Dear Friends,

We proudly announce our 19th Annual AMI Monetary Reform Conference, bringing the world’s leading experts on monetary history and theory together with the world’s most serious advocates of achievable monetary reforms.

The 19th annual AMI Conference will be held on the Zoom platform, which has many advantages over an in-person conference. The dates and (approximate) times will be:

Friday, September 29:  5:30 pm – 10:00 pm Central Time (USA)

Saturday, September 30:   8:30 am – till 6:30 pm Central Time (USA)

Sunday, October 1:  8:30 am – till 6:30 pm Central Time (USA)

 

The Conference will have a focus on exploring the global monetary system’s immoral dimension and the ethics of reform. We’ll listen to voices from other nations on their monetary circumstances, including suggestions for reform, and consider different views on international or local currency systems.

Registration cost will be $35. Please go to “Register Now”.

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

The 2023 AMI Conference  Team
