Money As Debt DVD:  How money is created? I mean, you know how you earn it but where does it really come from? The answer may just shock you. It shocked me.

I watched this video on line. It is so good at explaining the conceptual notion of money that I wanted to own hard copy of it. The process of money creation is so astounding and so important for all of us to finally understand, I wanted to make the DVD easy for others to obtain. So I contacted the author in Canada and bought some to distribute here.

The Flags of Civil War North Carolina By Glenn Dedmondt

#FLOFNC $24.50



Flags stir powerful emotions, and few objects evoke such a sense of duty and love of one’s homeland. In April 1861, the first flag of a new republic flew over North Carolina. The state had just seceded from the union, and its citizens would soon have to fight for their homes, their families, and their way of life.

The Flags of Civil War North Carolina is the history of this short-lived republic (which later joined the Confederacy), told through the banners that flew over its government, cavalry, and navy. From the hand-painted flag of the Guilford Greys to the flag of the Buncombe Riflemen--made from the dresses of the ladies of Asheville--this collection is an exceptional tribute to the valiant men who bore these banners and to their ill-fated crusade for independence.
