I'm a retired educator, businessman and amateur philosopher who has spent much of his spare time trying to figure out what is so wrong with our world. Why the dramatic separation between the rich and poor, haves and have-nots? Why the repeated wars? Why the poverty, hunger and starvation in so many places? Why are we alive now, in this time and place?

Being a prolific reader of non-fiction, I think I have found some answers, and hope to share some of the insights my life's journey has provided.

One maxim has proved most useful: Qui Bono? (Who benefits?) Put another way, much that is difficult to understand about our world is clarified by "following the money" and observing the channels in which it flows. Most especially useful is to perceive its source and understand what it really is, and isn't.

Your comments and feedback, positive or negative are appreciated.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR MONEY? What wrong with our economy? Why are we having a financial crisis? What is wrong with our money? This is the defining, yet widely suppressed, issue of our time.
