The American Monetary Institute sends news of the fully booked Conference on Money Reform at Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute which took place earlier this month. Our Money, Our Banks, Our Country: Money Creation in the Modern Economy Conference was presented at the beautiful Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute near Zurich, Switzerland.

It was well organized and hosted by Uli Kortsch, founder of the Monetary Trust Initiative and Global Partners Investments.

Speakers on money creation and current conditions included Prof. Richard Werner, Prof. Larry Kotlikoff, William White, William Dunkelberg, and Martin Wolf, Chief Financial Commentator, Financial Times. Read more about the contributors here.

In general, there was a consensus that change was needed.

There were presentations for the Swiss full money initiative by

Prof. Sergio Rossi,

Prof. Joseph Huber,

and Lecturer Katarina Serafimova

and against by

Economics Editor Jurg Muller,

Prof. Aleksander Berentsen,

and Ruedi Noser, politician.


Robert Poteat*, Director, American Monetary Institute summarises:

In terms of a debate, the presenters for the initiative gave well-constructed and documented presentations with slides and data. The presenters against the initiative provided no data or logic to support their position.  Their arguments mostly relied on fear of change.

In the opinion of this observer, the people against the initiative gave strength to support the initiative with the intellectual poverty of their arguments.*
