  • Understanding Money,” by John H. Hotson. From the article: “…Governments got into this mess by violating four common sense rules regarding their fiscal and monetary policies. These rules are:
    1. No sovereign government should ever, under any circumstances, give over democratic control of its money supply to bankers.
    2. No sovereign government should ever, under any circumstances, borrow any money from any private bank.
    3. No national, provincial, or local government should borrow foreign money to increase purchases abroad when there is excessive domestic unemployment.
    4. Governments, like businesses, should distinguish between “capital” and “current” expenditures, and when it is prudent to do so, finance capital improvements with money the government has created for itself.
  • The Money Myth Exploded,” by Luis Even. One of the most popular articles to explain how money is created as debt by private banks.
