The Trillion Dollar Coin: A Debt Solution for the People
Far from being a gimmick, having the U.S.
Treasury mint high-denomination coins is a solution that cuts to the
root of America’s financial problems. And Benjamin Franklin would have
liked it, too.
We have a chance today to end the charade of big money gridlock
politics, as well as the reign of the big banks. But the current
government is so thoroughly captured by the bank-created money of our
time that it is unlikely to take action without pressure from the
people. Our ignorance on these issues has played into the hands of the 1
percent, who are dependent on the current system for their wealth and
power. However, the massive push from educational campaigns such as
those organized by Occupy Wall Street, Strike Debt, and the Free University is starting to lift the veil from our eyes. - Ellen Brown, Common Dreams
