Here are a couple of ideas for questions:
Since the financial crisis has caused the biggest recession since the great depression, don’t you think it might be time to reconsider whether fractional reserve banking is the best way to run an economy?
Why doesn’t the government and BoE use quantitative easing to spend money into the real economy and create jobs rather than spend it into financial markets?
