"I have worked for a long time looking into monetary reform and after 10 years, finally someone has produced a DVD entitled "Money as Debt". It is a fabulous fun yet powerful introduction to the issue of monetary reform. It's the best over view I have seen so far; the best by far. ESSENTIAL! Everyone should watch it!
The topic of DebtMoney is THE issue of our times. It forms the basis to every nation's areas of core material and spiritual concerns such as economic development, employment and environmental sustainability.
If only government officials, civil society organizations, environmental groups, unions and well meaning international development strategists trying to eradicate poverty really understood this topic... the world would be a much better place.
"Everyone should see this movie." David Korten, lecturer & author of When Corporations Rule the World, The Great Turning from Empire to Earth Community
Susan Boskey The Quality of Life Plan:
"In 47 minutes, Paul Grignon, writer, artist and animator of the movie Money as Debt , tells the whole story about how money works. Believe me, this is a huge accomplishment. For as long as I've studied this topic (going on 26 years), I found it difficult to find any one author who could break down the facts for a lay person such as myself. I had to research lots of different sources – pieces of the puzzle - to get the whole picture and that took years. In my opinion, Money as Debt will continue to be wildly successful because it communicates an exceedingly complex subject in simple terms for everyday people. What's more, Paul Grignon uses humor to lubricate the parts of our brains needed to learn new concepts. The pure enjoyment factor of good animation illuminates this typically confounding topic making it accessible and much easier to comprehend."
