Report by James McCumiskey:
Last Saturday, Positive Money had a stall at the Compass Annual Gathering. The venue was filled with people interested in tackling big political questions: How do we make systemic change happen in this political and global context? How could we be organising to have more impact?
Last month, I visited Manchester and Sheffield on the invitation of Adrian Byrne and Peter Verity, who are part of the Positive Money groups in those cities. They were connecting with their universities’ alternative economics societies to introduce Positive Money and the issues surrounding money creation to students – Post-Crash in Manchester and the Alternative Economics Society in Sheffield. I learnt that local Positive Money groups and alternative economics groups in universities get on very well and should combine forces as much as possible.
