Cause of the Financial Crisis

One of the things I learned today at the American Monetary Institute’s conference today:

“The financial crisis of 2007-8 occurred because we failed to constrain the private financial system’s creation of private credit and money.” – Dan Turner, 2012

Meaning, the inherent ability of banking corporations to create money out of thin air is what caused the crisis. We have to democratize money.
