You're invited to an event titled 'Serving Human Needs or Creating Money - What is an Economy for?'.
As our Government and many individuals struggle to overcome the problems of massive debt, austerity, and the associated recession, have you ever wondered why politicians and economists seem unable to fix our financial system?
Politicians and economists sometimes overlook basic questions – like ”Where does money come from?” and “Who creates and allocates it?” But these questions are fundamental to reforming a flawed financial system that causes the miseries of excess debt, higher taxes and house prices, unemployment and environmental degradation.
Positive Money believe that there is a simple solution to the debt-based financial crisis. One which isn't ten years of an austerity-driven recession but that can make our monetary system work to provide the vital financial services that society needs to prosper.
Come to the meeting and find out more.
