Catherine A. Fitts on restoring economy = power to the people

A couple of years ago I had the privilege of briefly meeting Catherine Austin Fitts, who was the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Housing under George H.W. Bush. My friend Mark C. had been telling me about her courage – what had happened to her when she discovered what’s going on in our financial system, continued to dig deeper and wouldn’t stop “speaking truth to power.”

You can hear her in an interview online that I highly recommend. At about 44 minutes into the hour on the linked video, she mentions the existence of game-changing energy inventions.

“If you unsuppress technology which is available or known or sitting in the lab, there’s enough wealth to create…it’s mind-boggling,” Fitts says. “But that would require aligning the interest of the financial system with the interests of the people.”
What I like is that she doesn’t give up on the future. Instead of just revealing more and more dirt (such as that revenues from the illegal drug business prop up the big money market banks), she’s figured out what needs to be done to restore her country’s economy – and restore local economies elsewhere too. For that service to the people, the Bush administration drove her out of government.

She talks in facts, not speculation, and in plain words and human terms about where things are headed and why, and what people can do to turn things around.



  1. Truth-tellers are always in the cross-hairs of the Big Guns – bless her for her work – and for not giving up.

  2. It’s interesting because most people know the truth. The majority of people know that most of the power and wealth in the world is controlled by a small number of people.
    The problem is we all feel helpless in changing things. We feel their is nothing we can do about it. But the good news is it doesn’t matter.

    What matters is simply that you know, the rest will eventually take care of itself. As Catherine points out thanks to the internet their is now a slow awakening occuring within our society that will over time only grow stronger.

    I personally believe things may well get worse before they get better. But we should all be comforted by the fact that they WILL get better. Nothing can change that, it is the natural way of things.
