Modernising Money - Reading Group, London, Mon 25th Feb

Good news: First Positive Money reading group is starting in South London!

The purpose of this group is to study new book "Modernising Money, Why our monetary system is broken and how it can be fixed"

This book documents - in more detail than ever before - exactly how we could fix the monetary system for the benefit of business, society, and the environment. These proposals offer one of the few hopes of escaping from our current dysfunctional monetary system. In case you didn't get a copy yet, the book can be ordered here.

First meeting will be on Monday 25 Feb at 7.30pm.

The venue is Cafe Provencale, 2-6 Half Moon Lane, Herne Hill, London, SE24 9HU (which is just round the corner from the station and bus stops).

We'll be in the back room. It's a commercial establishment with food if you want to eat, but they are happy with us not taking food as long as several of us order a drink of some variety.

The book is now available direct from Positive Money in case you lack a copy.

Let's read chapters 1 & 2 to start with. That's 48 pages on 'A short history of money' and 'The current monetary system'. It's material with which most of people who follow Positive Money are probably at least partially familiar. We may slow down when we get to the later chapters on reform proposals.

From Croydon 468 bus takes 47 mins to Herne Hill.

From Sutton there's a direct train to Herne Hill takes 23 mins.

From North London, the First Capital Connect service and trains from Victoria run directly to Herne Hill.

Please do get in touch with any questions or concerns here in comments or via email: [masked]

    Have now read to the end...chapter 8 is quite hard work and bears a second or third reading. Chapter 9 does a very good job of helping anyone who doesn't have an accounting background grab hold of what the various steps set on in Ch 8 entail/signify.
