The collapse of the economy has hurt communities all across the world with little hope of recovery. This is because we have been led to believe that these financial systems are extraordinarily complex and beyond the understanding of the common person. Citizen Zeus says that it has always been a fairly simple con game and proves it by enumerating the ten financial practices which have precipitated the problems in our economies. He also reveals the five courageous steps we can take to transform the economy and re-create the good life once again. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast September 29, 2016.

Zeus Yiamouyiannis, Ph.D., is founder and chief operator of Dr. Zeus is a learning consultant and professional developer who transforms the ability of individuals and companies to learn how they learn. His customized coaching multiplies the value of current organization and training, accelerates performance, sparks useful conceptual thinking, identifies gaps, applies strengths, and improves communication, collaboration, and time effectiveness.

At the beginning of this interview I found myself becoming increasingly angry at the big financial setup, midway I collapsed into helplessness, but at the end I moved into personal empowerment. Thank you for taking the blinders off! A must watch.

Thanks Jean. The whole point is to make people both aware AND active and encouraged. Effective action requires both truth and helpful ways forward.

Jordan Maxwell has been telling people these things for close to half a century . Eustace Mullins was another .

I would love to pen pal with others and make things happen. How do I find like minded people in this area of creativity?

Citizen Zeus, posted on October 2, 2016

"Cirhodes1800", you can often feel alone, because our culture seems to support only individual knowledge. But how does one share one's own genius with others and gain their wisdom in community? I'd have to know more about your specifics (send me an email at, but sometimes it is simple as going the library and finding community groups on the bulletin board who are meeting around these concerns. is actually a community meeting site (not a dating site) over issues like this. "Simply Living" and other sustainable living groups have affiliates across the country. These can be a few places to start. Let me know what you find and send an email if you are not finding anything!

The underlying source is never addressed. This is like all of our courageous brothers and sisters diagnosed with a death disease and offering up comforting ways to live with the ailment. Once we again rise through ingenuity and cooperation the parasites who have no creative forces of their own will with their destructive appetites will again move in to prey on the innocent and naïve loving peoples. Our higher dimensional families of like minded creatures are not shrinking from the aggressors of truth. Nor should we. Its time to take full responsibility for our ascension. Healing wont take place unless every aspect of an underlying cause is addressed only a temporary relief. Along with all your other wonderful guests nuggets of brilliant approaches to the human condition. I am optimistic and grateful we are on he right track. Thank you with all my heart Regina and everyone there at Gaia TV you are all so inspiring.

Allen, What appears as a win for dark forces, can reveal surprising strength in the forces of light. The dark is revealing itself as unworkable and the actual conditions of the world support a potent truth about the bankruptcy of business-as-usual and the necessity (not just hopefulness) of a heart- and soul-based PRACTICAL and spiritual way forward. These things will come together. Have faith.

Hah! If we start looking at things the way this guy advises we will have surrendered to the NWO agenda 21 or 2030. Read'll find no difference. This is mind manipulation and social engineering at it's finest.

I almost did not watch this one because it dealt with finances, but I'm glad I did! Citizen Zeus has an honest way to relate to us about the reality of the US financial debacle and how we have all been hoodwinked by the government. He makes the financial system easier to understand and not so fearful as our government would want us to believe it is (too complicated). He explains it in a more positive way. The gig is up! We need to know the government has done a slight of hand job on the citizens. I want to listen to this again. This man has a sincere quality about him which I find refreshing. Heck, I would even like to see him do more segments just talking, explaining, and guiding us. What a cool guy. He somehow has a way to combine both the financial and spiritual. Wow, another good interview!

16:44--Who is, "Saying so"?
30:44--Who made these rules?
The system is broken.
How do we "start over"?
Before the "community" can "unify", we have to be/show love to everyone.

Where's the sign up for ascension via merkaba ... I want out of this creepy place . Seriously , I'm so done.

markdesign14, posted on September 29, 2016

From what I've learned--I maybe wrong--the path of ascension comes from finding oneness with all things.
Be it Good or Bad. But like David Wilcock said, "You have to cut the cords; and having only loving thoughts."
I guess this means "escapism"="fear"/"anger"/"repulsion".
Therefore, you'll only get more of the same (thoughts/feelings/feedback).

  1. Think happy thoughts, or do like the guy said near the end of this video.
  2. Find people how want to improve your local community.
  3. Be active within the organization.
  4. Bring like-minded people in it.
  5. Develop goals and a workflow.

Try to be as creative as you can be. That's the will of the creator.
We are the creator, experiencing it's self.

These methods of taking over a civilization's economy have been used for thousands of years by the oligarchs, the Invisible Controllers, Bankers. Zeus seems to know little about that history. The people were conned, plain & simple

Zeus is primarily blaming the people, and pitting the young against their parents and grandparents. . This is just plain nonsense, and is who the oligarchs love to see us blaming, defecting from those criminals who were truly responsible.
I would say, Ellen Brown has it right & she is so solution oriented. Please have more from Ellen, and her public banking solutions.

That said, I would love to invite creative young people a small spot in their tiny home on my land.

KLPH, posted on October 3, 2016

Don't worry Sluzen. We the younger don't actually blame you older gen.

I'm generally amazed what many in your gen did accomplish. I think the world was horrifically dark in the decades past - we can just clearly see it now.

Great idea. As a 30 something, I quite honestly don't want a home. I really don't care to own things. I would love a nest. And I refuse to be an economic slave - to give 80% of my vitality for what essentially amounts to little more than survival.

