Fixing our Broken Money System: AMI Conference

Achieving Justice, Avoiding Austerity, Reducing Debt and Creating Jobs

- Reducing our national debt while maintaining necessary government programs
- Creating new, good-paying jobs that improve the nation’s infrastructure
- Providing superior healthcare and education
- Fixing our broken money system!

The American Monetary Institute proudly announces the event, Fixing our Broken Money System, which will bring together specialists to discuss how we can solve the economic crisis, which is the result of corrupt banking practices, based on imaginary economic theories, and an unjust money system designed to concentrate the nation’s wealth into less than the richest 1%.

Join us at the Cooper Union in New York City for this exciting program that will answer the key monetary questions of our time.

Much of the terminology and proposals circulating in major media (including the Internet) are not based on reality. Examples include endlessly discussed ‘debt ceilings’ and ominous ‘fiscal cliffs’, and liberating ‘trillion-dollar coins.’ What does it all mean? Where is the dialogue on solutions and reforms that could actually work and benefit society, such as the NEED Act (HR 2990) introduced into Congress by Dennis Kucinich?

Getting real answers involves examining some key factors:
- The true nature of money as legal tender - Big banks’ unwarranted money creation power - much to blame for the current economic crisis
- Government’s constitutional power to create and regulate the money supply to promote the general welfare

We invite you to learn from real experts who have studied and worked on this issue in the spirit of improving our society.

    As Georgists we rightly claim that the joblessness in the US (and other places) is due to speculation in land values. So why is it claimed here that bad money management is to blame? If entrepreneurs decide that they cannot afford to borrow it is because the production costs are too high to stimulate demand, and not because the banks refuse to provide them with credit.

    The so called "outside money" of Cullen Roche, consists mainly of all of the credit provided by the banks through the use of debit cards and post-dated checks. This total sum greatly exceeds the "inside money" which is hard currency. With monetary reform the outside money is to be replaced, but with what?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
