PBI Chair Ellen Brown has just published her latest book. It is titled Banking on the People: Democratizing Money in the Digital Age, and is published by the Democracy Collaborative. Ellen introduces the book’s intent:
“We are living in revolutionary times … an auspicious time for a revolution against an international banking oligopoly that has long held the world captive. Bankers are the gatekeepers controlling who gets credit and on what terms, extracting massive profits that they can invest for their own speculative purposes, while people and governments are crippled by debts they cannot possibly repay. Fixing the banking problem requires more than regulation that merely tweaks an obsolete system. We need a radical overhaul of the monetary system itself, and that means rethinking what money is and how it enters the economy.”
