does this have to be?
It seems to be impolite to point out that the fed’s shareholders are disaster capitalists, it’s in their financial interests to crash the economy from time to time and that’s what they’ve been doing. The incompetence theory is simply unbelievable.
Dr. Bob Zajac is a self-proclaimed former “vaccine bully.” As a board-certified pediatrician, with additional expertise developmental/behavioral pediatric care, Dr Zajac admits that he used to bully parents in his practice into vaccinating. But his attitude changed when he had to start making decisions about vaccines for his own children.
Dr. Zajac explains how medical doctors do NOT receive a lot of training in vaccines, so he spent years researching vaccines after seeing some of his patients get injured as a result of vaccinations.
Learn The Risk is a parent-driven grassroots campaign to raise awareness of the real dangers of pharmaceutical products. The non-profit organization was founded by an ex-pharmaceutical employee and parent in response to the industry’s unprecedented assault on parental rights and health freedom by funding laws that take our right to say “NO” away.
In December of 2000, decades after ultrasound was approved by the FDA for use in obstetric that Agency acknowledges that no one knows the delayed, long term effects of diagnostic levels of ultrasound on human development.
Millions of women and their unborn children are being exposed to diagnostic ultrasound during pregnancy and childbirth without the women being advised prior to exposure that there has been no well-controlled scientific investigation carried out to study the delayed, long-term effects of ultrasound on human development. Ova, embryos and fetuses are often exposed to prolonged sonography because the physician or technician lacks sufficient expertise to evaluate what he or she is seeing.
The FDA has yielded to pressure from industry and organized medicine to relinquish control over the amount of sonic energy that can be emitted by the new ultrasound devices used in obstetrics. The new ultrasound machines will beep at certain levels of energy output but essentially there will be little or no limit on the energy the health care provider may choose to use.
Despite the fact that the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiologic Health acknowledged the potential risks of ultrasound used in obstetrics in its 1982 publication “An Overview of Ultrasound”, edited by Stewart and Stratmeyer, there is no evidence that health care providers are obtaining women’s truly informed consent to the use of ultrasound in pregnancy.
There are no state or federal regulations which require periodic calibration of ultrasound devices used in obstetric care. Nor are there any regulations that require a record to be kept of basic information such as:
The indication for the procedure
The written consent of the patient
The name of the manufacturer and the model number of the ultrasound equipment used
The type of ultrasound employed
The proposed intensity, as well as the actual intensity of exposure
The proposed and actual length of exposure
Maternal height, weight, and temperature
Identification of the hospital or the office where the procedure is carried out
Identification and qualification of sonographer
Date of exposure
Numerous studies have been carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of routine diagnostic ultrasound. None has shown the routine use of diagnostic ultrasound to improve maternal and infant outcome over that achieved when diagnostic ultrasound was used only when medically indicated….
Luckily things have improved since this article was written in 2000. Not.
