A program explaining the undemocratic workings of the monetary system and demystifying the manipulations of capital markets
Thanks to
of the Unwelcome Guests collective.
All Episodes will be added to this page as they are produced. The program is intended to be a course in understanding the monetary system of global capitalism and why it produces certain social conditions.

About the host:

Smithy has degrees in mathematics and economics, and she works as a consultant calculating investment risk for financial institutions, For this reason, she has chosen not to reveal her real name. She began to question the validity of the monetary system, and to look into its undemocratic and harmful effects after discovering Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman on her community radio station.

This is exactly why Pacifica and Goodman are under attack.
