Dear <<First Name>>,

another big money reform conference is coming up in Sweden and some interesting new reports and articles are out:

Swedish conference: "The e-krona and beyond"

On June 15th 2019 our Swedish member organization Positiva Pengar will organize an international conference on the "e-krona":
The Swedish Central Bank is the oldest central bank in the world and has for some time now been working on the plan to create an electronic central bank money. The E-Krona shall not only be accessible to banks but to all bank customers just like cash. Sweden could thus become a pioneer for the introduction of an electronic sovereign money. That is why, in cooperation with the IMMR, Positiva Pengar will organize a large scientific conference on the E-Krona in Stockholm. Speakers already include Steve Keen, Michael Kumhof, Miguel Fernandez Ordóñez and Joseph Huber. More info and the preliminary program can be found here.
The content of the conference is also based on the results of the recent successful Frankfurt conference on "The future of money" in November 2018.

Dutch government report on the monetary system

The Dutch Scientific Council for government policy (WRR) presented its report on the monetary system on the 17th of January 2019. The report is called “Money and Debt, the public role of banks”.
The main objective of the report is to describe in depth the role that banks play in the current monetary system and how money is created. The Council has to advise the government in regard to pros and cons of alternative systems and the amount of profit on money creation. So far the report is only in Dutch but an English translation should follow soon. More about the report can be read in this IMMR blogpost summary.
