Nine states suffer Californian fiscal disease  – Financial Times 11/11/09

Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin join California as the most troubled US states, the Pew Center says.

For residents, fiscal problems have meant higher taxes, layoffs of state workers, longer waits for public services, more crowded classrooms and less support for the poor. They also may hurt the national economy, since the 10 states account for more than a third of the US population and economic output, the report says. Tax increases and spending cuts, the main ways of balancing state budgets after sharp declines in tax revenue, can slow the overall recovery.

Each of these United States will declare bankruptcy within the next few years.  It’s the only logical result, when you actually examine the design of the system.

Understanding how nations create money and how the US can reclaim $1 trillion/year from banksters  – Examiner 11/7/09

Below is a concise and lucid explanation of how nations create money by economist John Hotson. This topic is at the heart of our economic problems, and required understanding for competent citizenry.

I’m among many writers who document that Americans are transferring unprecedented amounts of their hard-earned money to the oligarchy controlling our banks and casino-capitalism “investment” institutions. The solution is structurally simple for the public benefit of conservatively $1 trillion every year, and has been advocated by many of America’s sharpest historical minds. States can take control of their financial problems through state-owned banks; ending interest payments on their debt and earning profit by providing 2% mortgages for the good of the public.

A History of Money and Banking Secrets That Banks Don’t Want Published  – Bush Stole 04 11/10/09

To start with a history of money and debt, we must go back many years ago when people used to trade their wares for the things they wanted and needed.  In place of money or Federal Reserve Notes, you could trade a well made pistol for a cow, which you could eat or trade a remainder of for other items like clothing.  It didn’t take long for people to realize there needed to be a more efficient means of trade. If you were a farmer, it was too difficult to carry baskets of fresh corn around to trade for a new horse. And, the person selling the horse might not want any corn at all.
