VOODOO ECONOMICS: Exposing The Narrative Of Debt, Fear, And Insecurity


Source –

“… Instead of being at war with the wealthy and the managers of our wealth, why not work with us? Leave wealth with those who ‘have earned it’ they would say. Leave it with those who know how to manage it, how to make it grow and give a healthy return. Instead, give the poor debt. Or to paraphrase the obvious, “Let them eat debt:”

On March 4 1933 FDR in his inaugural address to the American people said,

“…the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself….”

And it’s true. It is fear more than anything else that prevents people from turning away from what has failed them and stays their hand from picking up the tools which would allow them to build what would work better.  And precisely because it is true, every politician, banker, judge and…

NHA Party Newsletter September 2017


”We were very pleased with the 12,093 votes we received in SW Surrey, where our candidate Dr Louise Irvine stood against Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt. Dr Irvine came second with 20% of the vote. Jeremy Hunt was clearly very rattled by our success and, in his acceptance speech, accused Dr Irvine of lying about the government’s record and motives on the NHS. Dr Irvine has responded with a widely-read rebuttal, “The facts don’t lie and nor do I”.

We couldn’t have done it without a local cross-party collaboration, and we are very grateful to all those who helped us take on Hunt. The Green Party candidate, Susan Ryland, stood down for Louise and many local Labour Party and Lib Dem members actively campaigned for her, as they believed she had the best chance of beating Jeremy Hunt.
