Synopsis

Money is one of humanitys most ingenious inventions, responsible for many significant advances in the history of civilization. By serving as a medium of exchange it facilitates the trade of goods and services and allows for specialization and the division of labor. However, inflation and compound interest have caused our monetary system to balloon to the point where bailing out banks, large corporations, and even entire countries will not prevent a complete breakdown of the global economy unless we change the system in fundamental ways.Occupy Money is a clarion call for a new, grassroots movement to knock conventional money off its pedestal and replace it with a fresh paradigm that puts people before profits. This guide for the 99% provides an alternative to the Age of Austerity, envisioning the creation of a sustainable monetary system that:• Favors stability over speculation• Eliminates inflation and artificial currency fluctuations• Replaces interest with interest-free loans and demurrage, which rewards currency circulation.For many years financial insiders have hidden economic truths by describing them in arcane terms that no layperson can understand. Occupy Money uses clear, simple and concise language to explain why money should serve people instead of people serving money, and in doing so issues a challenge to the very foundations of conventional economic doctrine. A must-read.
