  1. Me, too, Alan. One point definitely in his favor is that he’s not pro-Israel and pro-War on Terror the way Bernie was. if he actually takes office, however, I think it will be extremely hard to make good on his campaign promises without undertaking monetary reform – this usually proves impossible for progressive politicians with the stranglehold the banks put on them. I think there would be some support for this at the Bank of England. I’m not totally sure where Carney stands on this, but at least he admits that banks create money out of thin air. But Michael Kumhof (a strong sovereign money advocates who used to work for the IMF) is still pushing hard for monetary reform in his new position at the BOE: http://www.monetary.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/kumhof-bank-of-england-why-banks-are-not-intermediaries-wp529.pdf
