“As the clever hopes expire of a low dishonest decade;
waves of anger and fear circulate over the
bright and darkened lands of the earth,
out of the mirror they stare,
Imperialism’s face and the international wrong. “

W.H. Auden

 

Degrowth Conference
Tuesday   May 15th  2012

11 am Room K141 HEC Montreal “Public banking vs. Private banking”

 

Jerry Ackerman’s Intro Remarks:

“If you are tuned to the Monomedia, you are being led to understand
and become convinced that
this country, (and Your country)
is recovering from a largely accidental recession
and
that the financial institutions (national and global)
are
doing their very best –“pulling out all the stops”
to
right the situation ......and assist
in returning the world (yours and mine)
to
a  former / future  glory.

 

You (we) are being MISLED, MISINFORMED and LIED TO –
DELIBERATELY.

I’ll be specific:

1. This recession is a Depression.

2. No “recovery” is in prospect.

3. The financial institutions are not working on our behalf.

MY “learned, scholarly examination and analysis” (you will hear it as a RANT )

 

Will be followed by

 

My earnest colleague Victoria Grant
who will explain for those not yet aware
how money is created - on whose behalf ;
when Canada did it right
what went wrong
what are the consequences.

We will then entertain your questions and comments.

Welcome to everyone.
