“Public Banks for Public Works,” Philadelphia symposium power point

The Pennsylvania Project hosted the East Coast edition of the Public Banking Institute national conference in Philadelphia last Saturday. Thanks Pennsylvania team!

I thought I would post my power point presentation (the sixth I’ve done since July), since it has a more complete discussion of the pressing issue always on the minds of elected officials: “Where will we find the money to capitalize our new public bank?” The relevant slides are at 21-26, expanding on the plan suggested in my article of October 12th titled Building an Ark: How to Protect Public Revenues from the Next Meltdown. The power point is here:

    Embarrassing how we can be such poor collective decision makers. This simply makes too much sense. Watch the power point.

  3. Hi,
    I really appreciate your work in the field of interest free banking; I have some questions regarding that,
    Banks say money has some value like if you take a loan of 10,000 dollars after 10 years value of this money will decrease. So banks give you the loan 10,000 dollars and take back the 15000 dollars. Because after 10 years 10,000 dollars loose its worth.
    Is this the interest or not, if this is the form of interest what is the argument against it.
    I really appreciate your work and will be humbled by quick response,

  4. As a matter of factor, interest is actually any form of money which you are going to get without working. Public banking and its money is supported by the continuous work of a nation. They never stop working and also discourage any form of making money from money. Money should only be made through work. everybody is going to work. Right now we have people among us who are actually not working and making money through money. and also invented super clever sort of terminologies to achieve their self-interest. This decreasing value of money is only because we want to make money through money. As a whole whole economy is converted into a huge betting machine. This inflation and depreciation of the currency occurs only because of these baron gamblers; Those who do not work. Any body working for any financial institution is not working. he/ she is member or employee of this great world casino.
