Future Money

Book information

Future Money explains how our money system is propelling us toward the self-destruction of our species – and what we should do about it.

Our present money system frustrates the well-meaning efforts of active citizens, NGOs and governments to deal with our present ills and problems – including worldwide poverty, environmental destruction, social injustice, economic inefficiency and political unrest and violence. Failure to reform the world’s money system urgently and radically could bring disaster for human civilisation before the end of this century.

Future Money shows clearly how our money system operates and how it could be reformed so that it acts for the benefit of people and society rather than the opposite, and describes the obstacles that currently prevent that reform.

The world’s financial experts and leaders in politics, government and business, and most mainstream academic and media commentators, have demonstrated that they are not yet able or willing to diagnose and treat the profound and pervasive problems that are directly caused by the money system.

Future Money speaks explicitly to active, independent-minded citizens with the hope that it will help them to understand why people today find it difficult to recognise the problem and grasp the nettle. It shows why we have to take the initiative now – and urgently – to get the issue on to mainstream agendas worldwide.
