“That this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government [and an economy/financial system] of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address

“The material out of which we shall build a new world is in us, in our minds, in our memory of things past, in our hopes for the future. We are the source. We shall conceive it. We shall design it. And we shall put it into operation.” ~ John W. Gardner, Founder, Common Cause.


Welcome friends, to The Bretton Woods IV Con-vocation/Calling-Together: Live Free & Prosper ~ Toward the Redemption of Our Financial System & Restitution of Our Common Wealth.


You are invited to join fellow citizens from across our county, state, nation, and from around the world for the historic opening, September 29th, and/or conclusion, October 6th, as well as to journey with us ~ through the days in between ~ in the fall “flush” of New Hampshire’s First-in-the-Nation Presidential Primary Season.


The Convocation invites all people of good will who:


1) Recognize the significance of Bretton Woods and its 1944 monetary conference, both in the history of the United States and in the history of our world. Money not only “makes our world go ’round”, but brings our affairs to a grinding halt.


2) Seek, accordingly, to address what we suggest is the root of the worldly problems-challenges–opportunities before us: the redemption of our current “debt-based” monetary/money system. (Redemption, we note, is no less a financial term.) New directions in commerce and culture are integral, we suggest, to such an aspiring labor.


3) Are committed to working together in the spirit of good will. For such constructive actions alone, we believe, provide the basis for healing and renewal in and for our time.


Those, unable to join us on location at Bretton Woods, who grasp the vision of the Convocation: Live Free & Prosper ~ Toward the Redemption of Our Financial System & Restitution of Our Common Wealth, are invited to:


^ Send your greetings, best thoughts, and reflections on the Convocation’s vision;


^ Help host a companion (satellite) convocation in your community, county, state, or land. Responses, to date, have come from as far afield as Australia. The proposed focus of such companion convocations are the themes of redemption and restitution: economic justice.


For information with respect to both points, feel free to contact us at: info@brettonwoodsiv.org.
