A simple system to exchange goods and services
How you can open a local debt-free bank
with the use of simple accounting cards you can print yourself or buy in a bookstore.
by François de Siebenthal, Switzerland
Texte en français pages 18 et 19 http://www.michaeljournal.org/maijuinjuillet2005.pdf
The following is a lecture given by Mr. François de Siebenthal — an economist and Consul General of the Philippines in Switzerland — at our headquarters in Rougemont, Quebec, Canada, on March 2005. Mr. de Siebenthal demonstrated to those present how easy it is to open a local bank with just the use of simple cards. Mr. de Siebenthal has gone to several countries to explain this system to various interested audiences. In fact, Social Credit is no longer only a theory, but is put into practice in these countries, with local debt-free banks multiplying.
In an age where the use of the microchip is becoming a real threat, this is certainly a way in which one could exchange goods and services without having to bow down to the use of this microchip. Why not read and study what Mr. de Siebenthal has on this subject. It could prove to be very useful in the future!
A simple bank
I will now just to teach you how to open a local bank using Social Credit principles. It is very easy to do and everyone can do it.
Already in past history, small, local banks in Switzerland were established by farmers. The banker is a farmer, the bank is in a farm house, the customers are farmers, and the owners of the bank were and are farmers. These little banks, put together in Switzerland, make up the third largest Swiss bank actually in operation with the best ratio and the best management because the costs are very low. Since the banks are very small and in small houses, and because you do not need big armoured cars and security personal, these banks are very efficient. These little banks can also be found in Austria and some other countries.
The tragedy of debt money with interests
You know that money is created in the form of debts with interest rates, and you know that the theory of Social Credit is true, and that interest kills. The statistics of the International Labor Organization in Geneva state that every day you have 5,000 people dying in work places. That makes more every day than the people who died in the Twin Towers. Every day! That means that because of capitalism and because of exaggeration in productivity, you have every day 5,000 people dying on the work place. And I do not count all the stress, all the psychological problems, suicides, alcoholism, drugs, children at home without the parents because the father and the mother are both working .
Now, with our system, you can imagine that a system without interest rates will save a lot of money. It will save at least three hours every day for each one of you, it will cut the prices by half, and it will give the houses 77 % more space because the interest rates are taking a lot of productivity in the whole world.
So now I am teaching you how to found a bank. …Where to start
How do we make such a bank in a country? What we did first was to listen to the people. What are their real needs? What are the real needs in Madagascar? What are the needs, the real needs, the basic needs just to survive, because in most of those countries the people do not have enough just to live. Then, after listening to them, we also learn the mentality of these people. We have to adapt to the culture and the local mentality.
Social Credit is the answer to the real needs, the basic needs of these poor countries. After having listened to the people, we tell them that we have something that can help them. It is not a magic wand that will give them paradise on earth, but it is a system that will guarantee each individual an access to the basic necessities of life and allow the poorest countries to make use of their resources to help their own population .
The main thing is to look for the Kingdom of Christ and His justice: “But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.” (Matthew 6:33.) This is really what we are doing here with this local exchange system; we are dealing with justice, the justice of God. Work for justice, and everything else will follow!
A Christian coin
At this point of my talk, I would like to show the 5-franc coin that is currently in circulation in Switzerland. (See picture above. ) On one side, one can see the Swiss cross, which represents the Kingdom of Christ, and on the other side, social justice is represented by William Tell, the Swiss national hero and liberator of the poor and of the oppressed. On the edge, one can read these Latin words: ” Dominus providebit — God will provide”, which specifically refers to the verse of the Gospel of Matthew mentioned above.
In all our meetings to organize local debt-free banks, we need to remind people that God does provide, that He is indeed very generous. In the Philippines, for example, they can raise three crops of corn. If you take one seed of corn, this seed will give you three stalks which will give you around 200 seeds. So if one gives you 200, then ten gives you 2,000; one hundred then gives you 20,000. Three crops per year (20,000 X 3) yields 60,000%. And the banker will probably give you 6%. This means that God is indeed generous.
There are fish in the sea you can fish. With the earth, you can till, and the earth is very generous. You know that the earth could feed many times the world’s population. It is not a problem of food but a problem of distribution. Then it is important to remember how the earth is generous and that there is enough room for everybody on this earth.
In Switzerland, as I told you, this system of small banks is working. There is also another system in place: a parallel money called “wir”, the German noun signifying “we” in English. This involves a notion of community. This money has bee in existence since the 1933, created during the crisis, and it is working very well. It is parallel money. Few know about this money. Switzerland, the poorest country in the world as far as natural resources are concerned, is one of the richest countries in the world because of its organization of small banks and this kind of parallel money.
Usury is condemned by the Church
You know too that the Church, the Catholic Church, has always condemned the charging of interest on the loan of money, calling it usury. As a matter of fact, the social doctrine of the Church, which supplies principles of justice to be applied in human activities, is probably, amongst all the teachings of the Church, the part that is the least known. And the least known part of this social doctrine, the best kept secret, is certainly the encyclical letter Vix Pervenit, issued in 1745 by Pope Benedict XIV, and addressed to the Bishops of Italy, about contracts, and in which usury, or money-lending at interest, is clearly condemned. In 1836, Pope Gregory XVI extended this encyclical to the whole Church. The text of this encyclical was destroyed in many countries of the world just to hide this most well-kept secret of the social doctrine of the Church. It states:
“The kind of sin called usury, which lies in the loan, consists in the fact that someone, using as an excuse the loan itself — which by nature requires one to give back only as much as one has received — demands to receive more than is due to him, and consequently maintains that, besides the capital, a profit is due to him, because of the loan itself. It is for this reason that any profit of this kind that exceeds the capital is illicit and usurious.
“And in order not to bring upon oneself this infamous note, it would be useless to say that this profit is not excessive but moderate; that it is not large, but small… For the object of the law of lending is necessarily the equality between what is lent and what is given back… Consequently, if someone receives more than he lent, he is bound in commutative justice to restitution…”
What you need to start a bank
The principle is the same as in the tale of “The Money Myth Exploded”: an account is created for each member of the community, since the conception.
The following system will therefore allow any community or village to make financially possible what is physically possible in that community, that is to say, to create as much money as they need to exchange goods and services. Just like in the tale of “The Money Myth”, you can first use a blackboard and a chalk to explain the system to the people gathered in front of you, who wish to be part of this local bank and exchange system.
Then you distribute to each member of the community a small card, which will be their bank account. (See Figure 1, a blank card.) You can use any bookkeeping card, small enough so it can be put in your pocket, in your purse. This will be the money and, at the same time, the way to create local money without interest. It is very important to state: without interest!
Figure 1 — Blank card
You distribute pens in the poor countries because, many times, they do not even have pens, and you write on the card the basic personal information: your name, your address, your card number (which is the same as your bank account number), your birth date and signature. The signature proves that you are the owner of this card; even if you lose it, nobody else can use it, for as you will see later, your signature is required on the cards — yours and that of the person with whom you are exchanging goods or services — every time you make a transaction.
If they are very poor and illiterate, you can use a piece of tissue with small threads (one for every person of the local community) across small squares drawned on the fabric, representing the names or the professions, threads with same length on each side of the tissue, under are the outs, above are the plusses of money, and they measure the money and keep a trace with a knot on each rope, one above for the seller, one under for the buyer. You can measure with a ruler or the thumb, and you define together the value of the space between the knots. The first plus is the dividend represented by a knot above and equal for each one, since conception.
To be even simplier, you can just put a thread across and in the middle of the debit/credit card for the illiterate, they will do knots according to the value negotiated of their needs ans as soon they have a friend litterate, he will report on the card. To know your credit, you just need to put both end of the thread together and you will see if the knots of the pluses are above or under the knots of tne minuses.
The first thing to do after these cards are distributed is to give numbers to the people. That means that everyone that is in the room should be allocated a number, one after the other. The first row can have the number 1, 2, 3, and so on. Everyone says the next number in sequence and everyone writes his number on his card. One person in charge of the ledger for the community writes all the names in the ledger with the corresponding account number. This will be your bank account number. It is like a football team — you give a number to everyone, and this number matches the name on the card.
Depending of the level of development in the community, you can add your phone number and e-mail address, if applicable. You can also mention your trade (present occupation) and other jobs you could do or services you could offer. This information can be used if one wants to create a catalogue of all the goods and services offered in the community. On the back of the card, there is the address and phone number of the local bank.
Now, in the other columns, you have the date, the reason of the transaction, a column to show the money you spend (money out of your account), the account number and signature of the person with whom you are transacting, and a column for the money coming in to you. You can see that this is very simple .
Figure 2 — Tom Smith’s card
