“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes … Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency, and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government, and the buying power of consumers." 

Abraham Lincoln

“Until control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of sovereignty of Parliament and democracy is idle and futile … Once a nation parts with its credit, it matters not who makes the nation’s laws … Usury once in control will wreck any nation.” 

William Lyon Mackenzie King, former Prime Minister of Canada

We need a ‘New Economics Movement’ to re-affirm these basic economic truths, even though they are far from new - for they were already recognised by the Spartans, the ancient Greeks and their  philosophers, by Roman and Byzantine emperors - and by most the English monarchs from the twelfth century - and until the creation of a privately-owned 'Bank of England' in the 17th Century - the model for the total monopoly over money creation and credit held by today's global international banks.

WHAT IS THE NEW ECONOMICS MOVEMENT?

The New Economics Movement (NEMO) is a vision to create an alliance of all organisations, foundations, institutes, think tanks, authors, activists, speakers and writers promoting a ‘new economics’. More specifically, its aim is to promote such an alliance in order for it to prepare to engage in active political campaigning at election times. This will be done by cooperatively funding  individuals prepared to independently campaign for election – whether under the rubric of a newly registered political party, as independents, or as independently-minded members of existing parties who support the principal goal of the New Economics Movement, i.e. abolishing the monopoly of commercial banks on new money creation and instead restoring the power of governments to directly create and issue money for public spending without borrowing from commercial banks.  A key role of the New Economics Movement will be to provide copywriting support for on- and off-line electoral campaigning in a language that the ordinary voter can understand, and that serves to expose in simple terms the entrenched belief that government spending is dependent solely on taxation or borrowing. In addition, the New Economics Movement has prepared an outline strategy for fighting back against ‘austerity terrorism’ – the class war of the rich against the poor - and building a fully public ‘National People’s Bank’ from the ground up. This will be done through the free issue and distribution of a new form of national currency not based on debt or taxation - and not redeemable in official currency.  All individuals, groups and organisations wishing to form part of a ‘New Economics Alliance’ on which a New Economics Movement can be founded and its key strategy pursued – freely distributing a new national currency -  may contact me either directly (peter_wilberg@tiscali.co.uk ) or through this provisional website of The New Economics Movement.
