Dear <<First Name>>,

last Saturday we had a very successful international conference on "The Future of Money" in Frankfurt with leading experts and money reformers from around the world. More info on the conference and documenting material/videos will follow in the next newsletter.
Soon we will also determine the date of the next IMMR meeting which will take place in Madrid, Spain in spring 2019.

Discussion on Digital Cash takes off

In recent weeks there have been many interesting publications on digital cash and central bank digital currencies (CBDC). The following list shows the most important recent articles and news:
  • Christine Lagarde, IMF Managing Director held a speech at the Singapore Fintech Festival entitled "Winds of Change: The Case for New Digital Currency" in which she endorses the potential of a CBDC.
  • One of the biggest names in contemporary economics, Nouriel Roubini, has written an article in the Guardian in which he expresses support for a CBDC as a means of positively transforming the financial system.
  • Sweden’s central bank, the Riksbank, has published a new report for the next stage of its ‘e-Krona’ project exploring the potential benefits, which include making the payments system more resilient, promoting competition in the payments market and improving financial inclusion.
  • Also the Central Bank of Iceland has published a report on the advantages and disadvantages of the issuance of CBDC, a "rafkróna".
  • Prof. Joseph Huber has written a new paper "Digital Currency - Maintaining or Overcoming the Bankmoney Regime? Design principles that make the difference":
    "As it turns out, the devil is in the details. Whether the entire approach serves to maintain the bankmoney regime or whether it might really be the first step towards a gradual system change towards a sovereign money system depends on a number of design principles."

IMMR Fundraising

Our fundraising appeal in the last newsletter successfully brought in about 1000€ from 12 donors. We are very happy about this support that keeps us going, but to really make a difference, we need substantially more funding. So please support our cause and donate to us too.
