Positive Money at the Festival of the Common Weal

Festival Common Weal

"It's the banks you know, they create new money from nothing and distort the real economy". I realised at this point that I was shouting at the poor woman, only inches from her face. Passionate as I am about monetary reform it seldom gives me cause to raise my voice quite so much. The cause? A band playing in the next arch from us in the cavernous recesses of the Arches under Glasgow central station. They had a several hundred watts of PA system. We didn't.

Shirley WardellI'd love to hear your Positive Money joke. Maybe some songs too....

Positive Money at Glastonbury


“Well, who else is going to do it, if it’s not the banks?”, asks the man, in response to a suggestion that the power to create money might not be an appropriate function of a private, profit-making corporation. Well, a public, democratically-accountable institution might be a good place to start, I suggest. “But that’s what the Bank of England’s for isn’t it? Where the money’s printed.”
