It looks like our hard work is paying off.
We have established ourselves as leaders in the debate about the money system – making the argument that our current system, which gives the power to create money to profit-seeking banks, is failing to meet the needs of society.
Over the last year, a version of Sovereign Money Creation has been advocated by politicians, analysed in the mainstream media and championed by prominent economists.
A lot is going to unfold during 2016, we need to be ready to act
One big opportunity is the Bank of England bill, which will be making its way through Parliament early next year. The bill has been accused of attempting to water down banking regulation and is likely to spark a debate about the health of our financial sector. We need to influence this bill.
To do this, we want to get in touch with politicians up and down the country alerting them to the debate and asking them to support a Money Commission.
Fundamentally, we believe a commission is essential for educating politicians and policy makers. They need to know that private money creation lay at the heart of the last financial crisis. If we do not apply pressure, critical questions will go unasked.
To have the maximum impact, we need your help
We would like to launch the next phase of our campaign for a Money Commission at the beginning of the New Year. This requires setting up an “Email your MP” system, which will cost £2500.
At the moment we are not able to do this because our resources are constrained. With your help we will be able to launch an emailing campaign to make sure every politician knows about our campaign for a Money Commission.
