To launch the new issue of STIR our guests will discuss the alternatives and possible innovations to our financial system.
STIR’s 3rd issue ‘The Future of Money’ looks at the alternatives and possible innovations to our financial system.
In the issue philosopher activist Nina Power gives an account of money, campaigner Fran Boait describes Positive Money’s campaign to stop debt-led money creation, anthropologist Marianne Maeckelbergh looks at the influence of money on the Occupy movement, and Edd Baldry gives an illustrated how-to on creating your community currency. LETS founder Michael Linton and Les Moore introduce their new Open Money mobile currency, the New Economic Foundation’s David Boyle looks at the perils of Bitcoin, and we did a Q&A with author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance.
Joining us at Housmans for the launch will be David Boyle of the New Economics Foundation, and author of ‘Broke: Who Killed the Middle Classes?’ (Fourth Estate, 2013) alongside Brett Scott, a financial activist and author of ‘The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money’ (Pluto Press, 2013)
