Mighty OafA standard Richard Murphy response unfortunately. Starts a debate, and then attacks those that don't agree with him, effectively closing down the debate by stating definitively that alternate views to his show misunderstanding. His attitude to debating is woeful....

Barney RubbleSadly Richard Murphy initiated this debate but could bring not himself to respond or dispute any of the arguments made by Ben Dyson. Instead, he offers this rather poorly worded attack on Ben. Why start a debate only to end it like this. Concession of defeat?Richard Murphy: "What can I say barring t...

Vince RichardsonIt always amazes me the criticisms I hear about Positivemoney's policies.Often as not they just involve a misunderstanding of something PM has said,rather then what was actually said.I think this is just another example.Yes you can nitpick the odd point here and there,but generally the framework sta...

Stanley MulaikThe following is a piece I have written recently of an economic idea that allows for a well-mangaged monetary system, which I think Labour and Lib Dems would like to work with:MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) is not just the idea of printing money during deflations. (As far as I can tell, MMT and 'posi...

Stanley MulaikWhich is a shame, since having debt-free money should appeal to left-wingers who favor governmental spending on general welfare.But Democrats in the United States are almost as ignorant about their money system as the Teaparty Republicans.

Stanley MulaikDo I understand correctly that all newly created money in the British monetary system is based on debt based loans? In the United States deficit spending, although it borrows money from banks by selling securities to them, becomes effectively debt-free by the agreement between banks and Treasury t...

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.

sacicrIt would seem to me that banks could sue governments for creating debt free currency - because it would crowd out their credit creation, and if government went as far as introducing Positive Money's proposals fully,it would have a devastating effect on their enormous profits.They would definitely s...

Sanjay MittalTTIP might actually BENEFIT those of us campaigning for full reserve banking. Reason is that the existing or fractional reserve banking system cannot do without subsidies and state support. Witness the TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS of public money that had to be used to support that system over recent years....
