Ben Dyson of Positive Money on the problems caused by our debt-based monetary system and some of the solutions which offer a way out.
Positive Money is a not-for-profit research and campaign group who work to raise awareness of the connections between our current monetary and banking system and some of the biggest social, economic and environmental challenges that we face today.
In particular, Positive Money focus on the role of banks in creating the nation’s money supply through the accounting process they use when they make loans – an aspect of banking which is poorly understood. Positive Money believe these fundamental flaws are at the root of – or a major contributor to – problems of poverty, excessive debt, growing inequality and environmental degradation.