Now to understand better how it works, we have an example you can look at. (Figure 2, Tom Smith’s card.) The first amount written down on your card will be an effective implementation of Social Credit: a social dividend, given periodically (once a month) to every member of the community, representing their common heritage in the wealth of the community (progress, life in society, natural resources). This amount is to be determined by the community, and must cover the basic necessities of life. So, on the first line, you see a date, the reason (a dividend), nothing in the money-out column (you draw a line; it is money that you receive, not money that you spend), the number and signature of the person giving you that money (in this case, the signature of the local bank or its director, and for the sake of the example, the number “0” was allocated to the bank.) And on the last column, money in, $100 is inscribed. The bank has given you a dividend of $ 100. This transaction has also been inscribed in the ledger of the bank .
Now on the second line, let us suppose that Tom Smith wants to buy from Paul Jones 50 kilos of apples, for a cost of $50. So you have the date of the transaction, the reason (purchase of apples), the amount you spent ($50), the number and signature of Paul Jones who sold you the apples (Paul Jones, for the sake of this example, was allocated account number 2.) Paul Jones signs his name on your card, and you sign your name on his card.
Figure 3 — Paul Jones’ card
Every transaction always involves two cards, therefore two signatures. So, a purchase for you on your card, will be a sale for the other person involved in the transaction on the other card. If you look at Paul Jones’ card (Figure 3), the reason of the transaction will be “sale of 50 kilos of apples”), and the $ 50 will be written in the column of the money-in, not the money-out. And Tom Smith’s signature will appear at the end of the line.
Now, let us suppose Paul Jones has a chair that needs to be fixed. He knows that Tom Smith is a carpenter. He goes to see him, and Tom Smith agrees to do the job for $10. So you will have on both cards the reason of the transaction (chair fixed), with the amount ($10) written on each card — as money that comes in, on one card, and money that comes out, on the other. And the examples could go on and on.
This system is presented to the people for the first time during the meeting for the foundation of the local bank. The best thing for you now is to train yourself with such a card. When the cards are distributed, you put your name on the card — you do not need to put all the other details. And you make transactions with your neighbours. You buy and you sell. And you will see that you have now in your hand the same money-creation system that the banks have; they do the same in computers and ledger books in accounts in banks, but it is without interest that you do your transactions.
Now train yourself for a while with your neighbours on how to create local money. This period is very important, and you will need to give at least 15 minutes for this training period, until everyone in the room has understood. It is very important! In the Philippines, the young people went to the old people to teach them, some of them not even being able to read or write. But they were able to understand the system because it is only figures. Even if they do not know how to write letters, they know how to write numbers.
You have a contract every time you create money. You have, at the same time, the proof of a contract, a commitment with the signature, and the number to double check the signature.
You are in control
And you control the system. Money creation is under your control and under that of your local community. You know each other and you can create as much money as it is necessary for your needs. So what is physically possible is now financially possible. Your community will never lack money .
This system you have now used is the same system that the banks use to create money, but you control it! And you control it without interest! It is very cheap. It is efficient. You can create any amount of money according to the available production and services. You can exchange any number or kind of goods and services. And you are in control. You own the money-creation system.
And it is even more efficient than the actual system because it costs a lot to print bank notes. Just one line of printing machines with special ink, special paper, etc. costs $ 100,000,000 US, and you save this amount with this system. And it is even better than a bank note because you have your name on it. If you lose your card, someone will phone you telling you he found your money. And this person who finds your money can do nothing with your money because your signature is needed. It is really your money.
You cannot dispossess someone who has lost his money. If the money (the card) is destroyed by fire or other means, you can reconstruct a card using information from other cards. All cards are consolidated in the local bank ledger. This means that if your bank card is destroyed, you can reconstruct your bank card with the accounts of the others because the other cards have your card number for every operation they did with you. You can rebuild your accounting books and reclaim your assets; an even better method than the actual system with bank notes. And you have, naturally, no interest. This means every transaction will be cheaper in the community because, today, interest rates kill people .
To own a bank
In my presentation to start a new bank, I say to the audience: “So, do you want to be the owner of a bank? Yes? Who does not want to be the owner of a local bank? I assume that everyone wants to be the owner of a bank. You can be the owner of a bank, like we did in the Philippines, Madagascar, Switzerland, and Poland. But to be the owner of a bank, this bank needs to have a management. This banks needs to have auditors. Then we now need to have people who are willing and ready to act as managers, and willing and ready to act as auditors. So now I ask you, who will volunteer to act as managers of the bank and auditors of the bank? I need at least three managers (a director, a secretary, and a treasurer) and two auditors (who verify once in a while the bookkeeping of the bank). Now, th ose who are willing to be and to act as the management of this local bank owned by the local community, please come in front of the room.”
It was very interesting to see how many people were willing to act and to take the responsibility of running the bank. In Poland, we had so many people who came on the stage, it was just unbelievable. In the Philippines, too, a lot of people were volunteering to come in front to fill these positions. So be sure you have seats in front of the general assembly so the new managers and auditors will be able to sit down. It is the community that chooses the people who will be on the board of the bank, people they can trust and who have enough skills to do the job.
In Madagascar, we established a bank in one of the poorest villages in the country, and now we are receiving great reports signed by the management of the bank. They understood, and they took the responsibility of their new bank very seriously.
To be the bank manager of the local bank is very easy: your only task is to be in charge of the bank ledger. There is no need for a safe, bullet-proof windows, armoured trucks nor armed bodyguards to carry the money, etc. The only thing you have to keep in your house is the bank ledger.
Now, at this stage, you have the general management, you have the auditors, and you have the general assembly. It is now important to put in writing equitable prices for basic goods and services of the area. This is to be decided by the general assembly. It is also extremely important to put in writing how the profits will be divided within the community, because this bank can create money as any other bank and will create money to allocate investments for the production of goods. Thus the people, when they have a lot of pluses (money in) on their cards, can invest those pluses in projects, and those projects will give more abundant production. So it must be put in writing how the profits of this abundance will be distributed. This way, the people will be more eager to share.
In the Philippines, for example, a rice producer who understood very well the system signed a contract to share 70% of the profits from his rice production with the general assembly, keeping only 30% of the profits for himself. It was really astonishing for me to see this generosity. A priest explained to me that when there is no interest charged, when there is no usury, the producers are very happy because, in those countries, usury can climb up to 1,000% per year. That makes 20% a week. And because we now have a local banking system without usury, without interest rates, everybody is happy, and everybody can share more. Now all this money will not go to the usurer who was doing nothing except taking 1,000% per year .
A system that works
This system reminds us of the parable of the dishonest steward. You remember in the Gospel of Luke (Chapter 16) the parable of the dishonest steward saying to his master’s debtors: “Here is your promissory note. Sit down and quickly write half the sum that you owe to my master.” The only difference is that with our local debt-free banks, everything is done honestly. And it is working! In fact, it is working so well in the Philippines that we have now more than 15 local banks (as of March 2005). And some mass-media people and some people saying they are from the government (from population control agencies) are now already attacking this system. That makes a lot of advertising, a lot of publicity. In fact, those attacks can be good for spreading the system because now everybody is talking about it.
It is the love of money that is the root of all evil, and with this system, there is less the notion of money being in your pocket. This way, you love your money less because it is really just a means to facilitate exchanges. You can exchange any goods, any services. You cannot as easily love a paper which is really just your handwriting and the signatures of the others. It is not as easy to love this piece of paper as bullion of gold or coins or bank notes. It is really a way to avoid this love of money which is the root of all evil s.
A ruler to create money
This card, this system also gives you the ruler to create money. Just as you have a ruler to measure meters or feet, you have a ruler now to create the money necessary for local community life. With this system, you can allocate money for the basic needs of the poorest. The dividend has to be accepted by the general assembly. Normally we recommend giving a dividend at least equal to the amount necessary to cover the basic needs for the life of the poorest, the sick, the old people present.
And it is now working. For example, in the Philippines they have chosen a dividend with the value of $100 US. And the local economic system has a boom now because there is enough money in the system.
It is essential to socially define the restoring’s periodicals (7 periods) of the economic meters, as asked in Leviticus 25 and thus to repair the error of Charlemagne of March 23, 789 which condemned the interest rate for 1 ‘ 000 years, but which forgot the questioning of properties, at least every 50 years…
Jubilee rules against odious debts…Lev. 25, the Bible
Spread the news
We are looking for people to go all over the world to spread this good news. This good news makes the poorer richer. This also makes local development possible. This too allows the poor to have as much money as they need for the physical needs of the local community. It is really a tool for liberation .
Naturally, in this process, you need to pray, so we always ask the people to pray together before each meeting. And because of the prayers of the Rosary, because of all the prayers of all the Social Credit ers since the foundation of the Movement, it is really giving a lot of fruit.
We need to work fast. For example: in the Philippines, the development is fast because one local bank alone is a plus, but if this bank is alone, it is not enough. You need to spread on a regional level around a city, for example. This way you can exchange all the goods, the food, services; you can exchange everything necessary for the basic needs of life. And it is now happening in the Philippines that the development is going as fast as possible. We are really astonished that they have understood so well with just one month’s teaching. They already opened more banks than we did when we were there. Now we really need people to travel all over the world to spread this idea to others.

