Hackney campaigner takes on banks as he aims to tackle widening gap between rich and poor and escalating house prices, reads the title of the article in Hackney Gazette on 27th December 2013
Here’s a short extract:
The first time I hear author and campaigner Ben Dyson speak is at a social enterprise in Dalston.
He is giving a talk at a screening of documentary 97% Owned, a film in which he features and uncovers the way money is created by banks in the UK.
There are audible gasps and people shaking their heads at the event at Passing Clouds in Richmond Road as he reveals that most money being created in the economy is not ‘‘real’’, but an accounting trick.
