Dear <<First Name>>,

The last time we wrote you, we said that although the Swiss Vollgeld-Initiative did not pass, thanks to that campaign the international money reform community now has a huge opportunity in front of us. We can build on the momentum that was created by Vollgeld-Initiative to reach everyday people who have been let down by our broken money system to demand change. We can come together as leaders of the movement to learn from our challenges and figure out how to win the next one. By providing smart solutions, we can develop deeper relationships with decision makers who are also doubting the legitimacy of the bank money system.

The IMMR Core Team has spent a lot of time over the past months thinking through how we do that best, and this issue of the IMMR newsletter compiles just a snapshot of information and opportunities of how you can be part of this. We hope that you will rise to the challenge!

Show up in person for money reform!

Nothing beats good old fashioned in-person organising and networking. There are two key opportunities over the next few months to meet other money reform activists in person and strategise ways to build our movement.

The American Monetary Institute (AMI) will host it's 14th Annual Money Reform Conference in Chicago, Illinois from 25-28 October. You find more info on it and can register for the AMI meeting here and the list of speakers here - among them Congressman Dennis Kucinich, Dr. Kaoru Yamaguchi and Professor Joseph Huber.

Just one month later, the German IMMR member organisation Monetative, will host it's annual conference on 24 November in Frankfurt in collaboration with the IMMR. The topic: "The future of money – 10 years after Lehman and Nakamoto". More information about the Monetative conference will be circulated soon on the IMMR homepage and in the next IMMR newsletter. For now save the date!

We have also created a new conference overview page on the IMMR website, where you'll find past and upcoming IMMR meetings and other international money reform conferences.

...Or show up online for money reform!

Lars discussed the value of money and making monetary reform apolitical through citizens dividend, based on his original research published here on the IMMR blog.

To stay up-to-date with upcoming opportunities to join a virtual IMMR discussion, be sure to follow our Facebook page where we will promote them. You can also drop us a line to pitch an idea for a webinar that you would like to host and organise! We would love to hear from you.

  • Michael Kumhof has released a new paper. In it he outlines design principles for ‘Central Bank Digital Currency’ (CBDC). His design principles are good for the central bank, but also for what we want: a just and stable money system. Check out Edgar Wortmann of Ons Geld's review of it on the IMMR blog.
  • The European Parliament has come out with a policy paper which provides an overview on virtual currencies and their implications for financial market regulations and monetary policy.
