Honoring Stephen Zarlenga

“Ethical Markets Media honors the lifelong work of Stephen Zarlenga, author of THE LOST SCIENCE OF MONEY and founder of the American Monetary Institute, our partner in urging for monetary reform.  His life of service is helping bring the reforms he advocated.

We continue our support and collaboration with the Institute.  ~Hazel Henderson, Editor”

It is with profound sadness that we reach out to you today.  As Trustees, we are writing to let you know that AMI Founder and Director, Stephen Zarlenga, passed away on Tuesday, the 25th of April after a courageous fight with cancer.


Stephen was a true Renaissance man of deep integrity.  He was dearly beloved by all who knew him well. His extraordinary mind, breadth of knowledge, and special care for humanity made him a visionary in the field of monetary reform.

His life has been devoted to educating Americans about the need for monetary reform and to his passion for justice and the well-being of all.  We know it was a great comfort to him that his work will be carried forward according to his wishes within the American Monetary Institute.


There are no words to express our gratitude for your ongoing support and unending efforts in spreading Stephen’s lifelong work and words embodied in his book, The Lost Science of Money.

We are sure he will be watching over us, nudging our minds should we stray from the path he created.  We will be in touch with details regarding Stephen’s memorial and the future plans for AMI.


May Stephen forever rest in peace.
