Dear Friends,

We proudly announce our 17th Annual AMI Monetary Reform Conference, bringing together some of the world’s leading experts on monetary history and theory together with some of the world’s most serious advocates of real and achievable economic and monetary reforms.

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the conference will be held again on the Zoom platform, which has many advantages over an in-person conference.

To accommodate international scheduling we will have two speakers on Friday starting at 4 pm CT-US followed by a social hour beginning around 8 pm CT-US.

The conference is split up into five sessions and times are subject to change.

Below you will find the tentative, now almost finalized, schedule and the speakers so far booked, including their bios.

For people new to this subject matter, or just to get an overview of the conference, we have composed a document titled “Advanced Study Notes.

Thanks and warmest regards, hoping to see you on Zoom,

The 2021 AMI Conference Team
Steven Walsh
Govert Schuller
