A controversial monetary system advocated by C.H. Douglas that had many proponents in the early to mid part of the 20th century. Argued that economic crises were caused by a lack of distribution in the ownership of private property which in turn was caused by a lack of purchasing power. Social Credit aimed to redress this by having the government issue each citizen "dividends" with which they can purchase goods and property. The social credit movement reached had its greatest support in western Canada during the 1930s when it formed government in Alberta. The movement also had a number of proponents in Britain and New Zealand.
