    In “Inheriting an Abundant Earth” a simple rule tweak on inheritance ends up changing the direction and purpose of modern human life! It’s something specific we can demand. Are we really just this close to having it work right? Oh yeah, it’s a Ski movie! Watch “Inheriting an Abundant Earth” on Youtube (“Occupying Chairlifts” 5.0) then sign the petition, and share it!!

    Why dont they take deficit payback from those who Really put us there ?? like those lovely world bankers who became trillionnaires financing both sides of unjustified wars and creating also artificial financial collapses and drops, just after they bought tons of real valuables (gold,silver,…). They want you broke, hopeless, angry…. and then their slaves. Adios Justice-Freedom-Equality !

    The world revolution which we will experience will be exclusively our affair and will rest in our hands. This revolution will tighten the Jewish domination over all other people.

    The reason why the US is unable to complete internationally has to do with its cost structure, not wages.
    What matters is what wages are spent on.
    in the US, 75-80% of a workers wages go to pay interest on debt (mortgage, credit card, etc), plus taxes & wage withholdings.
    Nations with lower levels of worker debt & lower costs of housing, transportation, healthcare ,etc can pay their workers less, while still supporting the standard of living needed to maintain a healthy & productive workforce.

    In Canada, the Central Bank is a explicitly publicly owed entity.
    There is no debate about its nature as there is in the US with the Fed.
    There’s no debate in Canada concerning the source of our money, it’s perfectly obvious to all.
    In reality, both operate in essentially the same manner, differing only in details of implementation.

    Money is a non-interest bearing debt of the Federal Government, in which all other debts all denominated.
    All NET financial assets in the economy, stem from Federal deficit spending, whether they bear interest or not.
    Issuing interest bearing debts doesn’t change the amount of net financial assets, only their composition (the ratio between interest/non-interest bearing debts) is altered.
    The actual notes are printed by the Treasury and the Fed actually remits all profits to the Treasury.

    What kind of an economy is that doesn’t use resources.
    That the whole point of an economy, to mobilize labour & natural resources into the production & distribution of finished goods & services.

    If it is a private entity why does it remit all profits to the Treasury?
    What kind of private bank would do that?

    The treasurer is printing money like crazy and it cannot keep up with the demand that the deficit is creating. It’s an inflation tactic created by oil companies and lobbyists.

    In the CNN video “How we got to the edge of the Fiscal Cliff”, the commentator says “Almost all congressional Republicans signed the Norquist tax pledge which forbids those who signed from raising taxes ever under any circumstances.” Did you vote for Grover Norquist, President of Americans for tax reform, a private group, to represent you? It sounds like Republicans are being led by a private interest group. How is that different from former Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich?

    The guy on the phone is a total liar. The government has been robbing social security all along. There is no surplus of funds. With the baby boomers retiring there is a definite shortage. The crisis is due to corruption and theft, but it is very real. Austerity is absolutely unavoidable. In fact an absolute collapse of the entire economy is unavoidable. Why should we listen to this wall street charlatan? Sure the fed can create more money, but they can’t create more value.