Odious debts, odious contracts, the effect of revolving credits on time
“The Money Myth Exploded” was one of the first articles of Louis Even, and remains one of the most popular to explain how money is created as a debt by private banks. It is available in the form of an 8-page leaflet (tabloid format) that you can order from the Michael office, in several languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Polish, Portuguese. You can read an HTML version at the link below.
Two links, one to a film review of Aaron Russo’s film, appropriately titled America: Freedom to Fascism. Focusing on the USA, Russo connects the dots between money creation, voter fraud, the proposed national identity card, the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track citizens and the police state quietly evolving in America. The second is to Connie Fogal’s essay “How the debt based monetary system functions in Canada”. We led off with three quotes.
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of the currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered . . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . the issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the government, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson
If you don’t control your own currency, you cannot control your own economy.” – Eric Kierans
“I am trying to wake America up. That’s why I used that title. Fascism is a reality in America. Fascism is the synergistic effort of big government and big corporations working together to stifle the people. That’s what we have in America today. The corporations have taken over America, and the largest corporation of all is the Federal Reserve System.” – Aaron Russo

Association not for Profit
….. …………………………………………is a Society (hereinafter “Society /
Social Credit”) according to the provisions of art 60 and al. of Swiss Civil Code.
The local head office of the Social Credit will be located in ……………….
And all activities will be limited to the area of ……………..
The objects for which the Social Credit is established are as follows:
(A) To protect and promote the common interests of its members;
(B) To promote, study, advance and protect trading, commercial, financial and
manufacturing interests and relations, as a financial aid to poor people, without any interests.
A Local Social Credit Bank is a business owned and controlled by the people who use its services. They finance and operate the business or service for their mutual benefit. By working together, they can reach an objective that would be unattainable if acting alone.
The purpose of the Local Social Credit Bank is to provide greater benefits to the members such as
increasing individual income or enhancing a member’s way of living by providing important needed
services. The Local Social Credit Bank, for instance, may be the vehicle to obtaining improved markets or
providing sources of supplies or other services otherwise unavailable if members acted alone.
In many respects, Local Social Credit Banks resemble other businesses. They have similar physical
facilities, perform similar functions, and must follow sound business practices. They usually
incorporate under State laws and require bylaws and other necessary legal papers. Members elect a
board of directors to represent their interests. The board sets policy and hires a manager to run
the Local Social Credit Bank’s day-to-day business.
Even though Local Social Credit Banks are similar to many other businesses, they are distinctively
different. Some differences are found in the Local Social Credit Bank’s purpose, ownership, control, and distribution of benefits. Local Social Credit Banks follow three principles that define or identify their distinctive characteristics:
user-owned, user-controlled, and user-benefited.
The user-owned principle means the people who own and finance the Local Social Credit Bank are those who use it. “Use” usually means buying supplies, marketing products, or using services of the
Local Social Credit Bank business.
Members finance the Local Social Credit Bank through different methods: 1) by a direct contribution
through a membership fee or investment; 2) by an agreement to withhold a portion of net
earnings (profit); or 3) by assessments based on units of product sold or purchased 4) By local money creation 5) By distribution of the social dividend 6) By the compensated discount .
Sharing of the profits help finance the Local Social Credit Bank’s operations.
The user-controlled principle (also called democratic control) says those who use the
Local Social Credit Bank also control it by electing a board of directors and voting on major organizational
issues. This is done on a one-member, one-vote basis.
The user-benefited principle says that the Local Social Credit Bank’s sole purpose is to provide and
distribute benefits to members on the basis of their use. Members unite in a Local Social Credit Bank to
receive services otherwise not available, to purchase quality supplies, to increase market
access, or for other mutually beneficial reasons. Members also benefit from distribution of net
earnings or profit based on the individual’s business volume with the Local Social Credit Bank.
To operate under these distinctive principles, an important practice, particularly for
new Local Social Credit Banks, is to conduct continuing member education. This is especially important for attracting and recruiting new members. It is also necessary because the Local Social Credit Bank’s membershipsince conception, continually changes. Older members retire and new ones join.
Keeping owners informed is an important practice for any business, but vital in a
Local Social Credit Bank for at least three reasons:
(1) The democratic control principle, exercised through majority rule, requires that
the entire ownership (members) be informed and involved to assure that enlightened
decisions are made;
(2) Members must indicate their needs and accept the accompanying financial
responsibilities before the Local Social Credit Bank can fulfill those needs; and
(3) Some people are not familiar with the Local Social Credit Bank form of business. The educational
system contains little, if any, information about Local Social Credit Banks.
So, the Local Social Credit Bank, itself, must become the educational institution.
All members sign a declaration not to be a member of any secret society and pay a fine of 1000000 Pesos if the fact is proven
To help in the attainment of these objects, but not in limitation of them, the Social Credit
may inter alia:
* Collect and disseminate statistical and other information relating to the aforesaid
* Maintain the necessary contacts relating to the aforesaid interests with appropriate
government or trade authorities and bodies;
* Promote, support or oppose legislative or other measures affecting the aforesaid
* Undertake by arbitration the settlement of disputes arising out of trading,
commercial, financial or manufacturing questions submitted to its decision;
* Institute through appropriate channels legal or other proceedings for the protection
of any commercial interests in the local community, provided that, and so far as, no breach be committed of the rules of
law against maintenance or champerty, if and so far as such rules of law are
applicable in the country in which such proceedings are instituted;
* Supply, without guarantee, information respecting the standing of companies, firms
and persons in the local community;
* Give advice and assistance to its Members and others in establishing commercial
connections, finding agents and evaluating trade conditions in the
The local community;
* Sell, lease, mortgage or dispose of or otherwise deal with all or any part of the
property of the Social Credit without any interest rate if applicable;
* Do any other lawful things as may be conducive to the extension of any
trade, commerce, finance, manufacturing or economic interests or incidental to the
attainment of any or all of the above objects.
4.01 The Social Credit shall consist of members who may be:
(a) Individual since conception;
(b) Companies or corporations incorporated in, or firms with a place in RP.
(c) Companies or corporations incorporated in, or firms with a place of business in ,
the village (“The village”);
(d) Any other persons, partnerships, companies or corporations which the Council of

