"Building True Wealth" with Catherine Austin Fitts (excerpt)
Visionary: Catherine Austin Fitts
IONS Editorial Director Matthew Gilbert and radical financial guru Catherine Austin Fitts engage in a thought-provoking conversation based on the analogy of big business as a "tapeworm." Catherine argues that If we want clean water, fresh food, sustainable infrastructure, sound banks, lawful companies, and healthy communities, we are going to have to finance and govern these resources ourselves. We cannot invest in the stocks and bonds of large corporations and governments that are harming our food, water, environment and all living things and then expect these resources to be available when we need them. Nor can we do business with the banks that are bankrupting our government and economy. Stressing the need for increased self sufficiency and the elimination of personal debt, Catherine offers practical advice for disengaging from the tapework economy and surviving a possible economic collapse or a slow deterioration of the dominant capitalist model.
