Annotation

Proposal for a new monetary system that would have no interest or credit and no debt. Says that the medium of exchange should be “As elastic and plentiful as the goods and services to be exchanged.” Based on the Harmony Co-operative Industrial Association” founded in Saskatchewan in 1895 that issued script within the community and lasted for five years. Proposes the same for Canada as legal tender. This would be a “scientific money, owned and controlled by the Sovereign People as plentiful as the commodities or services to be exchanged, we would lay the foundation for uniform and permanent commercial progress that would grow and expand without any setback, to the limit of the labour power to be obtained” (11). Would be issued by a central bank. Stresses its compatibility with Christianity. Most of the changes among additions are added quotations from other people.
