The Secret of Oz
by Bill Still

What's going on with the world's economy? Foreclosures are everywhere, unemployment is skyrocketing -- and this may only be the beginning. Could it be that solutions to the world's economic problems could have been embedded in the most beloved children's story of all time, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"? The yellow brick road (gold), the emerald city of Oz (greenbacks), even Dorothy's silver slippers (silver), changed to ruby for the movie version, were powerful symbols of author L. Frank Baum's belief that the people -- not the big banks -- should control the quantity of a nation's money. The symbols are well known, their meaning is not, yet they hold the key to solving our economic crisis. The familiarity of the Oz symbols to the public makes their explanation a potentially powerful weapon against our modern witches and wizards. The bottom line: No More National Debt. All our money is created out of debt. But nations don't have to borrow money from banks. Sovereign nations can create their own money -- debt free -- just as Abraham Lincoln did.
