Free Monetary Seminar on Why Our Money System is Not Working for America

Learn more about money in 3 hours than some economists learn in a lifetime!
Included in the topics discussed: How and why the money power must be restored to
society where it can be used to promote the general welfare, instead of corrupt private agendas.

Stephen Zarlenga, Director


The Seminar will Discuss:

* America's Monetary Power has been usurped and privatized, leading to war.

* How the money power became privatized, and is kept in place by false theory.

* How a three step program restores it to society. * Why inflation need not be a problem.

* How the facts demonstrate that counter to prevailing prejudice, governmental control of
money has a far superior record than private control.

This is a hands on do-able reality based program, not a theory, with many U.S. historical precedents, and more going as far back as Classical Greece and Rome.

The Money system acts like a fourth branch of government, generally affecting our daily lives more than the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches combined. Yet it has been privatized and is largely outside the control of our democratic system of checks and balances where it has unfairly concentrated wealth to obscene levels.

The American Monetary Institute is America's leading think tank focusing on monetary history, theory and reform. Each September we hold a 3 day monetary reform conference at Roosevelt University, where cutting edge experts speak on those subjects. This year the Institute is offering this free introductory seminar the evening before the Conference begins.

This seminar is designed for Chicago area people who'd like a good background on how our money system works, why its not working well, how to fix it, and what benefits would follow in terms of infrastructure and health care and education; and how our society has the power to begin creating a superior future world, instead of getting mired in stupidity and warfare.
