article imageOp-Ed: Two Positive Money meetings scheduled for December

By Alexander Baron     Nov 26, 2011 in World
Financial reformers Positive Money have two meetings scheduled before Christmas: the first meeting at Carmarthen, West Wales, and the fourth one in Belfast.
Details of the meetings can currently be found on the Positive Money events page.
The third Belfast meeting was October 26, at Whites Tavern; the next meeting is at the Belfast Occupy “Wall Street” camp. While these occupy people mean well, it is clear that only a tiny percentage of them understand what is actually wrong with the financial system. The usual proposals of increased taxation on “the rich” or even on the banks are not real solutions. Taxing the rich more would actually make the current economic malaise even worse because increased taxation reduces investment. Even taxing the banks doesn't help; there is a need for fundamental but simple changes to be made to the way new money is created, as Ben Dyson pointed out in his critique of the fantasy peddled by bankster Bob Diamond.
Check out the fifty minute video on the Positive Money website, (part 2 runs to a shade over 21 minutes) or some of the shorter videos uploaded by them and fellow travellers to to the YouTube website. And sign the petition for debt-free money.
