The Islamic faith at least recognises usury or interest on money as a problem. Sharia finance purports to satisfy the Islamic prohibition of interest but, somewhat like the emergence of double-entry bookkeeping to obscure illicit profits from usury in the Christian world, it is often more an illusion than strict observance of the prohibition.
21st Century Usury: The need for a Moral Economy
“Imagine having the power to control time. To manipulate time. To become its master. Instead of feeling like a slave to time, imagine what you might do, if you had the power to make time work for you? Throughout the world, our time is controlled, manipulated and directed, by ‘Masters of the Universe’. Men who are adept in these ancient secrets, and have the power to make “our” time work for them. They are the bookkeepers.”
Centralisation of money by dint of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) is the mechanism that underpins The Great Reset as described by Klaus Schwab and launched under the cover of the alleged COVID-19 pandemic.

However, as we’ve consistently argued in recent papers, this central planning thesis is both flawed and being eclipsed by decentralising forces.
Individual, personal morality operating within a self-organising political economy is the only means by which morality and money can be reconciled to satisfy human needs on a global scale. Thus where money comes from and who controls it, is a foundational question.
There will undoubtedly be a “great reset” but we know the centrally planned option espoused by central banks and the World Economic Forum (WEF) cannot work and will lead to widespread chaos and suffering. There are historical precedents such as the various 5 year plans adopted by the Soviet Union and China – both centrally controlled regimes killed millions.
The challenge is to re-envisage money for a “great reset” that will benefit everyone. That process of exploration of alternatives is already well underway but is largely ignored by those who have a vested interest in trying to shore up the dying status quo.
