The Economic Tree website has been created for the sole purpose of exploring our economic system. Why now? Because the global economy is shaking worse than ever. The American dollar is spiraling out of control, food-crops are going into gas tanks, grocery costs are climbing, foreclosures are rampant, and The People are growing restless.

But few really know WHY. Average, hard-working decent people are getting clobbered - why?

These are symptoms of a much deeper crisis we collectively, nationally and globally, are facing. Understanding what "it" is that drives our money system is the first step in remedying the problems we face.

The goal of this site is to provide information on several levels, from the 'average Elaine' in the streets to in-depth studies offered by Richard. This IS NOT a dry Economics 101 course to make you yawn, such as one would learn in college. Rather, it's a site about YOU and ME, our country, and what is gnawing away at our financial structure - in our homes and abroad. It's a story that may shock you, but "the truth will set us free". Hard times now, harder times to come unless we address the unseen roots of our economic system.

Page Features

Richard's Page contains many in-depth articles of varying lengths pertinent to our times. "The Bear-Stearns Fiasco" is an example of recent events in the news.

Richard's Blog has links and information to his daily column. These are short, easy-to-read articles; no fees, charges, or subscriptions are required.

Elaine's Views are my articles, website creator. They tend to be 'short, simple, and sharp' at times, even a bit scattered - they reflect my life. YouTube on "how credit cards work" can be found here.

Quizzes and Links offers two short quizzes to test your knowledge and links to other sources. You can even find creative ways to fold a dollar - then pass it on!

The System is a YouTube featuring a slideshow combined with a song produced by David Daniels and the Talkin' Roots Crew. Marbles illustrate a basic economic concept. Quick-link to the YouTube here.

Contact and Home are self-explanatory. The Contact Page has a form for submitting requests or questions. Printed versions of these articles can be requested, also. (There is a charge for printing costs.)

This, then, is where the adventure begins...
