You Are Not A Loan

Most people are drowning in debt--one in seven Americans are pursued by debt collectors--that can never be paid off. Cities and public institutions are in much the same predicament. How can a democracy survive when its citizenry are so beholden to banks? Andrew Ross, author of Creditocracy and the Case for Debt Refusal, will explain how we got landed with this lifelong debt burden and why we don't have to accept it.
