Presenter: Bob Schmitz
Topic: “Money Power”
The focus of this presentation will be our monetary system or the "money power". It will provide a historical analysis of our debt-money system which dates back 300 years and offer recommendations for reform. Without such reforms we are destined to live with continual economic uncertainty, resulting in a crisis every few years. This presentation will complement those of the last two speakers at CTC, but will take a longer historical perspective and critique the underlying monetary system.
