PJMJan, this is a URL for a factual report about hard physical evidence that shows that antarctic sea ice hasn't changed in 100 years, based on the actual logbooks of the famous British Antarctic explorers Scott and Shackleton: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sci...How about an apology for calling me a prop...

PJMI'm not sure that you understand that a Sovereign Money system is not a 100% reserve system. It is a no-reserve system, with all new money created by an independent (from politicians' influence) arm of the state....

Jan SealeyThat is fine, I don't agree with you, but I don't want to get into an argument about it here, I really don't see any point in it. However, If you think we should just focus on money reform, I think you should stop using this forum to post climate change denial propaganda. I won't call it scepticis...

Positive Money Newham at the Redbridge Green Fair

Positive Money Newham had a wonderful afternoon at the Redbridge Green Fair on Sunday 29th May. It was a great opportunity to engage directly with a diverse, local community of people who were very receptive to our message - namely that a change in the monetary system is fundamental if we are to restore fairness and stability to our economy and free ourselves from an excessive reliance on debt.

Money creation and sustainable development

In the previous blog posts we discussed why a new financial system is needed and what the alternative, a system in which the state is responsible for money creation, would look like. Also, the different ways were reviewed in which the newly created money is to be channelled into the economy. Distinction was made between expenditures by the state and those by business and citizens. To what extent, that is to say, in what proportions that happens is a political decision that stands apart from the issue of monetary creation. In other words, how to spend the benefits of public money creation is a political choice.

How pacifists may be funding the arms industry

Under the current monetary system customer deposits provide banks with a cheap source of central bank reserves, which are required to make the payments to other banks that may result from the issuing of loans. (Banks acquire central bank reserves (base money) when payments are made to their customers’ bank accounts.) However, despite helping to fund the loans, depositors have no say and little idea over the use of ‘their’ money. They may therefore be unwittingly helping to fund activities that they disagree with.

James GreysonCould be good for positive money to connect with policies on these related challenges? This NATO-published research connects policies for an ecological economy (#3), reversing the arms race (#4), and sovereign money (#7). http://blindspot.org.uk/seven-......
