Major central banks start looking into money reform!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Over the past few weeks three central banks took steps towards money reform. Both the Dutch and the Icelandic central bank hosted private seminars on sovereign money and full-reserve banking system. Meanwhile, Sweden's central bank also announced publicly an ambitious move towards implementing a national digital version of cash, which could signal a transition towards sovereign money.

Politicians are becoming supportive too. The European Parliament just adopted a critical resolution on the European Central Bank, taking notice of the failure of quantitative easing. This paves the way for the future work of the QE for People campaign, which is supported by many of our IMMR member organisations.

These amazing developments are a sign that our efforts on the ground are paying off. Well done everyone!

To change money, campaigns need money!

Speaking of successful campaigns, the Swiss population will be the first in the world to vote on reforming the monetary system, thanks to the tireless efforts of our member Vollgeld-Initiative. An incredible amount of effort was required to get that far, and even more will be needed to win the referendum, especially now that the Government said it is opposed to democratizing money creation. 

To reach more citizens, Vollgeld-Initiative will launch a big campaigning tour in 2017 – in over 30 cities during the entire summer. They will even have a mascot – a gigantic 6 meter high and inflatable piggybank:

To make the tour happen, the Swiss campaign already collected 25,000 CHF through a crowdfunding call. However, the more money they collect the more impact they can have.

Regardless of the vote outcome, we know from past experience that Swiss referenda usually attract significant international media attention! We certainly do not want to miss this opportunity.

Can you make a donation to help the Swiss prepare a great campaign? You can do so using paypal or by making a direct bank transfer to:

Thank you from Vollgeld

Finally that leaves me to wish you a very happy Christmas!
