Big banks have been caught in a massive scam to rig global interest rates,
ripping off millions of people
on their mortgages,
student loans and more!
We’d go to jail for this,
but Barclays bank has only been fined,
and just a fraction of their profits! Outrage is mounting
– this is our chance to finally turn the tide of the banks’ reign over our democracies.

Escape From Economics (book list)
Readers ask me from time to time to recommend a book from which they can learn about economics.
The problem with reading a book to learn economics
that is taught in the universities and practiced in Washington,
is that economics is now a highly formalized subject based on abstract models and assumptions and has been mathematized.
It is not that the subject is totally useless and without any applicability to real world problems.
the problem is that the discipline both lags an ever-changing world
and it got some things wrong at the beginning.
learning economics places one inside a box
where some of the tools and understanding provided are outdated and incorrect.
Empower Yourself Using Books
One of the top questions I get is
“Where can I find the information to back up what you said on the radio show?”,
the answer is simple … READ.
Get as many physical copies of books as possible.
Even if the power grid goes down
we can still read by sunlight and candlelight.
