Among emerging monetary ideas that could change our economic future is a new blockbuster notion: give each of us our very own account at the Fed, just like the Big Banks! It’s a well-developed, transformative idea being supported by high-level Treasury veterans as well as our own Ellen Brown, who discusses it’s great potential on this edition. Like other systemic changes needed to create a more fair economy, the “big idea” must first be envisioned, then adopted, for transformative changes to be realized. That is how it happened in Scandinavia about a hundred years ago, which threw out its controlling 1% and turned squalor into globally-renowned abundance.  We talk with author & professor George Lakey about those “Viking Economics.”  And commentator Bob Bows gives you the 8-minute chapter-and-verse description of why our current monetary matrix is beyond redemption.

The lock-down on control of our money by private banks is facing increased challenge in a variety of forms, from technology that creates new methods of exchange, to the public uprising for creation of new public banks. Today we speak with an exciting group of young activists in CA that have already accomplished some remarkable achievements, including a unanimous vote by the Los Angeles city council to foster a public bank and divest from Well Fargo, based on ethical demands. The student loan crisis is also receiving an ethical challenge from Andrew Yang, who has started his campaign for the 2020 presidential race calling for a universal basic income.  And Ellen discusses how the massive hedge funds Black Rock and Black Stone control trillions of public dollars investment that exert overbearing pressure on how our money gets invested to create private profits rather than public benefits.
