We are pleased to announce the 3rd annual Positive Money conference. With our economy stagnating and our political leaders still not having a clue about what to do to change the course, a conference entitled “Modernising Money” might be the most insightful event to attend that will give clear vision of what exactly can be done to get us out of the debt crisis, to enable prosperity and to ensure (or at least move towards) social justice. We’re happy to let you know that from today you can register to secure your participation in it.
1) Positive Money Conference 2013 – Sat 26th January
On January 26th 2013 Positive Money will be hosting its 3rd Annual Conference. This exciting conference will be more interactive than ever before! It will be more about campaigning and action rather than knowledge. It will consist of a combination of lectures, participatory workshops and some short videos from selected high profile supporters. We are honored to include several outstanding keynote speakers, the details will follow soon. We have secured a great venue in the heart of London for this conference. Find out more.

2) Important words by one of the most important people in finance
After two years of campaign, our argument that the financial crisis was caused by the ability of banks to create money was vindicated by none other than the UK’s chief regulator. Nine days ago, Lord Adair Turner, chairman of the Financial Services Authority, said that:
“The financial crisis of 2007/08 occurred because we failed to constrain the private financial system’s creation of private credit and money.”
This is exactly what we’ve been saying since the beginning of Positive Money: that if we allow banks to create money effectively out of nothing, in the way that we’re doing at the moment, then sooner or later we’re going to end up with a financial crisis, debt crisis and the situation that we find ourselves in today.
But this, coming from a chairman of FSA, is the clearest explanation of what is going wrong with our current economic system that has ever come from one of the people who are in charge of regulating the system.
