Special Programming: Public Affairs on 12/24/12
More Talk Radio is off today. Instead we will hear a special program featuring a talk by Ellen Hodgson Brown, founder of the Public Banking Institute and author of The Web of Debt. Ellen Brown spoke on "The Public Option in Banking" an event sponsored by Portland Fellowship of Reconciliation and the First Unitarian Church of Portland's Economic Justice and Peace Action Groups at the First Unitarian Church on October 25th.
This program was produced by KBOO volunteer Mel Reslor.
Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and "the money trust." She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back. Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua.
