Social Credit in a Sentence

     What is Social Credit?

     I have often been asked to explain it in a nutshell. So, as far as the purely economic aspects of Social Credit are concerned, here it goes:


     Social Credit is a proposal for a) the public regulation of the financial system (i.e., the banking and cost accountancy system), in conformity with b) the objective truth of the economy's physical potential and actual performance, for the sake of c) enhancing the common good of the individual citizens who make up a nation.


     The necessary implication of this definition is, of course, that the existing financial system is not designed to adequately reflect or mirror the facts of the real economy, nor is it designed to serve the common good. Instead, it artificially limits and distorts the real economy and serves the interests of an oligarchic elite.

Well put, Oliver. And for those who have time for reflection, it can be put in two words: social credit. It means what it says.

For example, does the social credit propose interest-free financing?

Following reference
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monetary_reform#Social_Credit_and_the_provision_of_debt-free_money_directly_from_government

"Alternatively, some monetary reformers such as those in the Social Credit movement, support the issuance of repayable interest-free credit from a government-owned central bank to fund infrastructure and sustainable social projects."

Hi Kyunkyun,

Social Credit proposes a monetary system which would a) ensure sufficient producer credit (in the form of repayable loans) to catalyze the production of any good or service that is physically feasible on the one hand and needed by consumers on the other and b) sufficient additional consumer buying power in the form of a 'debt-free' National Dividend and National Discount to balance incomes with final prices in every production cycle. As far as public production is concerned, any loans necessary for financing long term projects (infrastructure or public works) could be obtained from the National Credit Office at the costs of administration.

Thank you Oliver.
Let me ask about interest of commercial bank in the social credit.
Japanese social credit student says as follows.

"In the social credit, all the financing from commercial bank to the company is interest-free."

Is their understanding right?
On the other hand, Louis Even explains about interest of commercial bank in the social credit as follows.

"The financing from commercial bank to producer is interest-bearing."
"The financing from commercial bank to retailer is interest-free."

Is the understanding of Louis Even right?
