The Origins of Social Credit
Development of modern banking has resulted in nations losing the power to issue most of their own money. The financial system, worldwide, is based on debt.

Regional Development

The Democrats for Social Credit Party is committed to:

• Ensuring basic services, amenities and employment are available in every region, thereby aiding the reverse of population drift to urban centres.

• Upgrading roads and bridges, which will remain in public ownership.

• A re-established Local Authorities Loans Board to decide, with community consultation, the priority of capital works in the region.

• Voter-approved local body initiatives, funded by Reserve Bank grants, nil interest and low interest loans through the Community Credit Programme.

• Regional flood control, soil conservation, energy conservation and water quality projects, funded by the Community Credit Programme.

• Processing primary produce close to the source, enhancing job opportunities and helping reverse the drift to cities.

• The use of modern information technologies, enabling businesses to decentralise.

• Making services available to regions at no financial disadvantage, including the reinstatement of an appropriate South Island electricity price differential.

• Full consultation with communities on regional development projects that affect them.
