Friday, July 22nd, 2011 Night of Clarity Speakers I Killed the Bank” and We Can Too!

Purchase Here

We face a true emergency.

More than ever before, average Americans are taking an interest in economic affairs, particularly the Federal Reserve’s massive bailouts and the federal government’s unprecedented deficits. For the first time the Federal Reserve is on the table as a matter of discussion.  Americans by the millions have become aware that the soundness of our money rests on nothing but the technical wizardry of Fed officials and the financial restraint of D.C. politicians.

The task before us is possible.

The United States has had central banks before the Federal Reserve, and they were allowed to die. This actually occurred during the administration of President Andrew Jackson. Furthermore, President Jackson paid off the entire National Debt! Two heroic accomplishments, which have never been duplicated, but prove that it can be done.   The student of history knows that unruly mobs, even when fueled by legitimate grievances, can often end up replacing one tyranny with an even worse monstrosity. That is why it is crucial for the public to be educated on sound money and banking theory. Today it is only the Austrian School of Economics that has been able to explain with complete accuracy the boom-bust cycle of the markets, their cause and effects. Ignoring the Austrians got us in this mess, heeding what they say can lead us out of it.

The long-term Austrian solution is to return money and banking to the competitive private sector, out of the grasp of politicians and bailed-out big bankers. The hosts and invited speakers of “A Night of Clarity” are devoted to exploring these economic relationships and providing the path toward Liberty.

Q&A with all Economists

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 The Mechanics of Privatized Banking: Embracing the Entire Solution Peaceful, Conservative and Reliable

Our foes are not invincible! The only way to restore sanity to our financial system is to return money and banking to the private sector, free from arbitrary political interference. The Sound Money Solution advocated by many Austrian economists first ties the dollar back to gold, then privatizes the institutions of money and banking, and finally eliminates the Federal Reserve itself. Although the forces supporting central banking are powerful, they are not invincible, as proven by Andrew Jackson’s victory over the Second Bank of the United States.

A simple approach! In the struggle for financial liberty, households have a powerful ally in Nelson Nash’s “Infinite Banking Concept,” which uses conventional, dividend-paying life insurance as a way to “secede” from our current banking system.   Nelson has shown that the proper use of dividend-paying whole life insurance could eventually allow someone to “become his own banker,” meaning that he could obtain his lifetime financing needs (for cars, children’s education, retirement income, and even house purchases) from policy loans and dividend payments, rather than from traditional banks or other lending institutions. This means that the bondage under the current debt-based system can finally be broken and Americans will not be nearly as vulnerable to the credit whipsaws unleashed by the Federal Reserve.

ibc-book5-175 IBC and Austrian Economics There are many fierce critics of whole life insurance on a purely financial level. This workshop will be dedicated to defusing all the common objections. It will also look under the hood of a traditional whole life policy to see and understand why it works like a bank. But, the overarching theme of this segment is to show the connection between IBC and the Sound Money Solution. Unlike other potential strategies of “starving the beast,” the practice of IBC makes sense at an individual household level, in addition to its social benefits of muting inflationary credit expansion.

Whether you are new to IBC or an expert practitioner, this seminar is exceptional in its in-depth explanations and supported by sound economic thinking in the Austrian School tradition.

Admission is $395.00.
