Fed Rate Rise 12 Trillion Fiscal Cliff , UK Commons 1.7 Trillion Stirling Debt , Money Myths Ignorant MP´s


“The UK has one of the worst performing currencies in the world, it has a trade deficit of £133 billion, and a national debt approaching £1.7 trillion.
Can I ask the Prime Minister, does she really believe the UK can afford to be an independent country?”

Roger Lewis It is a very good question but I wonder if the questioner and whether PM May know why it is such a good question. I suspect that PM May does.

In an economy with debt based money if Government debt does not increase at a time that private borrowing is on the wane the money supply shrinks which exacerbates economic contraction. The level of the Government debt is therefore related to the Money supply.

The level of debt is also related to the Bail-outs of 2008 which resulted from Banks lending wildly and going bust. This, in turn, led to the so-called sovereign debt crisis.The EU and the ECB has also struggled with this problem but the crisis has affected the so-called PIIGS massively as Constitutional Austerity force a sovereign debt crisis on the PIGS where the pigs were at the mercy of private banks or the ´´Markets´´in which to raise debt instead of resorting to the ECB as lender of last resort a role the ECB is prohibited from fulfilling under the EU treaties ( I have the ref but can not remember it off top of my head)

For the SNP a key question should they get a yes vote to secede from the Union the currency question is key, would Scotland have its own new central bank and national currency, would it try to join the EURO, (probably impossible to meet the requirements)
would it remain in a Stirling partnership?

Most MP´s are ignorant of the money creation process according to this Positive money survey.


The performance of a currency is an interesting concept, what did the questioner mean? exchange rate comparisons, money supply and effectiveness as a means of exchange, Unit of account?
On the question of the National Debt, this is like austerity a political choice one small amendment to the bank charter act of 1846 would put that right, although the city of London would be very upset.Some say it is the City of London who lobbied hardest for Brexit, and that pass-porting is the main focus of the Tories on any EU deal post-Brexit. Time will tell.



Here are links to my Articles on Brexit and its monetary dimension.




I am taking a break from the very serious business of collecting together my final thoughts of the Post-Globalist Paradigm shift as seen through the De Globalisation Lens of Putin’s Russia, Farage’s UK and Donald Trumps United States of America. With also a sympathetic glimpse beneath the petticoats of Elysium and her, States of Undress, in Europe. Treat her mean and keep her keen, say the 3 brexiteers and off with her corsets and stick it to her, Others look sheepishly and advocate for sympathy sex, others again long for Make up sex, with restored vigour.

My own intentions in this reconnoiter over the past 15 months Brexit scribblings are not of course purely altruistic. My Novel ´The Conquest of Dough has been waiting for the Full Stop of the Trump presidency, the inauguration was a key event the other will be the debt ceiling scheduled some time in June? when the 20 Trillion dollar of debt mark is hit and that silly old charade of the ´´Fiscal Cliff++ will undoubtedly be played again, to my own yawns and the Corporate Medials squeals of indignation no doubt.

Le Pens designs on La Belle Francais and Mr Wilders intrigue with the Electorate of the Netherlands are of course all set to provide some more drama in the Affairs of our Lovely Elysium. But the page of history has already turned and the Paradigm

The Dawkins video on Channel 4 sums up the lack of thought still being applied to these questions. This is about De Globalisation or Post Globalisation. Globalisation has failed and so has the neo liberal EU. I have been reading this this morning.


see article 28 regarding the ESCB and ECB and its sole responsibility for stable prices. One EURO one Vote, that is not democracy. Similalry one Pound Stirling one vote is no more democracy than 10e Euro one vote. I do wish people could seperate out the seperate questions regarding how best to pursue democracy. Neiter the EU or Westmionster are democratic. Heres a whole book about the general malaise from the 1930´s By HG Wells just as a starter for ten.

I support Scottish Independence but I also support monetary independence for all the Nations in the European Union, a Complementary Federalised complementary domestic currency system and one currency for international trade outside of the EFTA area makes most sense, Bernard Lietaer is the most approachable source on these concepts he features in this dialogue I have has with Clive Lord a founding member of the Peoples Party ( proto-Green Party of England and Wales.

Roger Lewis Edward Griffins book is a different stroy to the one Still is telling. Jeckyll Island is about the founding of the Fed and This film is the history leading up to the fed. As far as I know Stills film is not based o0n nGriffins Book.
Joseph Cooper
Joseph Cooper The “facts” of the setting up of the Fed are the only important things in my opinion Roger. Some of the characters who weave “narratives” around the facts are counter productive. Whether they wear purple tracksuits or believe they know the location of Noah’s Ark. These characters only muddy the waters.
Roger Lewis
Roger Lewis Still gives the chronological history his is not what I would call a political narrative but a straight factual one. Griffin is interesting as well, I think he is a little more political than Still but again the facts are pretty straight forward if little known today. The Wikipedia Article is quite good too.
