An Evening With Jamie Walton - Positive Money Southampton
Jamie Walton will be our main presenter at Mettricks Guildhall on January 31st. We will start with a short introductory talk explaining Positive Money’s Basic ideas and principals before Jamie takes over.
Jamie Walton, AMI Researcher, a monetary reform genius, has worked with Dennis Kucinich and the American Monetary Institute (AMI) for many years. He worked with Ben Dyson when Positive Money was starting drafting documents and proposed law changes. The American Monetary Institute Is considered the US partner of Positive Money. Jamie is very knowledgeable and informative when it comes to monetary reform on both sides of the pond. likes to point out that the US Constitution states that the US shall have sovereign money. His background is in civil engineering. Engineers often understand monetary reform very well. The things they create have to work, and to last! Economists on the other hand ....
AMI’s Main aims are:
* Incorporation of the Federal Reserve into the U.S. Treasury;
* Changes in lending accounting rules so that banks no longer create any part of the money supply;
* New money needed in a developing society is introduced by government spending money into circulation on things like infrastructure, starting with the $2.2 trillion our engineers (ASCE) tell us is needed over the next 5 years. Also included will be the "human infrastructure" of education and health care. Jamie is an experienced civil engineer, and an AMI Researcher; he wrote the definitive expose showing why the proposal for states to go into the banking business is a distraction that reforms nothing, at this critical moment when reform is possible (see Ami homepage). For the past year, Jamie has worked in Washington in Congressman Kucinich's Office, helping with HR 2990, the monetary reform bill.
