The current monetary system still continues to fuel a social and economic crisis, and although the media coverage doesn’t give us much hope, there is a way out of it! We have spent the last couple of years researching the biggest flaws in the banking system. If you don’t feel like reading, watch our video that explains it concisely.
1) How can we escape from our current dysfunctional money system?
He presents the main principles of the reform proposals which are described in detail in our new book ‘Modernising Money’.
2) Modernising Money
The way money is created can be changed. Modernising Money explains, in more detail than ever before, exactly how. The book is detailed but accessible to non-economists.
3) Read the book? Write a review:
If you’ve already read the book, please consider also posting a quick review on Amazon. The more five and four star reviews, the more chance the book – and therefore also the Positive Money campaign – has to reach an even wider audience. Help spread the word – please write a review on amazon.co.uk and amazon.com. You can then also tell your friends and mention it on your blog or Facebook or Twitter…
4) Why doesn’t the media understand money?
Maybe you have asked this question to yourself… Watch what Patrick Chalmers, former Reuters journalist has to say.
5) Positive Money at Ethical Finance meeting in Scottish Parliament
Ben Dyson presented at the Ethical Finance meeting in the Scottish Parliament last week. You can read the report here.
6) News from Iceland
Ben Dyson has been invited to speak to the Economic & Trade Committee at the Icelandic Parliament and he will also be speaking to a number of activists, campaigners and economists there in March. If you are in Iceland and would like to know the timetable, just send us an email and we’ll send it to you.
7) Help Positive Money through Recycling
Positive Money is run on a small budget especially when compared to other campaigning groups. Therefore, we are looking for different ways to try and raise funds. There are new fundraising ways by recycling for charity and collecting postage stamps! Check it out.
