Economics of War and Peace

(starts at 19 minutes) – Part 1 of this two-part series presented by Alanna Hartzok and Ellen Brown. Powerpoint and narrative built around Four Charts describing how the guns and violence of the war industry and US foreign policy builds from gross wealth and power inequality that in turn originates in the inequities and distortions of the land and money system. Debt and interest grow faster than the money supply; land and thus housing costs grow faster than wages (The Law of Rent); land enclosures; working people pay for the war system; oligarchs grab land and natural resources worldwide; wars and military interventions are a bipartisan affair; all wars are bankers AND resource wars; what to do about it by establishing a new form of democratic governance that solves the land and money problems.
