The "Debt" book author is coming on Book TV today.
Edited on Sun Sep-04-11 09:09 AM by sfpcjock
He was on Thom Hartmann show friday (Big Picture RT) "Great Minds" interview and proposed a "jubilee" debt forgiveness. Apparently, this has been a regular historical occurrence. He shows how credit preceeded money as the way that people paid their bills.

Debt: The First 5,000 Years by David Graeber (Hardcover - Jul 12, 2011)



He also said that if we had bailed out all the bad and deceptive trick mortgages it would have been equivalent to bailing out the banks with boatloads of funny money the way we did. He is coming on Book TV today.

Here he is on Democracy Now!
