Usury and the Money Power




This is a series of lectures based on ongoing research being gathered for Michael Hoffman's proposed book, "Usury: The Mortal Sin that Was and Now Is Not." In these audio CDs, Hoffman challenges the conventional history of the revolutionary permission for usury, documenting a pre-Protestant, Catholic source for this permission. In addition, he offers evidence of widespread, early Puritan resistance to usury. 

This 2.5 hour lecture series on 3 CDs counters the widespread ignorance of the history of early Protestant resistance to usury and exposes the propaganda which assigns the blame for usury to John Calvin, rather than the philosophers and theologians backed by the Fugger banking dynasty and indoctrinated by the liberal Tübingen school of Catholic philosophers.


We cannot successfully contest the Wall Street/Federal Reserve system without accurate knowledge of the 1500-year history of the Christian campaign against indebtedness, social injustice and plutocracy. This history is mostly unknown today.

Many contemporary conservative Christians imagine that the Church was a sort of early branch of laissez-faire capitalism, and that it was the Protestant Reformation which was responsible for the revolutionary overthrow of the Christian ban on interest on loans. None of this is true.

Setting the historical record straight by telling the suppressed story of the Catholic and Protestant churchmen who vigorously fought usury, as well as the modernizing Judases who supported it, gives us the clarity of vision necessary in our time to successfully fight the dragon that is the Money Power. Note: these talks are study lectures, not entertainment.

Digitally recorded in stereo. 156 minutes total. 3 CD set.

Dear Mr. Hoffman,

The battle against the Money Power cannot be waged without a proper understanding of usury. And, of course, a solid program for reform.

It is amazing how little attention Usury gets even in the 'alternative media', which has been utterly corrupted by 'austrian economics' (see http://realcurrencies.wordpress.com/faux-economics/).

Quantifying the disastrous implications of Interest is also very important. See for instance Budget of an Interest Slave (http://realcurrencies.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/budget-of-an-interest-slave-2/)

All of my articles on Usury and solid reform aimed at ending it can be found at my page Interest-Free economics http://realcurrencies.wordpress.com/interest-free-economics/

I'm happy to see that a man of your great power is taking the issue up, because the Jewish Question and Usury are unseparable.

Dear Anthony

Actually my research on usury has almost nothing to do with Judaism other than mentioning the various loopholes which the rabbis invented to circumvent the law of God.

Usury by “Christians” was, and is, the main plague.
