People and Organizations

While the basics are straightforward and appeal greatly to common sense, we rely upon experts who continue to build a body of knowledge and lead us through the decades-in-the-making thicket of misinformation and disinformation that can inhibit our understanding of how the money systems of sovereign governments actually work. Fortunately we have them, and a growing compilation of links to their writing and presentations for their colleagues, their students and for the general public. Below are links to our primary trusted sources: leading academics; their think tanks, programs; and networks.
