Jesús Manuel Utrilla TrinidadJesús Manuel Utrilla Trinidad holds a Degree in Economic and Business Sciences from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a Bachelor of Theology from Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca. When the real estate bubble burst in Spain, around 2008, he was a high school Economics teacher in Ceuta (Spain). All of his students and their families asked him questions about why the economy was going down and so many people were going bankrupt. He wrote a short article for them explaining that the problem had a monetary root in the way money was being created by commercial banks. Then he met Positive Money and saw that there was a similar association in Spain, Dinero Positivo, which was part of the IMMR. He joined Dinero Positivo and took part in the first IMMR meeting in Brussels. Since then he has been an activist for Sovereign Money. At first, he dedicated himself to giving talks to explain why the money we have is actually created by banks in the form of debt, and why that is the root of the problem. Thanks to his historical knowledge, he realized that the idea of sovereign money was already used by kings during the Middle Ages, and that it was very present in the ancient history of Greece and Rome. He knew the work of Stephen Zarlenga. Currently, his intention is to show how, since the Persian Wars, History and its events cannot be explained without considering the struggles for monetary sovereignty.
Jesús Manuel Utrilla Trinidad will give a lecture in Spanish titled "Uso del dinero soberano: enseñanzas de la historian" / "Use of Sovereign Money: Teachings from History." There will be a simultaneous translation available.
