A fedearated Pound Striling and a Federated Euro Subsidiartity and complementary Currencies.

Roger Lewis MAR 19, 2017
The comments here are actually much more acute, than the article its self. The article is Ok and the comments curiously complete it. It is nice to see that this neo liberal propaganda sheet is not acting as an EU echo Chamber.
Karl Bilt says elsewhere on this site what is needed is more Europe and less Brussles, that is in short less Centralisation and exclusive commison competences and much, much, more Subsidiarity.
Curiously Gordon Brown this sites Executive editor, has gone on record regarding Scottish independence and the currency which the Newly independent scots would use. Mr Brown suggests a federated Bank of England with branches with money issuing and taxation raising powers in the devolved assemblies. A federated EURO and ECB seems like a workable ambition, with a complementary currency element along the lines of Bernard Leitaers Terra for the EURO in international trade and national and regional currencies within the individual EU states.
The problem with European politicians brought up in the neo liberal technocratic tradition is that they have no idea when it comes to monetary history, its a very large lacuna in the thinking of this generation of political leadership in the European institutions and in National executives.

The EU is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its founding treaty, the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Economic Community. There is indeed much to celebrate, and yet the Union is mired in a deep existential crisis, and appears…

Roger Lewis Mr Brown addressed the Festival of Ideas, in Kirkcaldy, Fife, where he called for the repatriation to Scotland of £800m spent by the EU.
'Not the time'
He also proposed that the Bank of England becomes the Bank of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern 
Ireland, with fully-staffed representation in Scotland, "to reinforce the fact that the pound is for everyone".
Mr Brown was the main architect of "The Vow", a promise of more powers for Holyrood, which many believe boosted the No vote ahead of the Scottish independence referendum in September 2014.

Roger Lewis7 April 2017 at 12:56 Syria is all about Gas, not poison Sarin Gas but Gas Pipelines. It is also not about Hydro Carbons in themselves but the market for hydrocarbons and which currency contracts of supply are settled in otherwise known  as,  US petrodollar hegemony.
Legitimate question. Does Jared Kushner have any interests in the Leviathan Gas field or any of the Israeli-backed Pipeline projects? #MAGA#Drain The Swamp. Starting to dig around will report back.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
