Every person should watch this and spread the word around! The mathematical flaw revealed is such a shocker and  has been right under our noses. No wonder the wealthiest 85 people own as much as the poorest 3.6.billion.

"Most people believe that interest is natural to money. However, the way in which money is created determines whether interest is applicable or not. For the last 600 years, the majority of humans have been unnecessarily paying interest to a wealthy few."

This is the synopsis of the YouTube video called 'The Simple Mathematical Flaw in Modern Economics', in case you can't view it or it's too long:

"There's a simple mathematical flaw in our economic systems that's at the root of our economic recessions, unstable economies, low income equality, poverty and inflation. This flaw is interest.

Humanity is conditioned to believe that money is a commodity that has to be borrowed at interest. But the natural and original form of money is interest-free and inflation-free. This form of money only bears a credit risk insurance premium, which is a small fee, and is already included in what banks charge us on our loans.

During the last 5000 years, humanity has gone back and forth between centuries of interest-free credit money and centuries of interest-bearing gold or silver-backed money. We only ever moved over to interest-bearing gold-backed money when we were forced to pay our taxes in gold or silver and when credit money was banned.

A move over the gold or silver-backed money always implied the introduction of interest to our economies, as those that were short of gold or silver to trade their goods and services with, had to rent it from the few that held the gold supply. Interest-bearing money also introduced inflation. Both inflation and interest would erode the wealth of the poor and middle classes. While inflation would also erode the wealth of the wealthy, the wealthy's newly found interest income would more than compensate. Interest would continually transfer money from the lower and middle classes to a wealthy minority. Until eventually, the unsustainable and unjust interest-bearing money system would collapse to give way to interest-free credit money.

Even though the gold standard ended in 1933 and we no longer back our money supply with gold, banks charge interest on the credit money issued to borrowers and pay the interest over to deposit holders, even though deposit holder's money is not effectively lent out. The seeming complexity of fractional reserve banking obscures the fact that banks no not effectively lend out deposit holder's money but issue borrowers with newly-created credit money.

Luckily it's again legal for people to create their own credit money systems. As long as we pay our taxes in our interest-bearing official currencies. The only significant interest-free credit money system in place in the world today is one in Switzerland which is used by 25% of all Swiss businesses. No wonder Switzerland has had one of the most stable economies in the world since a group of Swiss businesses created this interest-free credit money system in the 1930's to help themselves out of the Great Depression."

The Simple Mathematical Flaw in Modern Economics:

As much as Zeitgeist brings attention to the fact that our monetary systems are flawed and that these flaws are enslaving the majority, it does not get to the root of the problem with our money systems. Please watch this YouTube video created by a social enterprise and non-profit organisation that is spreading awareness of a simple flaw in our monetary systems. The flaw is so simple and the solution even simpler.  This flaw is continually transferring money from the majority to a wealth minority, is enslaving the middle class to debt and causing inflation. The solution - which is very obvious once you've watched the video - has been in place in Switzerland since the Great Depression in the 1930's and is currently used by over 25% of Swiss business. A comprehensive statistical analysis comprising 60 year's worth of data has shown that this solution has greatly contributed to the stability of the Swiss economy since the Great Depression.

Here's the link to the YouTube video:


The websites of the social enterprise and non-profit organisation that is spreading awareness of this flaw and the simple solution that people are implementing in their countries to bring about economic freedom:



Please help spread the word so people can start freeing themselves. Once you see the flaw you'll kick yourself as it's so simple. We've impoverished ourselves and each other to the benefit of a tiny few.

Nicolas, thanks for the tip.  Left in the Dark is an amazing book with a hypothesis that, IMO, will one day be considered mainstream knowledge.  It may take a few centuries but you cannot hold down "truth" forever.

Comment by Nicolas on February 10, 2012 at 11:07am

Supporters of the Zeitgeist movement have been fond of proclaiming that there is no "human nature". Depending on how one looks at it, I think that statement is a bit of a half-truth; Other than basic, primal instincts, that can be controlled at least partially with one's cultured personality, I'd say there might be a variety of "natures" one can bring out in people, on the phenotype level, that then remain more-or-less fixed. I recommend that everyone here check out the account of human nature that this thread is about, and that you all, once you've grokked the relevant data, consider supporting the research and its "message".
