Beyond Banksters: Resisting the New Feudalism

By Joyce Nelson 

Beyond Banksters is the ultimate handbook on the state of politics and economics in Canada and around the world. It is a stunning wakeup call to the need to change course.
    In the chapter “COMER and the National Memory,” Nelson, outlines the history of the Bank of Canada, validating COMER’s message and explaining the COMER lawsuit. In a well-researched, clear and concise account, she builds a compelling case – on  insightful analysis and salient information – for the urgent need for banking and monetary reform. She outlines the rampant privatization promoted by the globalized economy and identifies the key players behind the drive to the “new feudalism.”
   Not just a catalogue of doom, the book supports the conclusion that, “as the COMER folks, the proponents of public banking, and others, keep reminding us, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Money: A Servant for all mankind
The Canadian Experience

Compiled by Bill Abram

Bill Abram’s account of Canada’s experience with its public bank – the Bank of Canada – is uniquely descriptive and insightful. The details of the Bank’s history, its mission, and its magnificent accomplishments on behalf of every Canadian are explained accurately.
    Abram turns to forensic accounting expert Jack Biddell to demonstrate what took place from 1940 to 1970: full employment, development and growth – without causing inflation, and without creating debt.
   He lists the major accomplishments that vastly improved the life of every Canadian, then examines and questions the retrograde government actions of 1974 and since: borrowing from private domestic and foreign banks at interest, running deficits, thus accumulating the national debt as though no alternative were available.

Meltdown: Money, Debt and the Wealth of Nations, Volume 2 (1999–01)

To put the economies of the world under the complete control of the financial sector...brought on the Depression of the thirties that led to the Second World War... The inescapable one way out from a Third World War, which appears more inescapably in the offing, is to prevent our governments from persisting in the dumbing-down process of our society.

Meltdown: Money, Debt and the Wealth of Nations, Volume 3 (2002–03)

The theme here is the headlong Wall Street encounter of the mathematics of the atomic bomb translated into big business format. Big Trouble. Our governments have not even come close to finding their way out of this major catastrophe. To do so would require that they dig up the teaching of some of our greatest economists, who they have so assiduously buried. It is the purpose of Meltdown and COMER to lend them a helping hand in this ever more urgent task. $20 [+ shipping] More

Meltdown: Money, Debt and the Wealth of Nations, Volume 4 (Janary 2004–June 2005)

“In the present volume we deal quite fully with the importance of human capital, once recognized but subsequently deliberately buried to allow our deregulated banks to continue their irresponsible escapade that threatens the survival of our civilization.… The major lesson of that is that education changes the very nature of the human race. The realities brushed upon by the Greek and Renaissance philosophers that redefined what man saw and measured and, hence, what man was and could be, has recreated him in command of the outer spaces. At the very time that more earthbound specimens are finding it tougher keeping even an automobile firm non-bankrupt and adequately fueled, others are learning to re-assess such problems in outer space with a lavish saving in time and fuel.” $20 [+ shipping] More

Meltdown: Money, Debt and the Wealth of Nations, Volume 5 (July 2005–December 2006)

“Our government is financed largely by borrowing in the market-place, and relying on taxation and shifting the burden of increasing amounts of services onto the provinces that pass a growing amount of the burden onto the provinces and municipalities, whereas that could be done directly or indirectly through the central bank at a nominal cost. This was actually done to finance Canada’s part in World War II, and then to catch up with many years of neglect during the Depression and World War II. It made possible for Canada not only to catch up with the neglect but to receive millions of mostly penniless refugees from Europe. We need only return to the most prosperous years of our history and make use of legislation that, unused, is still on our law books.”

Non-Autistic Economy

Towards a Non-Autistic Economy — A Place at the Table for Society

Marginal Utility theory “confuses scarcity with wealth,” according to Krehm. “It validates the speculative increase of demand on the stock market as the most prolific multiplier of ‘value’. That makes it obligatory to rethink economic theory from the bottom up.” $20  [+ shipping] More

Bank of Canada

A Power Unto Itself: The Bank of Canada

Here, Mr. Krehm highlights Canadian financial solutions that are easily within our grasp, showing:

  • How the Bank, under a previous governor, financed Canada's war effort in imaginative and virtually risk-free ways, encouraging sustained postwar prosperity.
  • How these proven remedies would combat our mounting deficits and crushing unemployment rates.
  • How the Bank could assist provincial governments in acheiving economic renewal.

Babel's Tower

Babel’s Tower

In Tower Krehm develops a relativistic view of all economic theory. This is necessary, so as to establish the quite different logics that govern the subsystems that make up our pluralistic economy.

Babel's Tower abounds with new concepts and tools that are indispensible for understanding and managing our mixed economy – structural quasi-rents, inter-sectorial transforms, modulus congruence calculus. The book is accessible to the intelligent layman. $10  [+ shipping] More

Price in a Mixed Economy: Our Record of Disaster

Our society has become a pluralistic one – with non-market forces feeding elements of price rise into the economy; our economic theory, however, has remained a monistic one that sees price determined by the self-equilibrating interplay of supply and demand.

Price in a Mixed Economy formulates a grammar of economic feasibility that sets out the real choices open to society. $15  [+ shipping] More

How To Make Money In A Mismanaged Economy And Other Essays

From the preface: This is not meant to be a How to do it yourself book. It will be perfectly possible for readers to work their way through it, and not go on to make a million dollars. My original intent in developing the ideas contained in it was not to derive investment strategies – though they have served me well towards that end. My goal was rather to understand the novel patterns thrown up by our changing economy.
