The Sound of Economics

Sound Money Economics System was a fringe political party in Manitoba, Canada, during the provincial election of 1941.

Full bio

The group claimed to be a non-political and non-sectarian organization, willing to work with "any government and the people to end unemployment permanently". The need to permanently end involuntarily being without a job was assigned by SMES to the money system and (or within) the economic system. This is consistent with money system reform efforts and The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money by John Maynard Keynes.

The SMES ran three candidates in Winnipeg, all of whom fared poorly. The party seems to have disappeared shortly after the election.
