Tom J. “UsuryFree” Kennedy was on the Power Hour with Joyce Riley on July 8, 2014 in an interview I helped to arrange.

He spoke about his experience in founding usury-free community currencies, and why they are an essential component to a sound monetary system (starting 8 minutes in).

For more on Tom J. Kennedy, see:

One of the misconceptions bandied about in the alternative media is that Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan claimed in 2007 that the Fed was above the law, as this popular video indicates.

Josh TolleyI was a guest on the Josh Tolley Show on January 28, 2014, and I talked about economic freedom and the an entrepreneurial economy vs. an employment economy (from 14 mins. to 37), especially vis-a-vis Canada and the U.S., and how Canada has increased its freedom relative to the U.S. for five straight years according to the Heritage Foundation.

I said how I had watched other State of the Union addresses but wouldn’t be watching this one.

Then, I talked about usury-free community currencies like those by Wayne Walton of Colorado and Tom J. Kennedy of Ottawa, Canada.

I was pleasantly surprised to hear a caller call in during the start of the second hour and said that he had heard me on another network (Oracle Broadcasting) and he really appreciated the point I had made about the educational system.

Doug NewberryOn the January 27, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed fellow Oracle Broadcasting host, Doug Newberry, of Crisis of Reality in the first hour. We discussed the gun-grabbing agenda, the economy, and the nature of real money.

Tom Woods had no time for a Bitcoin conference, yet had time to misrepresent government-issued currencies and “I don’t agree with Austrian economics.”
