Yes, there is a Magic Money Tree

presenter: Peter Verity


Peter's talk was in two parts -

  • first, an explanation of the Positive Money campaign
    • where money comes from
    • why that's bad
    • what we should do about it (the Positive Money reforms)
  • then, a wider exploration of debt
    • the national debt - reframing the narrative as a 'national savings account'
    • public finances - taxation, spending, and borrowing. How these could be impacted by Sovereign Money creation 
    • the 'Magic Money Tree' - tax havens, deficit spending, public money creation


This was followed by about 30 minutes discussion.


The slides can be downloaded, in one of two formats
