They don’t?  Banks don’t lend money?  “Since when?” you might ask, only to find out they never did – at least according to this week’s featured guest, Southampton University’s noted professor Dr. Richard Werner. Common misperceptions about how banking works distort our reality about banking functions and capabilities by seasoned semantic miscues that make us think we’re borrowing the bank’s money when they never had it to begin with, and that we’re just letting them hold our money when we make a “deposit” when, in fact and law, we’re giving it to them. This week’s edition will let you look at banking and its current realities in new light, and we even take you back a couple hundred years to see how banking’s deceptive role-playing shaped our nation’s history.

When we look back at the history of banking in America, we can see the formative patterns that have shaped that industry over the past couple hundred years. Ellen’s guest, Jim Hogue, in a reprise of their earlier conversation, discusses who and what players were on the stage at the outset of our country, and how their ghosts continue to haunt the banking industry. Looking forward, Ellen discusses our infrastructure finance challenges and a simple way for CA, and the US, to save trillions of dollars over the coming years.  And, what will the consumer culture of the future look like? Can we maintain our consumption-based economic system?  Author and Dr. Maurie Cohen discusses his book The Future of Consumer Society – Prospects for Sustainability in the New Economy.
