2014 Infinite Banking Practitioner’s Think Tank- This very popular annual event is scheduled for 6-7 February, 2014. The event will take place in Birmingham, Alabama. Because of the exploding public demand for “Infinite Banking” policies, and the corresponding proliferation of IBC “experts,” we made the decision to create the Infinite Banking Institute which administers the IBC Practitioner’s Program (Agent Training).

BankNotes – November 2013

Nothing in recent years has convinced me more of this fact than attempting to explain the Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) to others. When I consider the number of years it took me to finally understand it, I wonder if its simplicity is not perhaps the real source of its difficulty. It is so simple it makes no sense! But, of course, that’s not it at all, there is much more to it than that. IBC involves matters having to do with money, credit and how it flows in the entirety of our economy. Those particular elements have never been simple for anybody.

One of the virtues of a dividend-paying whole life policy is the control the owner has over his money. In particular, policy loans are a very convenient way to access wealth stored in this fashion. Nelson Nash’s Infinite Banking Concept (IBC) uses policy loans as a way to “become your own banker.” Rather than relying on outside financiers and the associated interest payments, Nash encourages individuals to build up a warehouse of wealth inside one or more (appropriately designed) life insurance policies, so that major purchases can be financed through policy loans and paid back on the owner’s own terms.

An audience of 375 from 27 States for the Friday afternoon and evening were treated to a message from featured speaker, Dr. Ron Paul. He is the most outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve System under which we all live, thanks to a monopoly granted in December 1913. His book, End the Fed written in 2009 is widely read by many people who know the fallacies of central banks all over the world. Central banks have created the worst financial condition that has ever existed and Dr. Paul is the champion of exposing this fact.

Don’t think of problems as difficulties, think of them as opportunities for action. Hard as they are, they may turn out to be blessings in disguise. – C. F. Kleinknecht
Is it not true that most people look upon their problems only as difficulties? Even worse, they regard their problems as dreaded invasions of the serene life. Why this perverse view? Problems should be likened to birth pains; the good life has its genesis in them and their “painful “ overcoming. Let’s see if we can make the case for joyfully overcoming them.

BankNotes – July 2013

“During the weeks following the [1860] election, [Northern newspaper] editors of all parties assumed that secession as a constitutional right was not in question . . . . On the contrary, the southern claim to a right of peaceable withdrawal was countenanced out of reverence for the natural law principle of government by consent of the governed.” ~ Howard Cecil Perkins, editor, Northern Editorials on Secession, p. 10

BankNotes – June 2013

I believe that it is imperative that the public recognize the devastating consequences of Keynesian thinking that has dominated the economic world since the early twentieth century. Not to mention the monetarist thinking of Milton Friedman that has compounded the problem. Also understand that this thinking cannot continue indefinitely into the future. I believe that it is evident that history has demonstrated this truth. Unless the problem is understood there is not much chance of a solution.

BankNotes – April 2013

In both the Lara-Murphy Report and our book, How Privatized Banking Really Works, Carlos and I explain the benefits of Nelson Nash’s Infinite Banking Concept (IBC), which involves the disciplined use of dividend-paying life insurance policies. Since Nash himself couches the discussion in terms of whole life policies, we naturally did the same.
