Dutch Austrian economics fanboi pushing fiscal snake oil through his Natural Money website. Also Craig Lazo's new "respectable" home for his Killtown conspiracy snake oil. Striking snail oil is easy, but, as Lazo could tell anyone, selling it to non cultists is a bitch.






Natural Money

Sometime in 2008 Ikink started spamming his Natural Money scam across the Intertubes. The plan seems to be:

1: abolish interest
2: 12 steps
3: ???
4: PROFIT
Go to Ikink's Oped News article for the tl;dr version reading partly:


A far more efficient economic system is possible
12 steps to freedom and wealth


Summary

We live in an economic system that is very inefficient. The consequences of these inefficiencies are clearly visible in the form of the credit crisis. Many companies will go bankrupt because of lack of demand, even though they make useful products. Many people will become unemployed, so demand falls back even further. Governments and central banks are intervening, which disturbs the functioning of markets. This enables inefficient companies to remain in business when they benefit from government intervention and the intervention in the financial system by central banks.

Now we are at the point that the authorities have taken over most banks. In the future the state will place banks under strict supervision, so that the state will decide who gets money and who does not. This is the global communist revolution of October 2008.

It is possible to achieve a much greater prosperity, with maximum capital growth without inflation, large debts, economic crises, unproductive government intervention and the unproductive part of the financial sector. Natural selection will ultimately determine the most efficient economic system, despite the political power structures that still exist at this moment. The investigation of alternatives and dissemination of knowledge will accelerate this process, but the ultimate outcome will not change. The most efficient economic system is, I believe, a variant of the economy of the natural order, which was first described by Silvio Gesell.

In this article I will show in 12 short steps how the economy of the natural order will work. Then I will give a real world example of the economy of the natural order, showing that it works as described. Then I will illustrate the strength of the economy of the natural order, using examples from history. On www.naturalmoney.org the theory is described in detail.

The charging of interest is the way to slavery. This is because people may be hoarding money for a rainy day. When more people do this simultaneously, money is removed from circulation, weakening the economy. When this happens, even more people will start hoarding money, because they expect times getting worse. This is the beginning of an economic crisis. Many people will lose their income, and if they do not have money, they must borrow money against interest for unavoidable expenses such as food. As a result, the situation becomes even worse.



Abolition of interest is the way to freedom. Free people are more productive than slaves. Abolition of interest will therefore lead to greater prosperity.

For more go to his website Natural Money Dot Con.

Few people have been impressed by Ikink's repackaged Austrian Economics Natural Money Magic, not even the really smart ones at Marilyn vos Savant. But then Ikink's main challeger is another Libertarian, equally out of touch with reality, so even smart people can be dumb. What we know is 4 years later this Natural Money Economic miracle has not taken off like wild fire. Until there's proof otherwise, we call SCAM.

For those interested in wasting time understanding the details of Ikink's scam there is plenty to read at:

Silvio Gesell's ideas are discussed extensively in peer-reviewed literature as well as online; they're just shut out of the mainstream, corporate-approved debate, as banning interest and taxing money threatens the banker's undeserved and unjust monopoly power over the economy.

"Killtown" at Natural Money

Craig Lazo's Killtown conspiracy "research" has been hosted many places over the years, among them Koolpages, Geocities, blogspot, Webfairy and 911review.org. Only blogspot, webfairy and 911review remain, but that should be enough ever for a raging drama queen attention whore like Lazo. But apparently not, because Ikink is now mirroring Lazo's files

Update: The Honeymoon is over.  All files under /killtown/ have been deleted from the naturalmoney.org domain.  Some remain in cache:

One con artist meets another. Here's the infamous "oddities" page:

http://www.naturalmoney.org/killtown/oddities.html

A possible explanation comes up in Google search for Killtown. The first result, 911review.org(which once said Lazo's first name was "Gus"), might be unsafe:

Killtown: Questioning the 9/11 attacks...
killtown.911review.org/
This site may be compromised.
Welcome to Killtown. Questioning the 9/11 attacks. ... Penta-Lawn 2000! • Pentanium Cable Spools! • 9/11 Links. Blog's. • Killtown. • Flight 93 Photo Fraud ...
Oh noes! Hacked again? Everything happens to these people!
UPDATE: hack confirmed: SEE Craig Lazo's page, scroll down to 911 Review Website Hacked?

But if 911review.org is hacked or unsafe, why is the Natural Money mirror linking back to it?

Could it be Killtown at 911review isn't hacked, but is hosting malware? Time to drop whois docs:

How did Lazo and Ikink meet? Skimming through Ikink's articles, they probably share a connection through Lazo's old pal Rockwell's Von Mises Institute. Ikink seems to have taken an active interest in "Inside Job" conspiracies in 2009 where he mentions Lazo's Killtown work and links to the 911review site :

Incidents, accidents and coincidences
June 11, 2009 - March 18, 2012


Author: Bart klein Ikink

[SNIP]
Inside job

In March 2001 the American Fox TV network aired the pilot episode of the short lived series The Lone Gunmen. The main plot of this show focused on a plan by rogue elements in the United States government to hijack a jet aircraft by remote control and crash it into the World Trade Center in order to justify an increase on military spending and a war on terror.


Twin Towers destruction The Coup

Another coincidence is that West Coast rap duo The Coup had put out an advance graphic of their late 2001 release Party Music on their publicity company's web site months before 9/11, which depicted explosions in the Twin Towers at nearly the exact same points that the planes hit. The apparent detonation device held by MC Boots Riley is labeled Covert Labs. Pam the Funkstress is seen holding conductor's batons as if directing an orchestra [+].

These prophetic coincidences can be seen as a message from God suggesting that rogue elements in the United States government are behind the September 11 attacks and that the collapse of the World Trade Center was caused by explosive devices. Covert labs may mean that the perpetrators have invented a secret explosive substance and the orchestra may hint at the attacks and the collapse being orchestrated. It is therefore remarkable that a high number of suspicious coincidences and circumstances surround the September 11 attacks. The website killtown.911review.org has a list of those coincidences and suspicious circumstances.


Ikink is a religous nut who shares a numerology fetish with Lazo:


Today’s date is 10-11-06. Write that down on a piece of paper, flip it around, and what does it read?

Now the address of the building is 524 E 72nd St.

7 + 2 = 9

5 + 2 + 4 = 11

But I’m sure all of this is nothing more than a series of “bizarre coincidences.”

Looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
