Businesses Getting Ready For Collapse Of The Euro

OK, while the documentary ‘the secret’ has some value, positive thinking alone will get you in a bit of trouble right now. I prefer – expect the best, but prepare for the worst and take massive action, don’t try and rely on the universe fixing everything for you right now. Just in case you have…

George Osborne Has Got Some Money For Small Business

Just got back from presenting at a European Banking Reform Conference in Prague and woke up to some interesting headlines… In my YouTube video ‘The Great Depression of 2013‘, I said that following the forecasted credit rating downgrades and further quantitative easing comes change in regulations to patch up the broken ponzi scheme we call…

Future Vision Of Banking

You are crazy, a liar and a scammer

When I told the world years ago that banking was unsustainable and due a collapse because of banks ability to create money, I was often called a conspiracy theorist. When I told economists that their theories are built upon a misunderstanding of money, I was outcasted by academics. When I told students that most will…

Can Hackers Really Delete the NYSE

Last week I wrote a blog during the Occupy Wall Street campaign about a YouTube video posted on a channel called TheAnnonMessage in which a computer-generated voice tells viewers that “on October 10, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet” in an operation dubbed ‘Invade Wall Street’.

Alternative Banking

Could A Non-Banking System Shake Up Banking

The way I see it, there are three ways to get Banking Reform to happen faster, before the inevitable crash:

1. Education (This is why I make banking reform an integral part of my training company, Benedix, that is the world largest training company for students seeking careers in banking). We need a next generation of Bankers aware of what they are doing.

2. Politics (This is why I support Positive Money) The change we need in Banking can only be done at the government level. They are the ones that need to decide who has the ability to create money.

3. Business (This is why I founded BankToTheFuture.com) We need an alternative to Banking and I have been busy getting ready to launch a place where people can lend, loan, invest, raise funds and network bypassing the traditional banking system.

Having signed the contract with my publisher to write my latest book on the future of banking and the launch of my alternative non-bank ‘BankToTheFuture.com‘  around the corner, I have been on a bit of meeting frenzy.

So after all this talk about Facebook and Google becoming banks, I got inspired to call a meeting with Thomas Power himself and a team of experts…
