A Participatory, Dynamic, Community Building Seminar to address the problems with our money system and proposed solutions. 

Solutions include Mutual Credit and Sociocracy, Public Banks, Interdependence Funds, and eventually restructuring the Federal Reserve System.

Do you know who issues the dollars we all have to use? Do you know what they are issued for? Do you know when they are issued? Do you know who regulates the money supply and for what purpose? Do you know why the Federal Debt never gets paid off? Do you know why the system requires continual growth and why we deplete our natural resources at such an alarming rate? Do you know why you don’t know the answers to these questions? Do you know why even most bankers do not know the answers to these questions? 

The culture would have us believe that our problems are a result of human nature. However, by highlighting your life experiences, we can demonstrate that the problems we face arise from the distortion of human nature brought about by the way money is issued and mis-allocated. If we issue money to capitalize what we value and want to dedicate our lives to, then the economy and society will reflect our values and capitalize our capacities.  

Come join us for a genuine community building experience as we explore the work that a small, dedicated group has developed over the past four years. We will learn together about Concordian Economics and how to issue money to create communities dedicated to the common good.

We will gather on Friday Evening March 18th from 7 to 10 pm, and all day Saturday March 19, from 10 am to 5 pm at Bocca Bella Cafe, (442 Lexington Street, Newton (Auburndale), MA 02466), which will make available a vegetarian buffet: $20 dinner from 7 to 8 pm on 3/18, and $15 lunch from 12 to 1 pm on 3/19. 

Requested donation for Credit To The People: $25.
