Letter To The Editor:

Usury-Free Finance is the 'Mother Theresa' of 21st Century Economics
By Tommy-Usury: Free

Just as the design flaw of 'usury' is the feeding frenzy for power, pride, ego, greed, and arrogance of the 'usury' elites' group of companies and their political pawns who are in cahoots with the IMF, the WTO and the World Bank, this same yoke of 'usury' is the direct and/or indirect cause of the poverty, scarcity and lack that troubles all of the third world countries, the middle class and the poor in North America and elsewhere, the anti-globalization protestors as well as many others who are too afraid to protest.

Usury-free finance is the 'Mother Theresa' of 21st Century economics and its immediate implementation is essential to stop the genocide by the IMF, the WTO, the World Bank and 'usury' elites' group of companies. Usury-free finance is possible NOW and has been possible since Michael Linton created the 'usury-free' LETS (Local Employment Trading System) software in 1983. Details at the Barter/LETS Cyberclassroom:

Perhaps it will be necessary for a municipal government to demonstrate how a 'usury-free' community currency can function at the local level with ease given our modern technology. After a municipality launches and evaluates a beta project as a proven method of creating prosperity and abundance for all who participate, provincial and national governments can implement similar projects. Eventually, a 'usury-free' time currency can be implemented at the global level and there will be 'peace and plenty' by 2020.

What better municipality to do this than the City of Ottawa which is hosting the G-20 this weekend. We, the citizens of Ottawa need to show the political will to demand that the City of Ottawa initiate a pilot project NOW.

Mayor Bob Chiarelli and the 21 Ottawa Councillors have had a proposal on their desks and computers since I delivered a printed copy by hand and emailed a copy to them on November 30th, 2000. Read the proposal and the follow up emails at this URL:

To show a definite political will for the implementation of  'usury-free' finance at the municipal level of government, readers are invited to print the petition and get it signed by family, friends and neighbours and mail it to the address provided. Details at this URL:

Working with you for 'peace and plenty' by 2020
