Debt Is a Weapon for Taking Your Things Away
Posted on Jan 20, 2014
The treasured University of Missouri, Kansas City economics professor Michael Hudson explains to RT how debt is currently being used “as a means of foreclosing on property and transferring” it “from the debtor to the creditor.”
“That’s how almost all of the wealthy oligarchies in every country of the world in history got rich,” he says. “By making a loan and then foreclosing on the assets and then impoverishing the other people. And that’s the business plan we have today.”
Hudson begins at the 5-minute mark.
