About (The) Money Files

Below are a few FAQ’s about MoneyFiles. But if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us (via the appropriately-named ‘contact us’ button in the header). We’re always looking for feedback about the site, and are glad to answer any questions we can.

Our Goal? — Our main objective is to educate people about the real inner-workings and cyclical patterns of the global economic system. More specifically: that there is no logic in coping with banking interests, which are dooming the world economy. Usury has to be abolished: it helps centralize power in the hands of a few while destroying the middle-class slowly on, and keeps the developing world enslaved.

“The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. “… – Thomas Jefferson… No state shall coin money emit Bills of Credit; make anything but Gold and Silver a Tender in payment of debts. U.S.Constitution A1s10

The root cause of this very disaster is mere ignorance and disinformation, linked to political worldwide manipulation of our financial markets. This manipulation has been facilitated, to a large degree, by the elimination of the gold standard. Without the gold standard, the free market suffers from economic tricks that lead to protectionism, high levels of corporate and political corruption, and outright thievery.

“By a continuous process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method, they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some….The process engages all of the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose.” – John Maynard Keynes Economic Consequences of the Peace, 1920

“We in the Congress have a moral and constitutional obligation to protect the value of the dollar and to understand why it is so important to the economy that a central bank not be given the unbelievable power of inflating a currency at will and pretending that it knows how to fine tune an economy through this counterfeit system of money.” — Dr. Ron Paul, US Congressman, R, Texas

By advocating awareness, and printing articles from sources around the world that explore this financial manipulation, MoneyFiles aims to free the financial markets of this manipulation once and for all – by supporting the re-adoption of the Gold Standard.

Are we a political entity? — Absolutely not! Although in favor of “small and limited governments” just as advocated by the U.S Constitution, the MoneyFiles staff believes that people today see everything as “right vs. left”, “liberal vs. conservative”, “Republican vs. Democrat” and so on. We, as a people, have to think our way out of this point-of-view, because it is a philosophical dead end. The fight for honest money is a non-partisan issue, which the Founding Fathers of America always endorsed as an universal concept.

Who runs MF? — Mainly Sharon-B Kayser-Scherman and her husband, Mark A. Scherman, along with (from time to time) a few spirited idealists, concerned about their future in a society where monopolies have taken over. Coming from different cultural backgrounds, they prefer to consider themselves “Citizens of the World.” Ethics ignore boundaries. They are aspiring writers, philosophers, and students of economics. We’re located in New York City.

How can you get involved? — Write to us! Tell us about yourself, and how you would like to get involved. We are always looking for aspiring writers and economists. …And our webmaster could certainly use some help, too! We’re a fun group to work with, and just think how sophisticated you’ll look at cocktail parties, when you tell people that you volunteer for some neo-economic-financial-grassroots website. You’re sure to be the life of the party!*
