IT’S OUR MONEY with Ellen Brown

System Failure

When trains derail and bridges fall, oil pipelines burst, water dries up and people live without homes, one might reasonably conclude that the fundamentals of civic systems are not being met. But these chronic occurrences are also signs of a different type of systemic failure – a failure of public and spiritual priorities caused by the dominant paradigm of profits over people. This week Ellen speaks with the distinguished philosopher, ethicist and author John B. Cobb about how system failure is inevitable if priorities are corrupt. And co-host Walt McRee talks with Joe Guinan about the launching of a new collaborative effort to create Next Systems to replace the failing performance of money-centric ones. Finally, Public Banking Reporter Matt Stannard reflects on his world as a happy, but troubled, Amtrak traveler.

Co-hosted by noted public banking author Ellen Brown and PBI’s chair and media guru Walt McRee, each episode of “It’s Our Money” offers new perspectives, deeper information, and articulate interviews with thought leaders and activists fighting for a democratic and just economy. Join Walt and Ellen, with reports by economic justice advocate Matt Stannard, and guests who connect the dots on public banking, the restoration of the commons, global finance, and more. A Public Banking Institute Presentation.
