Jamie Brown on “It’s Our Money”

Jamie 2010
Nature limits all systems — nothing grows forever. Economic systems built around growth, like ours, are no different. Ellen revisits that topic with biomimicry expert Jamie Brown-Hansen about what nature teaches regarding sustainable economic systems that last for eras rather than just decades. The theme is picked up by Bernie Sanders as he reflects on the precarious nature of our national economy, while Matt Stannard considers what’s not being addressed on the topic by the presidential candidates. And co-host Walt McRee talks with New Hampshire State Representative Valerie Fraser about the movement underway there to create a public State bank.

  1. Ellen, I love your books. See article I wrote in part to the knowledge you have shared:

    • Thanks Byron!

  2. why didn`t Bernie sanders mention Bill Clinton`s repeal of Glass-Steagel and Hillary`s ties to Goldman-Sachs. is the next Presidential Election going to be a re-run of last Democrat lie-down-and -play-dead.

    • It did look like the candidates were coached to “just stick to the issues” and not peer into each other’s records or characters too deeply. They mentioned the “big difference” between their debate and the Republicans’ — that they were all about issues, not mud-slinging.

    • Add to that Clinton’s introduction of untested transgenic (and in fact, NOT substantially equivalent to convential) crops to the nation’s environment and food supply, creating patented versions that contaminate uncontrollably genetic resources that evolved over literally billions of years (as well as the weakening of the country’s social safety net).

  4. I have a question that I would like an answer. The FED post the total world coin/paper money are 1.39 trillions
    But the M0 base aggregate post are billions. And also the M2 Post are in billions. Can anyone help me read the money aggregate charts?

    “How much U.S. currency is in circulation?
    There was approximately $1.39 trillion in circulation as of September 30, 2015, of which $1.34 trillion was in Federal Reserve notes.”
    http://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/currency_12773.htm

    and the base M0 is:
    4,049.419 Billions of Dollars\
    https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/AMBSL

    • So coinage = $1.39T minus 1.34T or $.05 T. The monetary base (which includes the reserves created by the Fed in QE) = $4T.

      • So how much is the M2 money stock? And where do you find that information?

  5. I wonder what seasonally adjusted mean
