2 Thoughts on “Inspired by the best: Public Banking Institute welcomes a great new slate of Advisory Board members”

  • As a native of the state of Nevada, I have taken quite a lot of interest in PB as a possible means of strengthening Nevada’s position if/when there is another financial downturn in the economy. We are a state that always depended on gaming, mining and tourism for our economic health. Times are changing dramatically and Nevada needs to be fully integrated into the 21st Century. I look forward to learning more about the public banks launch!

  • My advice to the new Public Banking Institute team of advisors is to begin with a basic understanding of the physical principles associated with the science of technology that I have already included in the Alaska State Bank legislation.

    Excluding these principles is one of the proven methods of laying the foundations of failure for a development bank. The ability to increase labor productivity and increase the technological complexity of the social divisions of labor will be severely restricted if these principles are ignored or rejected when developing a credit guidance policy.

    The following incomplete list of physical principles and engineering principles in alphabetic order must be included in public banking legislation to prevent the long-term failure of the economy being guided: amperage, brightness, British thermal units, clarity, conductivity, dynamics, electrification, energy coherence, energy conversion, energy flux density, horsepower, intelligence, joules, luminosity, machine tool principle, miniaturization, newtons, plasma coherence, potential population density, principle of least action, productivity, qualitative transformation, radiancy, reliability, renewability, self-organization, sustainability, thermal efficiency, throughput, torque, transparency, volumetric energy density, volumetric energy efficiency, voltage, wattage, and work flux density.

    I stand ready to provide logistical assistance and personal support for anyone interested in public banking who wants to attend conferences or presentations at the Asian Development Bank in Manila Philippines.
