Social Credit Perspectives: What is Wrong with the Economy?

I can demonstrate the fundamental gap or “shortage of money” that is built into the money system the entire world – without exception – is using at both a macro and micro level so that it becomes obvious that the analysis is correct.

Macro proof: If you consider the US, its GDP is presently about $14T/year. This is the PRICE that was ACTUALLY achieved for the purchase of all the goods and services produced by the US for the stated year. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the total wages, earnings and dividends reported to the IRS comes to $8T. $14T - $8T = $6T GAP or shortage of purchasing power. Divide the number of American men, women and children into that and it comes to about a $16K per capita SHORTAGE OF MONEY.

Micro proof: Consider any good or service and ask yourself: "Is there anything offered whose price is only comprised of wages, earnings and/or dividends?" The conclusion is always no. Now ask yourself: "Is there any good or service that has no price component consisting of wages, earnings or dividends? Again the obvious answer is no.

The inevitable conclusion is that wages, earnings and dividends cannot possibly pay for the goods the earners have worked to produce. So the skeptic then asks, “Well then how could the price of $14T have been paid for in full? ” The answer is the secret the banksters don’t want you to realize. The money needed to make up for the deficiency in purchasing power IS BORROWED! AT INTEREST! FOR THEIR EXCLUSIVE BENEFIT! How so? Government bonds, taxation (the extraction of interest mechanism), corporate lines of credit, venture capital, home loans, car loans, credit cards, personal lines of credit. All these serve to fill the gap in purchasing power. All we are doing is continuously kicking the can of debt down the road with the inevitable and relentless result that public, private, and corporate debt is ever expanding and prices (i.e., cost-push inflation) are ever rising. We are all debt slaves and the master is the banksters.

How do they keep sucking us into this trap? We have all bought into the lie that we need to WORK FOR THE MEANS OF OUR BREAD. This is salvation by work. We need salvation by grace – the free gift of excess capacity that technology has won humanity as a whole so that we – humanity - have, in fact, already EARNED a certain amount of rest from work! In other words, we need the gap to be filled by an adequate volume of debt-free money that is freely distributed to consumers.

  • 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…

  • Why Overt Monetary Financing of a UBI Need Not Result in Demand Inflation
    When one explains to the common person the proposal of a National Dividend as a state created and distributed monetary gift given to all as a credit for the nation’s total production, there is one very common objection or concern that people often raise. They think that there is a danger that this will result in inflation or a devaluing of the nation’s currency, a devaluation that may even been as bad as the hyperinflation that has recently taken place in Zimbabwe or Venezuela as a result of severe political corruption, incompetence, or foreign interference. But before one can understand why a 'debt-free' 'basic income' is not inflationary, or need not be inflationary, one must first understand something of the economic and monetary theory upon which this suggestion is based, namely Douglas Social Credit.
