About RichardMeet Richard Kotlarz

Richard began researching our economic system years ago; it began as a personal quest, yet grew over time to the point where he is now invited to speak on this topic by many organizations. He has researched the history and development of monetary systems in order to better understand our current economic situation, and offers his writings freely for sharing.

Due to the current economic climate, Richard has started a blog called New View on Money (under Richard's Blog). These articles will be archived and are available through the mailing list.

An introduction to his personal journey is available: Biography

Short movie clips introducing this topic are available at http://www.alchemyfilmsinternational.com/afs/index.html under TRAILER. Richard assisted in Ver.1.1, and participates in the presentation; I believe it is the stronger version of the two.The movie is an ongoing project at this time.


Richard has written several articles pertaining to our economic system, from its historical roots to current impact. Articles available online are listed with a brief description for your convenience. Longer articles have a linked index within the pages, and download times may be slightly longer (by a few minutes). There is a great deal of research, thought, and information condensed in these articles!
