Creating New Money
by Joseph Huber, James Robertson
Publisher: New Economics Foundation 2000
Number of pages: 107
In the information age, money has mainly become information, electronically stored and transmitted. Monetary policies that serve the public interest can no longer be founded on a smoke-and-mirrors fiction that "real money" lurks behind the information. The authors propose a simple reform, and spell out its practicalities step-by-step. The economic, social and environmental arguments for it are very strong. The public purse, private households and businesses will all benefit from it.