Interview with Francois de Siebenthal, July 2008, by Yves et Marie-Anne Jacques
Francois, You are a banker from Switzerland, trained as a professional banker and economist, is that correct?
And you’ve been an economist for how many years?
For more than twenty-five years.
Some textbooks and other sources mislead the people saying that banks lend from the depositors savings. Can you tell us the truth of how this really happens?
The truth is that credit makes deposits, and not the other way around. This means that for example, more than 90% of the money in circulation was created out of thin air. We can estimate that 99,99 % of the US dollar is created out of nothing. We call that Fiat Money, Ex Nihilo. The problem is that on the whole, they have been using the credit system to sustain the growth of the United States, to conserve the American economy at the cost of the poor of the whole world and even from USA.
Recently the financiers even used the real estate market of the United States to uphold the credit industry. They have created massive amounts of credit (Ex Nihilo from thin air) as loans for real estate, and then sold the American mortgages to investors such as Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac at huge profits. They then used the massive import of funds and savings from all over the world to tell the American people that the value of the American industry is rising all the time. But now we have reached a limit in credibility and it (the American dollar) is starting a downslide. It has lost 60% of its value already since the beginning of the Iraq war. The entire system is a lie, and it is causing a massive lack of confidence, and of faith…
When credit is created just to sustain the virtual growth of the economy, there are various ways to get out of it. One of them would be to create a general war with millions of victims, or a bloody revolution, or even a credit crunch such as Japan experienced with its liquidity trap and massive depopulation, or then again, a general collapse of the economy such as in1929.
So this is their solution?
Yes, from my point of view the International bankers are planning new wars and revolutions. I think that the best solution would be to do as the poor people of the US did in 1929; establish local banks with 6,000 local currency systems. We can improve all those local systems and coordinate them, like a franchising chain of free and open local banks sharing the same values and open to all people of good will.
You can find such a proposition at www.pavie.ch with all the details on how to function as it already does in some poor countries.
The dollar will collapse for sure, and you need to persuade everyone to start local systems, improved LETS (Local exchange systems) with dividends and compensated discounts ( see “social credit” on internet). In fact, the dollar is collapsing faster now; its value is going down all the time. For instance, when I began in the banking business the dollar was nearly four Swiss francs to one dollar. Now it is one Swiss franc to one dollar. So it is, in fact, a massive inflation. If a Swiss, for example, wants to buy a Chevrolet, he must convert it to cheese, watches, machinery and other goods. If an American wants to buy a Swiss watch, he pays in dollars. And what is a dollar? It is a piece of paper on which is printed, “One dollar: in God we trust” or just some bits in computers.
Do you think that the reason they want the US dollar to collapse in the United States is because they want to change the dollar for the Amero?
Yes. What they are doing is the same as they did in 1929. The banks print and open more credits to buy more assets very cheap, that way they control most of the people and you can do nothing without their consent. The Patriot Act is a method to dictatorship. They suddenly want to change all notes and put RFID devices in all the currency.
What do you think of people who say we should exchange US dollars to Euros or Japanese Yens?
If the dollar is collapsing and the same people are behind the Euro or the Yen, it will come to the same conclusion. Let’s speak about the Japanese Yen. In Japan there is a big, big problem with the population. One third of the Japanese population will disappear before 2050, It is already beginning. There will be a massive depreciation in the real estate markets and this will create a huge crisis, even bigger than the United States, because the Japanese will not allow immigration. The only solution I can foresee for the Japanese is a massive drop in the price of properties. Already I have information from Japan that they are pushing to establish euthanasia. You know the situation is nearly a war, a war against the weakest in society. They are buying a lot of robots to cope with this trend. The real truth is that they want a massive reduction in the population; by the billions…
Julian Simon said in his book ” the ultimate Resource 1″ that he was paid by those people to prove that Earth was overpopulated, but he wrote books and articles proving exactly the opposite.
The Ultimate Resource (now The Ultimate Resource 2) and Population Matters discuss trends in the United States and the world with respect to resources, environment, and population and the interactions between them. Simon concludes that there is no reason why material life on earth should not continue to improve, and that increasing population contributes to that improvement in the long run. Those popularly-written books develop ideas positive and foresaw the falling natural resource prices, increased world oil supply, and decline in farmland prices. His view of population economics is unique and persuasive. Discussion covers resources, environment, population growth and his analytical methods.
As said on Amazon, Julian L. Simon is the world’s greatest contrarian’s. The Ultimate Resource 2–an update, not a sequel, despite the title–skewers the sacred cows of environmentalism, population control, and Paul Ehrlich. In the contest between resource scarcity and human ingenuity, Simon bets the farm on the ability of intelligent people to overcome their problems. Thankfully, he is not a theorist. This book lays out convincing empirical evidence for Simon’s prediction of a prosperous future. The key to progress is not state-run conservation programs, he says, but economic and political freedom. Only then can talented minds properly apply themselves to our earthly dilemmas.
To read this book, see this link.
He wrote in his book “Population’s matters” how he was ostracized by the “rulers” of the new world disorder.

