Farming is harder than foraging.

Farming is harder than foraging.

KMO talks with Chad Hill of the HipcrimeVocab blog about the origins of inequality. Chad thinks it all started with debt. Chad explains how the meaning of the term "Luddite" has changed since it was coined. KMO goes on a long rant about human brains don't seem to be up to the challenge of Facebook, and KMO and Chad exchange notes on the task of trying to write a book.

KMO welcomes Nathan A. Martin to the program to discuss the problems with debt-based money. Nate has a proposed solution in the form of Freedom's Vision and the accompanying methodology of SwarmUSA. According to Nate, we have reached the point at which further infusions of debt-based money into the economy have a negative effect on GDP and that if we fail to take back the power to control the creation of new money from private bankers and introduce a sustainable money methodology that we are in for what he calls a "Nation Changing Event" which dwarfs economic crises of the past.

162: IOU

Play

KMO reads a passage from Life, Inc about the feedbacks between the real economy and the speculative economy before playing a conversation with Web of Debt author Ellen H. Brown about the refusal of Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and JPMorgan Chase (which each got $25 billion in bailout money from the taxpayers) and Bank of America (which received $15 billion) to accept IOUs from the state of California to help overcome its budget shortfall. The discussion touches on the performance to date and possible motives of US President Barak Obama.
