Going From Mom-and-Pop Capitalism to Techno-Feudalism In a matter of decades, the United States has gone from a largely benign form of capitalism to a neo-feudal form that has created an ever-widening gap in wealth and power.

Tackling the Infrastructure and Unemployment Crises: The "American System" Solution The National Infrastructure Bank of 2020 can rebuild crumbling infrastructure across America, pushing up long-term growth, not only without driving up taxes or the federal debt, but without hyper-inflating the money supply or generating financial asset bubbles.

Why the Fed Needs Public Banks The Fed's policy tools -- interest rate manipulation, quantitative easing, and "Special Purpose Vehicles" -- have all failed to revive local economies suffering from government-mandated shutdowns. The Fed must rely on private banks to inject credit into Main Street, and private banks are currently unable or unwilling to do it. The tools the Fed actually needs are public banks, which could and would do the job.

From Lockdown to Police State: The "Great Reset" Rolls Out All this is such a radical curtailment of our civil liberties that we need to look closely at the evidence justifying it; and when we do, that evidence is weak.

When Profits and Politics Drive Science: The Hazards of Rushing a Vaccine at "Warp Speed" More than 100 companies are competing to be first in the race to get a COVID-19 vaccine to market. It's a race against time, not because the death rate is climbing but because it is falling - to the point where there could soon be too few subjects to prove the effectiveness of the drug.

Another Bank Bailout Under Cover of a Virus State and local governments with a mandate to serve the public interest deserve to be treated as well as private Wall Street banks that have repeatedly been found guilty of frauds on the public. How can states get parity with the banks? If Congress won't address that need, states can borrow interest-free at the Fed's discount window by forming their own publicly-owned banks.

Crushing the States, Saving the Banks Banks can now borrow effectively for free, without restrictions on the money's use. Following the playbook of the 2008-09 bailout, they can make the funds available to their Wall Street cronies to buy up distressed Main Street assets at fire sale prices, while continuing to lend to credit cardholders at 21%.

A Universal Basic Income is Essential and Will Work A government-mandated shutdown has left households more vulnerable than at any time since the Great Depression, a UBI seems the most direct and efficient way to get money to everyone who needs it. But critics argue that it will just trigger inflation and collapse the dollar.

Was the Fed Just Nationalized? Wall Street and the stock market were driven onto life-support by a virus. It took only a few days for Congress to unanimously pass the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which will be doling out $2.2 trillion in crisis relief, most of it going to Corporate America with few strings attached.

Socialism at Its Finest after Fed's Bazooka Fails In what is being called the worst financial crisis since 1929, the US stock market has lost a third of its value in the space of a month, wiping out all of its gains of the last three years. When the Federal Reserve tried to ride to the rescue, it only succeeded in making matters worse.

The Fed's Baffling Response to the Coronavirus Explained In an attempt to contain the damage, the Federal Reserve on March 3 slashed the fed funds rate from 1.5% to 1.0%, in its first emergency rate move and biggest one-time cut since the 2008 financial crisis. But rather than reassuring investors, the move fueled another panic sell-off.

Is the Run on the Dollar Due to Panic or Greed? The whole repo rigmarole underscores the sleight of hand on which our money and banking systems are built, and why it is time to change them. The banks could not function without public support. They should be turned into public utilities, mandate interests of the people and the productive economy on which the public depends.

Central Bankers' Desperate Grab for Power Central banks actually serve some useful functions. Better would be to nationalize the Fed, turning it into a true public utility, mandated to serve the interests of the economy and the voting public. It's our money, and we should be able to decide where it goes.

The Cheapest Way to Save the Planet Grows Like a Weed Hemp can help save our shrinking forests by eliminating the need to clear-cut them for paper pulp. One acre planted in hemp produces as much pulp as 4.1 acres of trees, according to the USDA; and unlike trees, hemp can be harvested two or three times a year. Hemp paper is also finer, stronger and lasts longer than wood-based paper. Benjamin Franklin's paper mill used hemp.

The public banking revolution is upon us State infrastructure needs are huge, and the existing funding options -- raising taxes, cutting services and increasing debt levels -- have been exhausted. Newly-created credit directed into local communities by publicly-owned banks can provide the additional funding that local governments critically need.
