In this premier episode of Beyond Money Podcast, Thomas Greco discusses what money is, how it's "created", what is problematic and dysfunctional about the present money system, and what can be done to decentralize and democratize the way we pay for goods and services.
This is an exciting hour, packed with a condensed history of banking and money creation, from the founding of the Bank of England, to the Age of Jackson, and our current era of the Federal Reserve System and the global network of central banks.
Taking inspiration from the likes of John Kenneth Galbraith and E.C. Riegel, Greco describes how we the people can take back our money power, escape the domination by the global monetary elites, and restore true democracy by the improvement and proliferation of proven mechanisms of credit allocation and management.
