The impact of recession is affecting us all: increasing amounts of debt, jobs lost, homes repossessed and businesses fail. The hardest thing to contemplate, is a way out from all of this mess...

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 (

When: Monday 22 April at 7.30pm

Where: 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.


We will be going through Chapter 4. Slight change of format: this time we will each be summarising a part of the chapter (even if only 1 page) for the rest of the group. Don't worry if that sounds daunting -- it's not a test but rather just trying to help each other remember what we have read in the preceding couple of weeks, and to each have a go at explaining (to a friendly, familiar, and encouraging audience) what we've read.

New people are always welcome, though will have some catching up to do on the reading.

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