What is the C.H. Douglas Institute?

HummingbirdThe C.H. Douglas Institute is a registered not-for-profit organization that is committed to furthering Social Credit education and facilitating Social Credit advocacy. ‘Social Credit’ being the name which is typically given to that coherent and cogent body of thought on social matters that was first developed in the early decades of the twentieth century by the brilliant Anglo-Scottish engineer, Major Clifford Hugh Douglas. On the one hand, the institute seeks to introduce the wider public to Douglas’ economic, political, and cultural ideas, while deepening the understanding of those who have already had some exposure to Social Credit. On the other hand, we wish to bolster the efforts of all those who have grasped the tremendous value and relevance of the Social Credit analysis and remedial proposals and who therefore wish to work for the establishment of a Social Credit commonwealth. This institute proposes to provide the necessary assistance by serving as a co-ordinating and resource centre for the wider Social Credit movement. Although based in the province of Ontario, Canada, we are keenly interested in assisting all suitably motivated individuals and groups, wherever they may be, in their endeavour to bring their respective societies into greater alignment with Social Credit principles.

  • Problems with Taxes
    Relying on bank credit, indirectly through taxation or directly via borrowing, to fund a Universal Basic Income (UBI) scheme is untenable. A fundamental reform of the financial system is the only viable means to ensure a future in which sustainable purchasing power is in the hands of the Canadian consumer. There is no need to take from Peter to give to Paul. Not one penny of anyone’s income would need to be redistributed. There is enough for everyone to have an income, a UBI, under a corrected financial system as advocated by Douglas Social Credit.

  • Living Beyond Your Means
    We are often told that people should not ‘live beyond their means’, that is, that no individual person, nor any corporate entity like a business or a government, should spend more money during a given period than they take in as income or as revenue. Doing so is judged to be profligate, irresponsible, and only setting oneself up for pain in the long run. For countless centuries, if not millennia, the balanced ‘budget’ has been regarded as the sine qua non of fiscal prudence and ‘sound’ finance. And yet, if we look at our economies over any given period of time, it is quite normal for individual consumers, considered in the aggregate, to spend more than they receive in income, for governments at all levels to spend more than they take in viataxes, and even for businesses, considered again as a whole, to spend more money (thanks to long-term capital…
