1) Can you speak to groups and events about the need for reform? (Please reply if interested)
We’re aiming to train up around 50 people around the country to speak at the numerous events, conferences and meetups that are taking place this year. If you’d like to spread the word and speak to small/medium sized groups in your area or field, then we’ll be holding 3 one-day training events around the country:
- London, Saturday 10th March
- Leeds, Sat 7th April (provisional and subject to demand – please reply to let us know)
- Edinburgh, Sat 21st April
This requires a bit of a time commitment – there’ll be a reading list and certain videos to watch before the one-day training. The training day will focus on building your confidence to speak on this subject in public. You should factor in a few evenings of study beforehand.
Please reply to this email to express your initial interest in one of the events and dates above, and we’ll open registration next week.

2) New video – Steve Baker MP
Watch Steve Baker, Conservative MP for Wycombe and Co-founder of The Cobden Centre speaking about the money creation and presenting his views on various reform proposals:
“It’s like a tower of Babel out there on this subject… What’s great about Positive Money is that they’ve picked a practical proposal that can be taken forward and they’re singlemindedly pushing it. And it’s an idea capable of appealing to left and right, to greens, to libertarians. It is an idea that transcends party politics…it’s practical… It can cut through that power of Babel.”
3) A very big THANK YOU…
…to all 50+ people who made a donation after our last week’s email. Your donations have helped us to get to a more sustainable point when almost 50% of our funding now comes from individuals, making us much less dependent on getting the big trusts to understand the importance of reforming the monetary system. And of course, thanks to everyone who was already donating! This campaign wouldn’t be possible without you. If you didn’t catch the email and would like to help support our work over the next year, you can read more here.
