1. extreme inequality campaign presented at AFL-CIO in DC &
money as debt (Stephen Bezruchka)
Yesterday a group of people including Sam Pizzigati, who wrote the book
Greed and Good, did a presentation at the union headquarters in DC about
the exteme inequality that has taken over this country. Titled Extreme
Inequality: Starting a Strategic Conversation.
Upon request I can send a pdf of the slides Sam used that is 3.3 mb. They
speak for themselves, with much data as well as quotes from the past and
some suggestions to consider for decreasing inequality by taxing the
super-rich. Let me know and I'll send you the file and perhaps you can
use it in talking with people at the situation in this country.
Another great resource is the 47 minute video about what money represents
in our society, and how it is founded in debt. I learned about how banks
can create money out of almost nothing, back in 1992, and wondered why
this subject gets no attention. Even economists in a poll back in the
1950s didn't think this possible, but my graduate course in economics at
JHU took us through the exercise that is well done in this video that also
talks about alternatives to this system that favors guess who?
You can download the entertaining video (produced by Paul Grignon, someone
who just wondered about money at an early age) at
and get many more details, including quotes, references, and DVD purchase
