In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser interviews Ben Dyson of Positive Money about what the economy and banking system would look like with positive money - in the second half, from 12:34 min:
Who should have the power to create money? In Modernising Money we argue that the power to create money should be removed from the banks and transferred to a democratic, transparent, and accountable body. Martin Wolf recently backed these proposals, but Ann Pettifor describes them as 'deeply flawed' and 'outlandish'.
Liberating ourselves from the private credit model of money creation is a necessary first step on the path to a more just, sustainable society, writes Moly Scott Cato, Professor of Green Economics at Roehampton University in an article entitled "Bankers' Bonuses: Time to Withdraw Banks' Licence to Print Money" in the Huffington Post, 30th April 2014 Here are few highlights:
Financial Times has published the letter by Ben Dyson, founder of Positive Money, in response to Philip Booth's Comment from April 29th. Philip Booth argues that Martin Wolf’s proposal to “strip banks of their power to create money” (Comment, April 25) would "put this power in the hands of the “greedy or profligate” governments who have been responsible for many of the great inflations of the past."
Economics blogger Frances Coppola writes that "Martin Wolf proposes the death of banking", in response to his article last Friday advocating the Positive Money proposals for reform of the banking system.
