Banking on the People: Democratizing Money in the Digital Age

Ellen Hodgson Brown

Kindle Edition available on Amazon

Today most of our money is created, not by governments, but by banks when they make loans. This book takes the reader step by step through the sausage factory of modern money creation, explores improvements made possible by advances in digital technology, and proposes upgrades that could transform our outmoded nineteenth century system into one that is democratic, sustainable, and serves the needs of the twenty-first century.

The Sport and Prey of Capitalists

Linda McQuaig


Although McQuaig is interested in more than just our disastrous history of privatization, the bulk of “The Sport and Prey of Capitalists” tells a different, little-known history of public enterprise in Canada.

She argues that more than ever, as we are challenged with climate change, income equality and privatization, we must expand, not contract, our provision of public services.
