This book allowed me to understand the system of money and money supply. I will be attempting to convince our small midwestern county to adopt a community supporting complimentary currency as a result of reading it.

Format: Paperback
If you haven't read this book yet, then you are behind the curve. There's a time and a place for everything, and the good things in life take some effort. This is one of those. Hard to find, easy to read, amazingly difficult to put into action, this book outlines a set of principles and futures that no American family should be without access to.

The American family may have a future that can't be bought without the knowledge in this book. Find out for yourself whether your own conception of 'value' will allow you to prosper in a new economy and world that is dawning RIGHT NOW.

It is now seriously out of date. It is far too long. The author makes his point and then repeats the points many times over with lots of examples. I believe the book would have been far more effective if it had been half the size
