"The right to coin money and issue money is a function of government.... - William Jennings Bryan.
There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt. - President John Adams
The government ended up in debt for money it could have generated itself, indeed should have generated itself under the Constitution.
- Ellen Brown, author "Web of Debt"
A Public Bank will support economic freedom and liberty. A public bank owned by the State of NH, is not government interference with the free market but rather, a great support by providing "money", that allows the free market to function.

The Missing Money Mystery
If you look at any of the critical problems we face today- the growing chasm between the rich and the poor, dis-empowerment and corporate control of our democracy, and the lack of public investment in the things we need for decent living: infrastructure, education, jobs, housing, health care, and elder care, the underlying systemic causes all point to MONEY!- there's never enough to do what we need, and yet it is abundant in the hands of the ultra-wealthy. This dis-proportion often skews politics away from the majority of people. People have been galvanized to get money out of politics through organizations set up to initiate campaign finance reform and even seeking Constitutional amendments. The money we use in the economy is even less well understood, although there have been many efforts to change it such as; public and postal banking, complementary currencies, Modern Money Theory (MMT), the NEED act, and calls to move money out of the big banks into smaller credit unions. It's time to bring all the disparate efforts together to bring responsibility to Concord and how the state manages our tax-payer funded wealth. It is time to take control over our participation in the private, debt based system that makes a few people very rich and powerful while impoverishing the rest.
Where does money come from?
Who creates it?
Who decides how it gets used?
Why haven't we "got any money"?
Because we are put in the position of not being able to do what we want simply because of a lack of printed paper called "money".