The members of those Clubs hate poor peoples. Most of these wealthy “New World Order people” are racist, in fact racists of the worst kind. They condition people to believe that our Earth is overpopulated. The poor are corralled like cattle into big cities such as Mexico, to control them and to prove they are right. But in fact, the rest of the Earth is empty. The world is huge and we can feed more people. Ramses of Egypt had this way of thinking and he killed all the male Jews. Now we have “white” bankers living in New York, London and Paris doing the same well-paid job; killing millions or even billions of aborted-children by (financial soft Gulags) to earn billions of dollars.
You should also all see the film: ” Freedom to Fascism” from the Filmmaker Aaron Russo who has exposed his first-hand knowledge of the elite global agenda during a video interview and live on Alex Jones’ nationally-syndicated radio show.
Nick Rockefeller told Russo about the plan to microchip the population, ( see Bilderberg and micro-chip on internet) warned him about ‘an event that would allow us to invade Afghanistan and Iraq’ some eleven months before 9/11 and foretold the fact that the ‘War on Terror’ would be a hoax wherein soldiers would be looking in caves for non-existent enemies. Rockefeller also tried to recruit Aaron Russo to the Council on Foreign Relations during the tenure of their friendship. Now, a picture send by the Russo family verifies that friendship and strengthens evidence of the global agenda which Rockefeller related to the filmmaker so frankly during their private conversations. Russo goes in-depth for first time on the astounding admissions of Nick Rockefeller, including his prediction of 9/11 and the war on terror hoax, the Rockefeller’s creation of women’s lib, and the elite’s ultimate plan for world population reduction and a micro-chipped society Aaron Russo joins Alex Jones for a fascinating sit-down in depth video interview on a plethora of important subjects. In the full interview, available on Google Video, Aaron begins by describing how the draconian and mafia tactics of Chicago police woke him up to the fact that America wasn’t free after his nightclub was routinely raided and he was forced to pay protection money. Aaron and Alex then cover a broad range of topics including the private run for profit federal reserve, Aaron’s experience in the late 80’s with the IRS when they retroactively passed laws to punish silver and gold traders, the real meaning of the word “democracy,” what really happened on 9/11 and Aaron’s relationship with Nick Rockefeller, who personally tried to recruit him on behalf of the CFR. Aaron also relates how Rockefeller told him that the elite created women’s liberation to destroy the family and how they want to ultimately microchip and control the entire population. Rockefeller also told Russo, before 9/11, that an unexpected “event” would catalyze the U.S. to invade Afghanistan and Iraq. After you watch this, please check out the full 69-minute interview.

Can you explain to us briefly, how money is created today and how it should be created? Then maybe we can speak about interest.
In the United States most of the money as credit bearing interest is created by the Federal Reserve Board and other private banks. The Federal Reserve is about as Federal as the Federal Express. That means that it is a private company owned by a few people. I have a list of about 12 families who are the shareholders that own the Federal Reserve. These people are using this private business for their own personal gain to generate private profits of trillions ( sic, trillions) of dollars if you add all amounts generated every year since Christmas 1913, sums hidden in various foundations and trusts in tax heaven “paradises”. Wars are more “profitable” for them ), and not for the benefit of the American people. And on the credit base, which is called let’s say M zero, you have a massive creation of money, and this credit is based on nothing. Alan Greenspan said that they create the money out of thin air. You have the statistics published by the Federal Reserve board. But those figures of M3 have been kept secret since 2006. We don’t know how much the Federal Reserve, which is a private company, is allowing and emitting credit to the other banks or other financial vehicles.
A few months before his assassination, President John F. Kennedy was summoned by his father Joseph to the lobby of the White House. He said to him, “If you do this, they will kill you!” But the President did not deter. On June 4, 1963, he signed the Executive Order number 111 110, repealing the Act and Executive Order number 10,289, calling the production of banknotes into the hands of the state and depriving the cartel of private banks a large part of their power. After $4 billion in U.S. dollars in small denominations called “United States Notes” had already been put into circulation, and while the state was preparing to deliver larger cuts, Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. This happened 100 years after Lincoln, who had created debt free “Greenback” notes for the United States as well, was murdered by a sniper. Kennedy’s successor Lyndon B. Johnson suspended the printing of the notes for an inexplicable reason. The twelve Federal Reserve banks withdrew the Kennedy banknotes immediately from circulation and exchanged them with their own acknowledgments of debt. A few of those notes are still in the hand of Imelda’s Marcos because her husband was trying too to escape the system.
And now, with the sub-prime crisis, they are printing millions or trillions of dollars but we don’t know exactly where the money is going, or they are going to sustain banks that are in bankruptcy. Crooks are sustaining crooks. And of course, all of this money is created with an interest rate. This interest rate is imposed on the American population mainly through taxes, on the backs of the poor. (See the LTCM 3 Trillion dollar scandal under Clinton and many others). The poor all over the world cannot eat; they are starving. And the worse problem that babies are not even allowed to live!
Their goal is to have fewer people that are more easily controlled with laws more and more stupid, such as Monsanto, which patented pigs or plants and ruin farmers to push up prices of food by making believe that they want good of humanity…

The more than one trillion dollars in default, created out of nothing, now as 99,999% of all currency is currently in circulation (SIC).
There is the danger of inflation denounced by Irving Fisher who already complained in 1933 that the issuing of currency belongs to a multitude of irresponsible private agents.
The Fed began with approximately 300 people or banks that became owners (stockholders purchasing stock at $100 per share – the stock is not publicly traded) in the Federal Reserve banking system. They make up an international banking cartel of wealth without comparison. The Fed collects billions of dollars in interest annually and distributes the profits to its shareholders. The Congress illegally gave the Fed the right to print money (through the Treasury) at no interest to the Fed. The Fed creates money from nothing, and loans it back to us through banks, and charges interest on our currency. The Fed also buys Government debt with money printed on a printing press and charges U.S. taxpayer’s interest. Many Congressmen and Presidents have said that this is fraud.
McFadden , Chairman of the House Committee on Banking and Currency from 1920–31, accused the Federal Reserve of deliberately causing the Great Depression. In several speeches made shortly after he lost the chairmanship of the committee, McFadden claimed that the Federal Reserve was run by Wall Street banks and their affiliated European banking houses.
Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us for our hospitality by undermining our American institutions…The people have a valid claim against the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks.
McFadden was killed, as Kennedy, as Lincoln, as many opponents in history to all those usurious systems.

The same who paid to make disappear the most destroyed text in history, the encyclical “Vix pervenit”, the text stating what are good and bad contracts in business.
Who actually owns the Federal Reserve Central Banks? The true ownership of the 12 Central banks, a very well kept secret, has been partially revealed. This is the list of some names:
Rothschild Bank of London
Warburg Bank of Hamburg
Rothschild Bank of Berlin
Lehman Brothers of New York
Lazard Brothers of Paris
Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy
Goldman, Sachs of New York
Warburg Bank of Amsterdam and
Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
These bankers are all connected to London Banking Houses in the totally free City which ultimately control the Fed. When England lost the Revolutionary War with America (our forefathers were fighting their own government), they planned to control us by controlling our banking system, the printing of our money, and our debt.
The individuals listed below owned banks which in turn owned shares in the FED. The banks listed below have significant control over the New York FED District, which controls the other 11 FED Districts. These banks also are partly foreign owned and control the New York FED District Bank.

