97% Owned - How is money created. Positive Money Cut
97% owned present serious research and verifiable evidence on our economic and financial system. This is the first documentary to tackle this issue from a UK-perspective and explains the inner workings of Central Banks and the Money creation process.
When money drives almost all activity on the planet, it's essential that we understand it. Yet simple questions often get overlooked, questions like; where does money come from? Who creates it? Who decides how it gets used? And what does this mean for the millions of ordinary people who suffer when the monetary, and financial system, breaks down?
Without cash, we would live in a much more secure environment. There would be less violent and more social cohesion, since the main attractive for illegal activities would disappear. The telematic implies great hope for all the population on de planet as long as it is used as an instrument dedicated to preserve the liberty and information of all citizens.
45 Years Ago Today Richard Nixon Killed The Gold Standard - 08/15/1971
45 years ago today, on 08/15/1971, under pressure from the FEDERAL RESERVE, Nixon suspended the convertibility of the US dollar into gold.
The Federal Reserve demanded this action TO PROTECT THE US DOLLAR FROM SPECULATORS.
The value of the US dollar has been steadily falling ever since.
Today our currency has a lower value than the Canadian dollar, or the Euro.
Denise Schmandt-Besserat, suggest the hypothesis that these simple clay figurines represent the first currency in history. That that currency is a «note», a «bookkeeping entry», and that this opens the way to writing.
Before the Sumerian writing system—the first script ever developed—was invented at the end of the fourth millennium B.C., accounting was practiced in the ancient Middle East by means of small counters. These were small tokens modeled in clay in different shapes, each symbolizing a particular commodity. The token system consisted of two kinds of tokens—«plain» and «complex».
The tokens from Tepe Asiab may be considered an elaboration of a system of counting based on pebbles. The novelty was to use clay for the manufacture of the counters, permitting one to model the tokens into various shapes and to assign each form a particular meaning. Thus, the counters became a more precise memory aid since they not only conferred the quantity but also the specific nature of the commodities recorded.
Tokens are small clay artifacts modeled in various shapes, mostly geometric. In previous publications, I wrote that tokens were used for recording prior to writing in the ancient Middle East. I suggested that each token shape stood for a precise quantity of a particular good such as "a peck of barley" or "a jar of oil". In this paper, I focus on the earliest assemblages of tokens and present the available data concerning where, when, and how the first tokens appear. Finally I identity factor(s) which may have been responsible for the emergence of recording.
