The people's money

7 posts in this topic

(I posted this on another site last week but no-one was interested)

 

During the Vietnam conflict the US military issued their soldiers with "funny money" to stop them from purchasing local goods but giving them the ability to purchase US supplied goods through the "Stores" (US military stores).

These notes were basically monopoly money and they were worthless to local people. They could not be exchanged for local currency because the only things they could be used to buy was from the US supplies and stocks so the locals didn't really want them and they could not be used to purchase local items as they were valueless.

It was done to give the soldiers the ability to spend money/pay so they felt as if there was something to look forward to and you weren't worthless soldier getting killed in a far off land for no reward.

They were called MPC's
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_p...ertificate
and could be converted to US dollars but only once you had left the designated MPC zone.
In effect the US military was printing money that could be converted to "real" US dollars but only when one had left the area where they could be spent as currency.

This idea was not limited to the US military and is in use today in many places in the world.

When you run out of money this is what people do.

In the USA there was a money shortage due to the boat laden with currency sinking taking with it one third of the intended US money supply in 1857.

If you watch a bit of TV you would have seen the guys with the metal detectors who cruise the USA looking for old relics and finds from US history.

One of the things you see these people recover is tokens printed/issued by businesses to pay people in place of real US currency because of the loss of one third of the intended US money supply. These business often had other business like bakeries etc to service their workers and in some part recover the pay they had paid their workers (a classic scam of big business).

This still goes on today in some places in the world and like US MPC's they wouldn't necessarily be accepted outside of the area they were issued in.

In some places they are called "The People's Money."

My uncle was a buyer for NZ clothing retailers in the 90's. He thought himself a big businessman and was one of the first to go to china to get clothing manufactured. Him and his brothers owned a chain of clothing retailers who used mail order catalogues posted out to consumers who then placed their orders. It was big money. He could buy a T-shirt at $1NZD import them cheaply and often only paying $1 in customs fees per T-shirt to on sell them at $20 NZD.

He told us of the Chinese "people's money" they used to pay their people that could not be exchanged (not legally) for any legitimate currency buy could be used to purchase domestic goods within china (depending on where you lived as there were several people's moneys).

Because they didn't have a Rothschild Central bank controlling their money they could do this just as the USA did during the 1857 money scare. This way the Chinese could pay their people in worthless (worthless out of their country) money while still using their designated national money to purchase out of country goods. (in reality their only trading partners were other socialist nations who likewise didn't have Rothschild central banks, so N Korea and Russia. The other national trades had to be done in commodities)


Today this is the emerging situation in Greece that is going unreported in most International Media Agencies. Because they didn't have enough money to pay their people in (Rothschild central bank money) they have just started to use "People's Money" to do their day to day shopping at retailers who choose to accept this currency in exchange for goods and services.

This is why they know they don't have to play the game of the Big Banking organizations. Their international money could collapse completely and they all still get paid, purchase stuff, go to the movies and even get a root if required. THEY DON"T NEED THE ROTHSCHILD MONEY TO SURVIVE, and their money isn't being rented to them with interest rates attached. It has more purchasing power.


The International Media is refusing to report on this. Every nation could do it and return to trading internationally in commodities or services. Big Banking is crapping over it and they are using their Media instruments to muddy the waters and freak out Greeks and EU nations alike.

If international money collapse it would not affect your life even a bit as all nations would go back to printing and issuing "People's Money" So why pay the Banking Cartels a cent?
The quicker they fall the quicker we get back economic freedom.


People's Money isn't just in Greece, it is all around the world even in some places in the USA where towns agree to accept their own versions of People's Money which isn't taxable. In NZ where I reside there are several places where they have similar schemes of government tax avoidance for small scale services that are not economic while the NZ govt is trying to rob everyone via taxes. Mainly in isolated areas or on outlying islands.

We all have very good and sound alternatives to use if the world of Rothschild money collapsed. There is nothing to be afraid of and a lot to be happy about if it did.

Before central banking became the norm, that's exactly what everyone did. There are island tribes who used sea shells as a medium of exchange and even giant stone wheels. It's a matter of faith.  Having "free" money (free of interest) also frees the people.

Good post, thank you.

Yea, good to see you here, Guitar Doc! I've enjoyed your fine articles over the years, like the one exposing the United Fruit Co.

Good to see you YM,  and thanks Cinnamon for you kind comments.

 

I have been doing a bit of homework on psychology in the last couple of years YM, trying to understand what makes me tick, the good and bad sides. I have to do some write ups as it helps people understand others which I think reduces conflicts through understanding why we do what we do as people.

 

I have also read something recently call the Opal file which is connected to the Gemstone file. What I read in the opal file was true as I know it.  I will see if I can sum up the main points because other might make connections.

 

Good to be here, I like the feel and layout of the site. Lots of potential compared to other CT sites. Hopefully I can be a good contributor between doing my flesh world activities.

Interesting, just be careful of the wayward stuff you sometimes come across.  

Humans are quite complex, yet if we study the behavior patterns it becomes evident that we mostly react to situations in a pre subconsciously determined manner.  It is thus that psychology tend to place us into "categories".  In the main, people try to modify behaviour to suit the situation.

"We are who we are, because of what we think other people think we are!"

 Having a drink with buddies, jamming on a guitar in a music room - your behaviour is X

Playing that same guitar to impress the girlfriend's folks - your behaviour is Y

Enjoy the research!

"We are who we are, because of what we think other people think we are!"

This is also what the Romans believed....that identity is reliant upon others. Facebook anyone? Rome also gave us the census and the forum.....uncanny parallels. Indeed, psychology is a slippery slope.

It was to others that a Roman had to look for any confirmation of his ability and identity.
In Roman society confirmation by others was sought as well as required. Be they the elders of his family, his patron or his clients, army comrades, or even - in an election - the people of Rome; no Roman could be his own judge, but could see himself only through the eyes of others.

BTW, I am not THE yourmom.......I adopted his moniker out of respect to a poster that shared the same sense of humor as I and was sorely missed when he left, at least by me. I also have a tendency to call out "adults" that act like spoiled children so I really am a mom!

True, but whilst the Romans did this consciously as part of their "culture" it is inevitably part of our human core.  Even Elvis said "The world' a stage and each must play his part..." LOL
