This site’s primary purpose is to educate on monetary science and theory. Strong conflicts of interest exist so this area has been obfuscated, hidden and confounded.

As a result, the basic laws of monetary science are largely unknown.
The current instability in the financial markets is predictable according to the laws of monetary science. Like gravity, the current consequences, including all the violent wars, have been experienced throughout history.