Perhaps you have an idea here. Private citizens who own land, and on a very small scale - i.e. one unit, they make contractual agreements were younger folks can create a nest. Not the landlord-tenant type arrangement. Something more centred around family/community.

My parents are reasonably comfortable financially - I have been wishing recently they might desire to buy land further out in the country. however those regions where they would elect to live and those that I would don't quite match up. Otherwise I would be over the moon if I could build a tiny house and be done with it - I have a nest. And my parents would clearly benefit in having someone that cares for their well being (their daughter) living on their land.

Government could be an obstacle here. Especially if it is true that there is a covert agenda to shove all us plebs, into over crowded cold hearted, soulless cities. And keep the wilderness "pristine".

There are always solutions. Always.

I loved episode, but it wasn't clear on how to connect with him on getting other papers he has written. I'm interested in the self esteem paper he mentioned at the beginning of the episode.

Misty, please write me at I can send you a e-copy of my dissertation, if you want more information.

This was a wonderful interview. I find myself an employee in a completely broken system which I don't want to ethically participate in despite personal security. (health care) I need to find new ways to use my skills and passions and excitement that supports the new paradigm of community. Thanks for the shot of inspiration from Citizen Zeus.

dee.angel, posted on September 29, 2016

Wow ! Thankyou so much for this interview. I have been holding on to so much out of fear of not having enough. My house is full of furniture and "stuff" after my mom passed. I have been gaining weight and holding on to that too. It just made sense, Release !! Downsize my home and myself so i can breath again ! I have never had much money and have always had to be creative in everything and i used to feel bad about that. And what i have found is that i LOVE to be creative !!! and i have shown other people how to be creative too! Now i feel pretty darn smart and good about myself. So thank you again for this interview. It woke me up.

This gentleman has the gift of explaining the simplicity, common sense, & logical understanding of a supposedly complicated subject of "Commerce Codes" versus "Natural Laws". We as "Created Sentient Beings" posses every God given, inherent right that we have not "knowingly" abandoned! We are all individual sovereign banks of value & wealth, and not a noun in some mans rule book! Therefore we are only obligated to be good stewards of our valuable standing. Fiat monetary systems only work well with honorable men supervising it so as to limit supply in circulation. The current Wells Fargo fraud is vey minor compared to their Bosses (the Federal Reserve), 99 years of "Constructive Fraud", as it is called in their UCC book of rules and codes AND, has NO statue of limitations. The Federal Reserve Act EXPIRED!!!! 4 years ago!! so the fraud requires restitution to the unsuspecting victims.
I could go on but,,, Thanks Regina & Citizen Zeus, great grace and peace to both you and yours

Regina Meredith ~ ~ ~ Thank you for this 'revolutionary' guest ~ I can't wait until you have him on again ~ ~ ~ I have to listen to this episode a second time to absorb all the important thoughts he has ~ ~ ~ This was really very good and helpful to us as individuals out here in 'world' ~ ~ ~ Peace

By far one of the best interviews I've ever seen. I love the revolution that Zeus is talking about - retrieving our souls and being humans again. Love, love. love it and as a former teacher, I can't wait to see what he has to say for education.

satempletonmd, posted on October 1, 2016

If these economic concerns are as serious as presented, why is he constantly laughing about it?? He makes is hard to take him seriously.

Hi Dee.Angel,

That is amazing; thank you so much for sharing! I'm so happy you enjoyed this episode and I'm so happy you've found your path. :)

This episode had nothing really new for me. Not a critique of the show, just the fact that I have been watching this transpire throughout my lifetime. My father words, "Work hard, keep your nose clean and strive for independence." and attempting to follow his huge example helped to save my family from the woes of these economic shenagins . While working hard and keeping ones nose clean no longer matters to the corporate world it served him well, working for forty years in the same company. With a tenth grade education, he rose from entry level to corporate leader in one of the largest glass producing corporations in the US. All the while, he never stopped moving his feet. Our garden produced enough organic food to hold us from season to season.

This post got chopped off. Guess there is a word limit. I had written several examples of doing for one's self in defence of corporate greed based on my father's examples. In a nutshell. The more that you can live within your means and do for yourself, the less that you will have to depend on the outside economy.

Regina finds amazing guests! I found Zeus to be very knowledgeable on the many variables affecting our current situation. What I appreciate and find unique in him is his ability to inform others about the darkness occurring with a powerful presence of it all being ok in the end. It reminds me that in the bigger picture perspective we can take action to help shape our reality, but much of it is a natural process that will unfold perfectly whether we can see it or not.
Since we a part of the Divine, part of the co-creative consciousness, why would we fear that we will write ourselves out of existence...
Zeus has a presence that reminds me of the Dalai Llama. You can address the issues fearlessly and with great focus, without ever losing your sense of joyful spirit.

Wouldn't it be great if citizens who have a little extra in the bank could provide interest free micro loans to people in their own communities? I know in my salad days $100 bucks made a huge difference to me. Maybe the payback is $20 bucks a month or yard work or some other service payment...OK I am not talking anything sexual...l see even a small project from the heart could be corrupted...but the lender gets a payoff of directly helping someone in their town and the borrower gets some direct help without getting ravaged with interest like those small loan shark companies charge. Everyone knows up front what is expected...the borrower has alternatives in place if repayment is too difficult. Lender could still get screwed but don't we have to take a chance? Can't be any riskier than the stock market. As I am typing this I seem to remember a gentleman from India winning the. Nobel for this idea....
