What is Money For?

4,741 words

We will never see an end of ructions, we will never have a sane and steady administration until we gain an absolutely clear conception of money. I mean an absolutely not an approximately clear conception.

I can, if you like, go back to paper money issued in China in or about A.D. 840, but we are concerned with the vagaries of the Western World. Read more …

On Usury

5,284 words

Usury does not mean high interest. It means any interest, however low, demanded for an unproductive loan. It is not only immoral but it is ultimately destructive of society. It has only been the rule of our commerce to take usury since the breakup of Europe following on the Reformation. Usury will destroy our society, but meanwhile there is no escape from it.

4,413 words

Editor’s Note:

A. R. D. Fairburn was born on February 2, 1904. In commemoration, we are reprinting his magnificent poem “Dominion,” a panorama of the British Empire and his native New Zealand in the trammels of international finance capitalism. Fairburn was a follower of Nietzsche and Spengler and an advocate of Social Credit, the most common intellectual ingredients in the outlook of Anglophone fascists in the 1920s and ’30s.

Editor’s Note:

The following is the text of Ezra Pound’s Radio Rome broadcast of March 15, 1942. Pound began writing radio broadcasts in the fall of 1940. His first scripts were read by professional announcers. In January of 1941, he began to record his own scripts. Generally, he did two broadcasts per week, and he would pre-record them in batches of 10 to 20. The broadcasts ended in July, 1943 with the fall of the Mussolini government.

Ezra Pound on Money

Ezra Pound's May 26, 1945 mug shot

2,356 words

We’re never far from money. We spend most of our time and energy in quest of money.

But how did this thing become an intermediary between us and the world around us? Before money, we bartered. Why did money supplant barter and who is custodian of the money system?

These questions are dangerous: they cost Ezra Pound twelve years. Pound was a victim of political persecution at the behest of financiers and their minions like Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Read more …
