We need to change bank system – Barry Fitzgerald – Irish Examiner

Economist Jim Power says the ideas of independents and those who question austerity, etc, scares the living daylights out of him (Irish Examiner, May 28). He hopes all will return to normal and by 2016 the people will continue to go with the status quo of political parties.

In 2008, when the bankster-engineered crash hit, not all of the people retreated into a shell of helplessness and fear. Some learned about money, money creation and economic management. What they found horrified them, but equally it empowered them greatly as they realised it was all a great scam and a giant Ponzi scheme.

After all, how can one square that all money in circulation was created as a debt? That said debt has interest demands and the interest component does not exist? That banks create all money out of thin air at the point of a loan being made and hence there are no legitimate creditors? That governments ceded all power to create money to private banks and see nothing wrong with this? That banks create repeated boom/bust cycles by either releasing massive credit like during the Celtic Tiger or stopping all credit flow like the engineered crashes of 1929 and 2008? That modern banking is a long range game designed to slowly seize the physical assets of people and countries?

I have some bad news for Mr Power. The phenomenon is not restricted to Ireland. People worldwide woke up and started researching. They are not going away. Not only that but it does not take 51% of a population to understand something for it to go mainstream. The hundredth monkey effect is well known and it states that roughly 10% of a population holding a viewpoint or belief is enough for it to ‘flash’ to all others. So the day he dreads may be closer than he thinks.

Modern banking can be likened to a rigged casino game. Mr Power and many others are the croupiers. They are perfectly decent and respectable and do absolutely nothing wrong, but they see their future depending on the house continuing in business, despite the misery it inflicts on the people. Unlike the current system that is forcing thousands into suicide around our world, the new systems are benign and will provide security for one and for all; even for reformed economists.

Councils should "bring local banks into being" so they can become "powerful partners" and promote economic, social and environmental benefits to their communities.

Published on Mar 21, 2013 Speaking at the 2nd European Conference on Banking and the Economy (ECOBATE) in Winchester, Alex Templeton, Director of the Farm Energy Project, explains how a disfunctional financial system has made it harder to lend to small businesses which in turn impacts communities.

    • Hi Pat,
      Thanks for your comment on Barry’s article and for checking out our website.
      I see you live in Northern Ireland; we would like to make the public banking project an all-Ireland one. Would you be interested in promoting it up north?
