Sitting On An Inventory Time Bomb"

This type of conclusion will be widely made. It is exactly what I was
writing about when I wrote "search for two terms in association by
using quotation marks: 'liquidity preference' + 'zero point.' "
What it means is people will do anything to get into a position of
positive liquidity and they will not borrow with terms of repayment
that include interest above zero.
Now, consider the phrase: "If you keep doing what you've been doing you will
continue to get the results you have been getting
." In that usage I
am not referring to individuals, but rather to government and to banks
in a collective fashion.
THE MODEL IS WRONG, AND THE ONLY SOLUTION IS TO
CHANGE THE MODEL.
We are using a mutual credit money system - this fact escapes nearly
everyone - but the banks are not formally in an agency position, the
face value of the money (seigniorage) is not assigned to the people,
and then interest is added to the money which is created through the
double entry process (hypothecated debt - the Mandrake Mechanism
When the banks were no longer required to exchange their notes of debt
for either gold or silver then all redemption of the money symbols fell
upon the people who redeemed the symbols with their commodities,
finished products, and intellectual and physical labor. When the debt
money came into existence through the Mandrake Mechanism (double entry
bookkeeping) - then if the books are ever to balance - the face value
of the notes must necessarily be assigned to all of the people
collectively or to producers of value individually.
Also, please recognize that the redemption process is all about
correcting the previously incorrect bookkeeping entries.
Also recognize that in these events natural law now will take precedent
over man's written law.
