What is Positive Money?

We’re a movement for a money and banking system that works for society and not against it.

We’re campaigning for the power to create money to be used in the public interest, in a democratic, transparent and accountable way, rather than by the same banks that caused the financial crisis.

We’re based in the UK but have sister organisations in 17 countries.
