The Fourth Option: Citizen Shares
EUR€4.47New Kobo Germany
The focus in Congress today is on taxes, spending and cutting. Benjamin Franklin, Abraham lincoln, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and many others, believed that the Federal Government should issue the money of the Nation, not borrow it. This little book documents their views and traces the history of a movement, called Sovereignty, to get Congress to lend new money to state and local governments to build and repair infrastructure including schools and to pay down existing debt. The book goes beyond that effort to suggest that a nation's money supply should be thought of as citizen shares, like shares in a corporation, that citizens own and use to vote with their purchases and with the jobs they choose to do for the kind of society they want to live in. It explains how we can begin to establish a debt-free and interest-free money supply that will encourage all of us to share the work and share the wealth that our work produces.