Well, I think this interview will help the people to understand a bit more the system and what is happening today.
It is better to fight now, and create a credit club or a local system with coupons free of interests, as we wrote about in the “Michael Journal” the example of Madagascar and the Philippines, than to take your gun and fight in a new war!
Please, see http://www.michaeljournal.org/localmoney.htm
The truth is blinding and people don’t see it. They want to see a very complicated system, but in fact the solution is very simple.
During the Great Depression in the 30’s the citizens started 6000 local systems, local credits all over the United States. Tell people to study the history of their country. While they were creating their own credits, the big banks were stopped. Do the same! Improve it with Social Credit systems and dividends to all to share the profits of the robots and the computers !
90 % of the workload will be done by computers and robots, the challenge is how to distribute abundance.
Well, I think that’s the plan of the Pilgrims of St. Michael, we want to start the local exchange systems all over the world. I know that in Columbia they have several systems that are working very well.
In the United States, your grandfathers were the organizers of the local systems. Ask them how it was done. You had more than 6’000 systems all over the United States. The WIR system in Switzerland has made our country one of the richest in the world. ( www.wir.ch ) . Just think of what happened in Argentina when the banks collapsed there. That can happen here now as well.
Maurice Allais, Professor of Economics at the National School of Mining Engineering in Paris, France and the 1988 Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, had this to say in his book “Les Conditions Monétaires d’une Economie de Marché” (The Monetary Conditions of a Market Economy p. 2):
“In essence, the present creation of money, out of nothing, by the banking system is, I do not hesitate to say it in order to make people clearly realize what is at stake here, similar to the creation of money by counterfeiters so rightly condemned by law. In concrete terms, it leads to the same results.”
We need to practice all five Shabbats and Jubilees, every 7 days, weeks, months, years and 49 years ( 7 times 7 years) and fight usury at all levels, because usury kills.
Please, read this extract from Louis Even.
But what about the term “usury practiced under another form” used by the Pope? Does it mean too high an interest rate? If so, of what percentage? Or is it something else, and under what form?
In a book he wrote in 1935, an English priest, Father Drinkwater, identified this “devouring usury under another form” as the monopolization of credit, which was to amount more and more to a monopolization of money, although the workings of this monopolization of credit were stll myserious, at that time, to almost everyone.
Father Drinkwater recorded that a committee based at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, had prepared some elements for the drafting of “Rerum Novarum”, and that among the members of this committee there was at least one person, from Austria, who was well aware of the money question and of bank credit. A text that this Austrian had prepared, and that was apparently approved by the committee, showed clearly how mere bank money — which is created in banks and consists basically of figures written in bank-books and ledgers, and which was already becoming the major monetary instrument for trade and industry — was nothing but the monetization of the production capacity of the whole community. The new money thus created can only be social by nature (belonging to all of society), and not the property of the bank. This new money is social because of its basis: the community, or society, and because it can buy any good or service in the country. The control of this source of money therefore puts in the hands of those who exercise it, a discretionary power over all economic life.
This text of the Austrian expert also showed that banks do not lend their depositors’ money, but rather deposits that they create out of nothing simply by inscribing figures in bank-books, and that when banks lend money — no account is diminished in the bank — they do not have to extract one penny from their safes. So the interest charged on their loans is certainly usury: whatever its rate — it is actually more than 100%, since it is interest charged on a capital of zero, nil — the lender (the bank) does not have to do without the money he lends, he just creates it! This usury can rightly be described as “devouring”, since banks require creditors to pay back money that has never been created, that has never been put into circulation. (Banks create the principal they lend, but not the interest.) It is therefore mathematically impossible to pay back all loans; the only way for the economy in such a system to keep going is to borrow again to pay the interest, which creates un repayable private and public debts.
What was the exact wording of this text about the monopoly of credit? One cannot know, since there is no mention of it in the encyclical. Was it suppressed in Fribourg in the final draft sent to Rome? Was it stolen between Fribourg and Rome, or between its arrival in Rome and its delivery to the Sovereign Pontiff? Or was it Pope Leo XIII who decided to put it aside? Father Drinkwater raises these questions, but gives no answer.
End of quote.
This scandal is producing absurd situation as in Canada (see 2 graphs below)
Let us quote Mackenzie King, while he was campaigning, in 1935, to become Prime Minister of Canada: “Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.”

Switzerland was the poorest country in the world.
Financial Crisis is when the public loses confidence in financial
institutions such as banks, and therefore want actual legal money from
them, rather than their promises to pay, which are normally accepted
as money. This takes us back to the many sorts of money that we can
use in our economy. One is legal tender money, coins and notes issued
by or on behalf of the state, which creditors are legally obliged to
accept in settlement of what is owed to them.
The second is bank created credit (nearly 100 % of the total money
supply), which is no more than a bank’s promise to deliver legal
tender money on demand, given in exchange for a borrower’s promise to
repay, usually over a period of time.
The others are all other means used as money ( coupons, tires, reka,
1) Money #1 cannot hardly be destroyed, and therefore
circulates from producers to consumers and back again. M1 is public in
Switzerland but private in many countries, the US FED is owned by
private people and work for their pockets.
2) Money #2, 3, 4,and so on are
continually being created and destroyed ( maybe not destroyed but recycled…) by private banks for profits, as loans are made and repaid. This leads therefore to “trade cycles”,
where inflation alternates with recession, as bank money is created
and withdrawn. A particular effect of financing business capital
through bank loans (a very common practice) is to create credit money with interest rates at a time when capital goods (factories, machinery, etc. etc) are
being produced, workers are receiving incomes, but nothing more is
going on the market for people to buy. When the factory is completed,
and workers are laid off, goods start reaching the market, businessmen
start wanting to repay their bank loans, but the laid off workers now
have no money either to buy the products, and the businessman
therefore finds it impossible to repay his bank financing. (This
explains the Douglas A+B theorem, where A is wages, and B is capital
Therefore we have recessions, wars, revolutions, troubles
The current banking system causes poverty in front of abundance in all countries and for all people. The interest bearing loans are for the most part made only by paperwork from nothingness, ie counterfeit currency, as written in 1988 by Mr. Maurice Allais, Nobel Prize in Economics

Report summarized of a small community of creditists.
To begin, the social crediters came from Canada and Switzerland
and provided 100 $ CDN of hens in 2004, plus the countable
notebooks, the large countable book, the pencils and two envoys on
the spot during a day, with the formation of one responsible local
person during a few hours and three visits of a local specialist
trained in Canada. 4 zebus (1000 $ ) were given in 2006. The saffron
bulbs were lost in the post office. The community is composed of
66 people in quasi autarkical situation, without electricity nor
telephone and 100 % ecologist.
There is 0 pollution.
Thanks to the system, no more usury at around 1’000 percent
interest. They more than doubled the production of rice and
vegetables. Despite several hurricanes, they could build or rebuild
all buildings themselves, including the Church, the
improve all their houses of terra cotta bricks. They built in more of
the cattle sheds and the shelters for 7 zebus (from 4 to 7), for
1454 hens, a school and began to build a multifunction center. 148
chickens were eaten and 346 sold. They also made a system of
irrigation, with 5 permanent dams and several provisional dams to
improve. The roads all are remade thanks to the communal efforts.
The total value of the appreciations is higher than 5 million local
currency. The requirements of official money are met by the sale
for eggs and hens.
People: They engaged three teachers, a fourth arrives. A person became
the doctor of the area. The committee meets at least once per
week. The families pray three times per day, Lauds, complies and
vespers. They make recollections and retirements.

