Reforming our Monetary System – Challenges and Opportunities

Money Talks returns with Michael White and Steven Walsh of the American Monetary Institute to discuss monetary Reform

Over the last twenty years, calls for a fundamental reform of the monetary system have taken various shapes. Their common thread lies in the dissatisfaction with the current privately-generated money supply, which is premised on perpetual debt creation underwritten by the central bank. In this Money Talk workshop, Michael White and Steven Walsh will discuss major developments in the history of money and reform in America and the world, culminating in contemporary ‘state of the art’ approaches to reform, including opening up Reserve accounts and an introduction to how parity pricing for raw materials could radically improve a future economy.

Michael White is a historian and international teacher, he has been researching and writing a book on understanding money and monetary history. Steve Walsh is a Chicago based school teacher and organizer. He is one of the leaders American Monetary Institute, and has been active in parity pricing for farmers in recent years.

Date: Friday, November 1
Speakers: Michael White and Steven Walsh 
Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

    MONETARY POLICY, ASSET INFLATION AND INEQUALITY

    Thu, June 17, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT


    In this webinar, Pr. Louis Philippe Rochon takes a fresh look at the links between monetary policy, asset bubbles and inequality.

    It is often argued that asset inflation and real estate bubbles are the result of accommodative monetary policy: low interest rates encourages borrowing for speculative purposes.

    Undoubtedly, this has been the case as an increasing part of borrowing is not meant for productive purposes.

    In this webinar, Prof. Rochon will argue that this is a misreading of the facts. Rather than laying the blame at the feet of low interest rates, bubbles may be caused by growing inequality as well as by the excessive deregulation.

    Learn why governments need to re-regulate borrowing and, introduce such policies as financial transaction taxes to prevent asset inflation and specifically real estate bubbles.

    A link to join the online seminar will be provided via email before the start of the webinar.
