This monetary seminar will focus on why our money system is not working 
for America and will include the following topics:

• America's Monetary Power has been usurped and privatized, leading to war.

• How and why the money power must be restored to society where it can 
be used to promote the general welfare, instead of corrupt private agendas.

• How the money power became privatized, and is kept in place by false 

• How a three step program restores it to society.

• Why inflation need not be a problem.

• How the facts demonstrate that counter to prevailing prejudice, 
governmental control of money has a far superior record than private 

This is a hands on do-able reality based program, not a theory, with 
many U.S. historical precedents, and more going as far back as Classical 
Greece and Rome.

The Money system acts like a fourth branch of government, generally 
affecting our daily lives more than the Executive, Judicial and 
Legislative branches combined. Yet it has been privatized and is largely 
outside the control of our democratic system of checks and balances 
where it has unfairly concentrated wealth to obscene levels.

The American Monetary Institute is America's leading think tank focusing 
on monetary history, theory and reform. Each September we hold a 3 day 
monetary reform conference at Roosevelt University, where cutting edge 
experts speak on those subjects. For more information:
