Where does money come from, who creates it, and decides where to distribute it? Do politicians and economists mystify the system to prevent us from kicking back? Do you ever get this nagging feeling that if you could just understand how the economy works, you could figure out how to fight for a more equitable society? Is another financial crisis inevitable and what can we do about it? Are there any alternatives to our current system, and any evidence that they will work?
Positive Money will host an accessible, informal workshop-lecture-discussion, which will look at where money comes from, why this is a problem, and what we can do about it! No prior knowledge of the economy needed – but you will walk away from this session with some facts about the money and banking system which will blow your mind, and new tools to talk about the economy in a way that is simple but engaging, and seeks to challenge the system. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
