Positive Money : "Money in the bank, is it really there?"

Mon 28 Apr 2014, 7.30pm, Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James St. S1 2EW

Monthly talk by the Sheffield Group of Positive Money. Mike Black looks at some basics of the money system in the UK. What is the so-called 'money' in your bank account? And why do banks themselves deal in a special type of 'money' that the rest of us don't use?If you are relatively new to monetary reform, or struggling to understand how 97% of money is created by private banks, this is a good place to start. Positive Money is a movement to democratise money and banking so that it works for society, not against it. Mike has been a supporter of monetary reform for many years, and long before Positive Money started he was a member of the Bromsgrove Group out of which the James Gibb Stuart Trust was formed. He also helped to formulate the Positive Money draft legislation.Refreshments available from 7.15 - 50p, and they ask for a donation of £3 to cover costs.Positive Money Sheffield
