    It is time to be worried when mainstream commentators like Thom Hartmann and highly respected economists like Ellen Brown tell us that we are on track to experience an economic crisis that will make the Great Depression look like a mild hiccup.  Brown, the author of Web of Debt and The Public Bank Solution and founder of the Public Banking Institute, has even written about the likelihood of martial law in the US as a result of the collapse of the economic system.

    In this episode, we discuss why the economy is at risk and what we can do to protect ourselves from the collapse of the current archaic and unfair system of bankster control of the money supply through the power to issue fiat currency with which it buys the loyalty of our representatives in government.

    This show will be rebroadcast on November at 8 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.

    The Shemitah Year and The Economic Ripples of the Day

    in Politics Conservative

    A while back before I became focused on my "get a replacement car" mission I was presenting and talking about a number of points relating to American history, the American economic system and the Federal Reserve, and the secularlist agenda.  I've drifted away from that for the simple reason that I had that gap where I didn't do any shows and moved on to other things.  But one subject that has become very relevant out of that, not because of me, but relevant all the same is the biblical year of the release or the "shemitah year".  Jonathan Cahn of course has a book out on this and while I've not read the book, I have read enough elsewhere to strongly feel that every 7th year, during a "shemitah year", we go through a correction.  A number of economists have pointed to 2015 being perhaps a very bad year and with the Shemitah year officially starting on sundown September 24th on our calendar, we've seen our share of interesting things since then.  Today, I wanted to talk a little bit about this as well as reference some of the arguments against it from some Christians out there and also if there's time share a couple of articles relating to the market and the economy that again point to potential trouble brewing.  That's today at 5:30 Eastern time and archived afterward.

    Income Inequality Is Hurting The Economy, 3 Dozen Economists Say

    in Politics Progressive

    Main topic: Discussion on Today's Huffingtonpost's Artical by CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER  Income Inequality Is Hurting The Economy, 3 Dozen Economists Say.

    The growing gap between the richest Americans and everyone else isn't bad just for individuals.

    It's hurting the U.S. economy.

    The growing gap between the richest Americans and everyone else isn't bad just for individuals.

    It's hurting the U.S. economy.

    "What you want is a broader spending base," said Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James, a financial advisory firm. "You want more people spending money."

    "The broader the improvement, the more likely it will be sustained," said Michael Niemira,

    Income inequality has steadily worsened in recent decades, according to government data and academic studies. The most recent census figures show that the average income for the wealthiest 5 percent of U.S. households, adjusted for inflation, has surged 17 percent in the past 20 years. By contrast, average income for the middle 20 percent of households has risen less than 5 percent.

    Economists appear to be increasingly concerned about the effects of inequality on growth. In a speech this month, President Barack Obama declared inequality the "defining challenge of our time."

    Now, he says, "there's not much denial of that ... and you're starting to see some research saying, yes, it does slow the economy."