Quote of Michael Lane….February 2005
Since April 2002 I have been urging on the world social credit
community — in a letter to my fellow directors of the Social Credit
Secretariat, in issue after issue of Triumph of the Past , in Bill
Ryan’s social credit e-mail discussion group, in the concluding
chapter of my book on Charles Ferguson, in five talks in Australia and
New Zealand in October 2002, and on the Australian League of Rights
website — that we no longer wait but implement social credit
immediately at the local level, adapting Douglas’s ideas for that
Last May two representatives of the Pilgrims of St. Michael –
full-time pilgrim Marcel Lefebvre and “our good friend of Switzerland,
Mr. Francois de Siebenthal consul general of the Philippines and an
economist” – visited Madagascar as guests of the Catholic Episcopal
Commission on Justice and Peace. The following is the account of this
visit published in the Pilgrims’ Michael journal for May-July 2004:
Then we went into the bush, driven by the secretary, in the pastor’s
“4 x 4” vehicle. We were invited by the Secretary General of the
Justice and Peace Commission, Mr. Jean Marie, a father of 8 children,
who is involved with church activities. He managed to gather all the
people of the village to meet us.
We began with the recitation of the Rosary, and then gave a talk on
the cause of their poverty, and the way out, by establishing a local
money system, like in Switzerland and in Argentine, where they call it
“social credits.” We told them about the possibility of creating their
own figures (money) to develop their area, without waiting for the
International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and all the other
money-lenders who exploit them. We founded together the first Social
Credit bank, just as the five islanders did in ” The Money Myth
Exploded .” They brought all their belongings to create a fund to
start the new bank. It was really moving and impressive to see them
bring all they had. They are really good people. Bishop Raymond told
us that within a year, there will be 500 small banks like this one in
So where we founded this first bank, we gave a Rosary to every family
that enlisted, and made them promise to say the family Rosary every
day for the success of this important undertaking. Before founding the
bank, Mr. de Siebenthal asked the priest who was accompanying us to
confess the Faithful. There will be no interest charged in this bank;
on the contrary, dividends will soon be given to every participant.
They will develop their own area in an impressive manner.
De Siebenthal gave a presentation about this at the Pilgrims’ Annual
Congress in September at their center in Rougemont, Quebec. From
October-December issue of Michael :
Mr. Francois de Siebenthal spoke to us of his apostolate with Mr.
Marcel Lefebvre in Madagascar last May. In a small county in the bush,
far from large cities, our two fervent Social Crediters established
Social Credit in a simple manner, a bit like the story in ” The Money
Myth .” “Madagascar,” Mr. de Siebenthal told us, “is the concrete
example of a talk given by Mr. Louis Even. I re-read all the early
writings by Louis Even in a small pamphlet. He spoke of Switzerland,
of methods, of referendums, and of local banks in Switzerland. We
simply applied this project from the 1930’s of Louis Even, applied it
Guest speaker Bill Daly of New Zealand summarized de Siebenthal’s
presentation as follows:
An experienced banker, now working for a Catholic TV station, he had
only a short while before heard of Social Credit. But being a man of
action he had earlier in 2004 spent several weeks at Rougemont
learning as much as possible and had then gone to Madagascar with a
colleague and started a small local credit scheme in one of the
remotest and poorest districts. While initially very simple it is
intended to introduce other aspects as the scheme develops, such as a
national dividend and the compensated price. The Cardinal of
Madagascar wants to see such schemes established in every one of his
more than 100 parishes.
This exciting idea became a main focal point of the Congress. Again
from Bill Daly:
What was evident at Rougemont was the new possibility of such
developments emerging within, but not exclusively, the third world.
More than one Bishop was present from Mexico and the Philippines and
there were a number of priests and lay professional people, some
associated with universities. . . . Certainly those attending from
Poland, Mexico, Ecuador, Benin and the Philippines only demonstrated
great enthusiasm and hope for genuine reform in their own diocese,
parishes, towns and countries.
Another speaker, Vic Bridger of Australia, put it this way:
It was stimulating because of the enthusiasm shown by all the
delegates from Poland, Mexico, Ecuador, and the Philippines in
particular. . . . Each of the Bishops and Monseigneurs [Monsignors]
declared that they would be furthering the cause through their
pulpits. . . . I left the Congress with the view that it may well be
the poorer countries who will give the lead because they have nothing
to lose but their poverty.
According to the same issue of Michael , “Fr. Jozef Jakubiec and
Doctor Jan Wilk want to found, at the Shrine of the Holy Family in
Krakow . . . a bank that lends interest-free money, working along the
Social Credit principles.” Finally, a recent Pilgrims flyer released
in advance of a series of public meetings in New Zealand says: “With
the help of local church and community leaders they initiated an
exciting complementary currency in an impoverished area of Madagascar.
Presently similar projects are planned in Poland, the Philippines and
Actually, the first interest of the Pilgrims in this concept can be
dated a little earlier, namely, a conference at Zakopane, Poland in
December 2003, hosted by that same Fr. Ja kubiec. In an e-mail to the
Social Credit Action Group, Diane Boucher, who represents the Pilgrims
and has a master’s degree in economics, states:
The subject of the conference in Zakopane was about practical ways to
implement social credit policies. People interested in social credit
in Poland do not want to use a top-down strategy but a bottom-up one.
That is to say they choose not to implement social credit at the
national level, but to create small communities using local monies. .
. . People in the Louis Even Institute [Pilgrims] think that the way
Poland chose is a good way to begin an implementation of a social
It is now going on a year since the foundation of the “first Social
Credit bank.” But not only have we had no progress report, we don’t
even know what was done in the first place. The sketchy account above
is all that has been published. Diane Boucher has supplied a little
more information in two e-mails to the Social Credit Action Group:
September 3, 2004: What the villagers did with their belongings was to
put a monetary value on them. So the accountant of the Bank was able
to write these values to the account of each member of the Social
Credit Bank. The credit (positive side) transaction and debit
(negative side) transaction . . . are simply written in a small
accounting booklet for each member and in the great book of the
accountant during each sale. When somebody needs credits to make
products, the accountant writes the new credits in the producer’s
account. So the new credits are created with the new production.
Without any interest. The credits are cancelled when the products are
sold, that is to say they are cancelled with the consumption of the
products. Periodically, new credits are written to the accounts of
every member of the Social Credit Bank in the measure where there is
social progress. It is the (local) dividend. It is the same way of
functioning as in the story of the five islanders. The discount is not
implemented yet, because this economy is very simple. When it will
become enough complex to have producers of intermediate goods or
equipment goods, it will be necessary to implement the discount to
consumers with compensation to the producers.
October 5, 2004: Their belongings are their private properties: cows,
hens, tools, etc. they can use as producers, plus the communal
property: the school being built, for example. They brought these
properties together to give a value to the local assets. These assets
will grow with social progress and their monetary value will increase.
The local dividend will be calculated on the value of the local
assets. For example, the school will have a greater value when
finished and the dividend will be greater because of this increased
value. If a typhoon destroys the school, the monetary value of the
local assets will decrease and the next dividend will be lower.
I think that the villagers’ belongings are not a collateral: the new
credits are created to equal the value of the new products being made
by the local producers, not to equate the value of the local assets.
For example, the eggs from the hens are new products and have a market
value based on the producer’s cost: if a child takes care of the hens
and the hens feed themselves around, the value of the child labour is
the cost of the eggs. The eggs will be used as food and also in an old
roman recipe to make cement for building the school. The villagers
were unable to finish the building because they are too poor to buy
It is really a social credit experiment on a small scale. The credit
of this small community has a value as a productive capacity!
To this small cache of evidence we can add the passage alluded to from
” The Money Myth Exploded ,” by Louis Even, founder of the Pilgrims of
St. Michael. The pamphlet is an illustration of economics on a desert
isle, such as economists have been making for centuries. There are
five castaways: a carpenter, a farmer, an animal breeder, an arborist,
and a metallurgist. The relevant passage is in the words of Tom, the
I open an account in the name of each of you. In the right hand column
are the credits which increase your account; to the left are the
debits which subtract from your account. Each wants $200 to begin
with. Very well. We write $200 to the credit of each. Each immediately
has $200. Frank buys some goods from Paul for $10. I deduct $10 from
Frank leaving him $190. I add $10 to Paul and he now has $210. Jim
buys from Paul to the amount of $8. I deduct from Jim $8 leaving him
$192. Paul now has $218. Paul buys wood from Frank for $15. I deduct
$15 from Paul leaving $203. I add $15 to Frank’s account and it goes
back to $205. And so we continue; from one account to another in the
same fashion as paper banknotes from one man’s pocket to another’s. If
someone needs money to expand production, we issue him the necessary
amount of new credit. Once he has sold his products he repays the sum
to the credit fund. The same with public works; paid for by new
credits. Likewise, each one’s account is periodically increased but
without taking credits from anyone, in order that all may benefit from
the progress society makes. That’s the national dividend. In this
fashion money becomes an instrument of service.
We have to make the best here of very scanty information. I submitted
it to Tom Greco, an expert in alternate currency systems, and he
concurred: “The details in that account are insufficient to make a
proper assessment.” We don’t know the name of the village. We know
nothing about its size, ethnicity, language, history, manners and
customs, social structure, or civic life. It appears to be a Catholic
village. We know nothing about its diet, clothing, shelter,
sanitation, health care, natural resources, distance from a road,
distance from a town. We don’t know what it produces besides milk and
eggs. We don’t know where it gets its tools. 1 We don’t know what
products it most needs from outside itself. We don’t know if is in
I think we can assume that money is so scarce there that it is
virtually a moneyless economy. The school building project was halted
because the village was too poor to buy cement. The people probably
made their own bricks by pouring mud into wooden forms and baking them
in the sun, but the mortar to hold them together would have to come
from outside. 2 They have plenty of eggs, so if they can make a
cement from eggs, they can be more self-sufficient.
Each member 3 was provided with a “small accounting booklet,” and the
“accountant of the Bank” keeps a “great book.” The villagers
physically brought their “cows, hens, tools, etc they can use as
producers” to one place, the accountant put a value on them in the new
unit (we aren’t told what it was called), and that became their
initial account balance both in their own booklets and in the great
book. This was not a loan but the representation, in figures, of what
they already owned. The village thus took a step forward from a
moneyless economy to a money economy. The villagers now had a simple
way to trade around their cows, hens, and tools according as each had
need and opportunity to make use of them. The assessment provided a
basis for prices: people knew what a hen was assessed for and would
not expect to pay more unless there were a reason.
In addition, anyone with a good plan could have his account written up
in advance on the strength of the goods he was likely to produce. This
would be a loan, signifying the village’s faith in him as a producer.
To use Boucher’s example, you could get an advance from the Social
Credit Bank to pay your next-door neighbor’s child to take care of
your laying hens. You could then sell those eggs to someone or to the
community to make cement for the school and repay your advance, all by
means of these ledgers.
“The same with public works; paid for by new credits,” says Tom. In
other words, the village council will also have its own account, which
will be credited with the budgeted amount for the school. This would
be expended on eggs to make the cement and perhaps also on labor if
the labor is not a share-and-share-alike undertaking. This money would
be recouped, I would guess, from parents’ paying new credits to send
their kids there. Is it anticipated that the school will serve
neighboring villages as well and, if so, how will they pay?
So far, this describes a change from a moneyless economy to a money
economy but without any specifically social credit features. Boucher
states, “These assets will grow with social progress and their
monetary value will increase. The local dividend will be calculated on
the value of the local assets.” She also implies that the initial
booklet entries included a share to each of the value of the partially
completed school building and that the completed building would
generate a monetary dividend in every member’s account booklet.
I fear this is not sound. There is no justification for writing up
people’s money accounts merely on the basis of increased local assets.
In fact, there is no justification for writing up people’s accounts
initially on the strength of their “private property: cows, hens,
tools, etc. they can use as producers, plus the communal property.”
Their accounts should only be written up for new goods and services
that they can buy. 4 And why are milk and eggs – more likely to be
sold than hens and cows – left out of the account?
There seems to be confusion as to whether the new credits issued to
the egg producer and the school represent the eggs and education it is
hoped they will produce or (as it should) an allocation of the things
they or their paid workers will buy with them immediately. It cannot

