Occupy Economics Working Group
The Economics Working Group Statement was adopted by consensus at an Occupy London General Assembly in 2011.
In 2012 the EWG produced The Little Book of Ideas.
The Occupy London GA has also adopted EWG recommendations on Banking, while members have produced various papers, helped organise protests against the financial system, and provided critical media commentary.
In 2015, Occupy London adopted the Plan for Co-operative Socialism. Promoting this to eventual implementation is the present main work of the EWG. See www.co-operativesocialism.org and the papers section at www.interestfreemoney.org for earlier discussion papers and documents.
The Economics Working Group usually meets on Mondays and Fridays, from 1700 to 2000 hrs (with a core time of 1800-1900 hrs) to “explore economic strategies for creating a fair and decent society” at Friends Meeting House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ – on the ground floor in the corridor outside the cafe. For confirmation of time and topic of next meeting, please email John on firstname.lastname@example.org
