Where Does Money Come From? by Josh Ryan-Collins
Where Does Money Come From? by Josh Ryan-Collins
The main purpose of 'Where Does Money Come From' is to illustrate how the current system works. Obviously, money plays a critical role in all our lives. To understand the system we have to understand money - what it is, how it is created, by whom and for what purpose. As we were taught nothing about money at school (including economics students), very few of us know why we in our current situation, which can be very frustrating. This book explains the monetary ystem clearly. We have to understand what we are dealing with to improve it and we have to deal with money every day of our lives. A must read for anyone hoping we leave the world in a better condition than it is at present.

Unless you fully understand how money is simply created out of fresh air, by banks, then doled out to everyone else as debt, you do not understand the world you live in or you place within it. This book makes it all clear. If you're politician, an activist or a citizen, these are issues you need to understand.

This book is absolutely first class and a must read for anyone volunteering, or in any way working with volunteers.

It shows how the so called 'Voluntary Sector' was invented then used by successive governments to manipulate ordinary people's goodwill and public spirit to achieve their own policy agendas.

An indispensible tool to understanding how modern society in the UK functions. Congratulations to the author for a job well done.
