The American Monetary Institute has invited me to speak at their 2010 Monetary Reform Conference, at the University Center in downtown Chicago, between September 30th and October 3rd. I have agreed, though since this is in the middle of a teaching period for me it will be a “lightning trip” to the USA–leaving Sydney on Wednesday 29th and leaving Chicago on Monday 4th.
I’ll give a presentation covering the statistics on the debt-driven process that led to the economic crisis, an explanation of how money is created in a pure credit economy (based on my “Roving Cavaliers of Credit” post on this blog), and a model of debt-deflation as covered in my recent talk in New York.
If you’d like to attend the conference, the organisers have agreed to give a $45 discount on the $395 registration fee to anyone who is referred from my blog. If you’d like to attend, click here to send an email to reserve a place at the conference. They don’t have an online fee payment system for the conference, though you can use their PayPal link to pay your fee. Alternately, you can send a check to:

I hope to see some of you there.
