  • as a solution to Money As Debt directed by Paul Grignon quoting at 32:05 :
    • "If some people within this money supply begin systematically lending money at interest, their share of the money supply will grow. If they continually re loan at interests all the money that gets paid back, what's the inevitable result? Weather its gold, theater, dept money, doesn't matter, the money lenders will end up with all the money. And after the foreclosures and bankruptcies are all filled, they will get the real property too. '''Only if the processes of lending money at interests were evenly distributed amongst the population would the central problem be solved.'"
