The CAP only benefits landowners, who don't have to be farmers, not the farmers wh...

New Report: Why State-Issued Money is Not Debt

Screenshot 2016-04-11 16.59.58

Positive Money advocates a shift away from the current ‘debt-based’ monetary system, in which almost all money is created by commercial banks when they make loans, to a ‘sovereign money’ system in which only the central bank is able to issue new money. In the past, we’ve described sovereign money as ‘debt-free money’, because it is spent into the economy without any household or firm taking on further debt.

Mervyn King’s New Book: The End of Alchemy

Mervyn King End of alchemy

Lord Mervyn King, who was Governor of the Bank of England from 2003-2013 has just released his new book, The End of Alchemy. The book is not a memoir of his time at the Bank of England; he comments that historians will be able to give a less biased view of his performance in that time, and that most biographies of this kind have been self-serving. Instead, it's his analysis of the problems with the current financial system.
