We welcomed back to the show Dr. Armen Papazian to further discuss his innovative and groundbreaking money mechanics of space theory along with his having received the Alpha Centauri Prize Progenitor Award for his space economics work.  You can read more about the award, his theory and body of work at www.keipr.com.  Several times during our 1 hour 34 minute discussion, Dr. Papazian referenced his Cambridge University Business School Nov. 2013 presentation, “Our Financial Imagination and the Cosmos” which is at www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/media/2013/our-financial-imagination-and-the-cosmos.  During our first segment, Dr. Papazian introduced us to his space economic proposal which is to invest directly in NASA and space commerce by creating money through wealth, not by debt which is the traditional way of getting investment money into the banks to circulate it to industry.  As this theory may be difficult to understand, the first segment was devoted to describing how the system proposed by our guest would work, the use of Public Capitalization Notes (PCNs) rather than debt securities, and for the Fed to directly invest in NASA and the space industry about half of their monthly QE3 financial support going to the banking industry.  This would put abut $40 billion per month in the hands of NASA and the space industry as wealth investments, not debt.  Listeners asked our guest several questions to help understand the proposal, if the plan added to inflation, and to understand just how the PCNs would work.

In the second segment, we continued the discussion but listeners also wanted to know more about the plan which seems to bypass the banking industry.  Dr. Papazian explained that the banks were not bypassed but that the money would flow to them differently. Instead of from the Fed to be loaned out as debt, NASA and the businesses would get the funds direct as explained in the first segment and then the money would go to the banks in the form of deposits.  Remember that the banking industry leverages deposits with reserve ratios to increase their money supply to make loans so by the direct wealth investment in space, banks are still very much part of the process.  During both segments, we talked about the advanced technology regarding the space investments yet they were constrained by out of date financial methodologies and instruments.  Not only would this new space money mechanics increase space investment, it would also be used by NASA for more education.  Also mentioned during both segments was the traditional economic concept of scarcity.  Our guest spent lots of time debunking scarcity, especially with space given the vastness of the solar system, stars, all of space.  As you will hear, the reality of our environment is that it is not based on scarcity so why should our methods for creating money be based on scarcity.

Guest:  Dr. Armen Papazian.  Topics:  Creating money via wealth not debt to finance space development. Please direct all comments and questions regarding Space Show programs/guest(s) to the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com.

We welcomed Dr. Armen Papazian to discuss his space financing theories based on creating money in our global economy through wealth rather than by debt and debt instruments.  I urge you to read his papers and see his presentations on this subject at www.isdhub.com. Definitely download and reach “Money Mechanics For Space” which you will find on the left side of the website under the Planetary Referendum box.  Also, do vote on the Planetary Referendum, an issue our guest brought to our attention several times during our discussion.  You will also find additional presentations and papers of interest to us and this subject on the isdhub.com website so do check them out.  While our program was in two segments, the overriding discussion focused on how we presently create money by debt, why this is a problem causing methodology, and why we need to move to alternative ways to create money, both in the U.S. and around the world.  Since we do focus on lots of economics, having his papers and presentations handy to supplement our discussion will prove useful.  Dr. Papazian explained how we create money today and the problems our current methodology causes as it is based on the concepts of scarcity, risk, and time.  We spent considerable time talking about scarcity and time in economics, in the practical administration of government policy, academia, and why we need to move away from these concepts. Our guest suggested an alternative scenario in which money is created through wealth with space as the leading wealth creating industry because space represents abundance, not scarcity. A wealth based money creating economy does away with scarcity as the underlying foundation, replacing it with abundance. In this discussion, he introduced us to Public Capitalization Notes (PCN), a very important tool & part of this alternative approach to creating non-debt money. We fielded listener emails and calls with many questions for our guest.  Listeners wanted to know if there was a cost for money and how would that be handled?  What about the time value of money, risk & inflation?  Armen made it clear that he was not suggesting a disruptive change in our economic systems, instead, he was advocating a parallel economic system and an evolutionary approach toward wealth and abundance based money creation using PCN tools.  Near the end of our discussion, we applied what our guest was saying to space investments such as recent projects discussed on The Space Show and their very significant infrastructure requirements.  From this discussion, we learned how space can be a game changer and rather than banks, governments, and individuals owning debt, these financing parties would own equity or assets in the space project.  In Armen’s closing comments, he urged us to vote in the Planetary Referendum for Cosmic Awareness and to be supportive of their crowd sourcing program.
