Creating money as an electronic bookkeeping entry and lending it, at interest, to governments, businesses and private individuals has a social cost to the American family.
Because now, all of our money is created as loan principal, no money, to pay interest, is ever created within the system. Value and wealth can be created, but banks only take interest payments in the form of money. Therefore, merchants must continually raise prices (or lower their labor costs or use cheaper raw materials) to capture this missing ingredient - the money they need to pay interest. This is the major cause of price inflation.

What Is The Cost To The Family?
If the cost of unpayable interest were wrung out of retail prices, perhaps American families could make ends meet? Perhaps the stress level, caused directly by unpayable debt, would become manageable? Perhaps divorce rates would decline?
