How did the Banks Break our Money System Again?
Why doesn’t it work for America?

Learn more about money in 3 hours than most economists learn (or will tell) in a lifetime!

The Seminar will Discuss:

* America's Monetary Power has been usurped and privatized, leading to collapse and ultimately unemployment and warfare!

* How and why the money power must be restored to society where it can be used to promote the general welfare, instead of corrupt private agendas.

* How the money power became privatized, and is kept in place by false theory.

* A three step program that restores it to society.

* Why we should nationalize the Money System (the Federal reserve) NOT the banking system. (banking isn't a proper function of government, but the money supply is a government prerogative)

* Why inflation need not be a problem.

* How the facts demonstrate that counter to prevailing prejudice, governmental control of money has a far superior record than private control.

* Why it is crucial that the power to create any part of our money supply be completely removed from banks, for any reform to work.

This is a hands on do-able reality based program, not a theory, with many U.S. historical precedents, and more going as far back as Classical Greece and Rome.

The Money system acts like a fourth branch of government, generally affecting our daily lives more than the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches combined. Yet it has been privatized and is largely outside the control of our democratic system of checks and balances where it has unfairly concentrated wealth to obscene levels among other injustices.

The American Monetary Institute is America’s leading think tank focusing on monetary history, theory and reform. Each September we hold a 3 day monetary reform conference at Roosevelt University, where cutting edge experts speak on those subjects. Each quarter the Institute offers this free introductory seminar.

This seminar is designed for people who’d like a good background on how our money system works, why its not working well, how to fix it, and what benefits would follow in terms of infrastructure and health care and education; and how our society has the power to begin creating a superior future world, instead of getting mired in stupidity and warfare.

About Stephen Zarlenga- author of The Lost Science of Money- The Mythology of Money- The History of Power, founder of the American Monetary Institute-

Stephen Zarlenga draws on 35 years of experience in the world of finance, securities, insurance, mutual funds, real estate, and futures trading. He has published 20 books on money, banking, politics and philosophy (including The Anglo American Establishment, by Prof. Carrol Quigley). While in his mid 20s he incorporated the Athenian branch of an English life insurance company, earlier opening several European markets for the parent firm, IOS.

A few years later he built the U.S. distribution network of the then leading American mutual fund concentrating in gold shares. As a member of the New York Futures Exchange (a subsidiary of the New York Stock Exchange) he specialized in trading the complex CRB futures index for several years. Thus the author is more than familiar with both the practical and theoretical sides of our market economy.
Yet he calls into question and challenges the basis, and Achilles’ heel, of American Capitalism: the private control and resulting misdirection of the nation’s monetary system.

Stephen Zarlenga holds a degree in Psychology from the University of Chicago (and has done postgraduate work at NYU), where he was in the final graduating class under the revered Hutchins’ curriculum which focused on critical reading and thought. This training, combined with his work experience, and years of research, enabled him to re-formulate the Lost Science of Money.

The author began focused research on the money problem in 1991, eventually drawing on over 800 monetary source books and materials to formulate this thesis. In 1996, he helped establish the American Monetary Institute to further the research. In 1999, Conzett Verlag of Zurich, Switzerland translated and published the work in German. This expanded English version released in 2002, establishes the author as a leading voice in the field of monetary history, theory and reform.