new money on the strength of goods yet to be produced without regard
to what exists to buy with it?
Dividends will be payable as the village economy succeeds in producing
the same sufficiency with less and less loan money. Less money/time
required for production means more money/time freed for consumption.
Both Bishop Raymond and the cardinal of Madagascar hope to found other
banks along the same lines. Will they all use the same unit, or will
each use its own? The Pilgrims hope to found other banks along the
same lines in other countries. What problems have arisen in the
operation of the village bank, how were they addressed, and with what
success? Has this experience enabled the Pilgrims to make any
improvements to their model?
I call on the Pilgrims of St. Michael to issue a thorough report on
the “first Social Credit bank” so that other communities can benefit
from the experience of this Madagascar village and create similar
institutions for themselves to help raise themselves out of poverty!
1. When I was in the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone, the village
blacksmith made tools out of scrap metal from Datsuns.
2. In Sierra Leone, the people in my village made bricks in exactly

the Robert Heinlein science fiction book describing such a system,

surprise to those who were not acquainted with Heinlein’s early
At a number of points in For Us, the Living , Heinlein describes an
environment in which individuals are able to choose whether or not to
accept a job. Passing references are made to the large number of
individuals who take up art or other careers that traditionally do not
pay well. The book also points out the short working hours and high
wages paid to employees. The book ascribes this flexible working
environment to the social credit system (the “Dividend”) adopted by

the technology to give more free time for the best ? Most of the work
can be done by robots, computers and so on… You need to organize as
Singapoor did, taking some ideas from the swiss. You can copy our
legal articles of ass.
Switzerland is one of the poorest country in natural ressources but Swiss are rich, why ?
Switzerland has two money systems, one is free, no interests, see “bank wir” on google…
I can sense your frustration between the armchair social credit arguments, and the true activists of monetary reform. But among the audience of such there may be people that can actually help, so not all audiences can be put into one
The truth in North America at least, are that many people who strive for Christian justice in many areas , such as protecting the unborn like myself, and have been highly discriminated against in our jobs and income, and so often, we too have only the grace of God to depend on for our daily income.
