Banking and Money Reform Conference – Aishling Hotel, Dublin - 29th April 2016
economics and finance |
Wednesday April 13, 2016 23:25 by Gerry - Public Banking Alliance
with Prof Richard Werner.
Prof Werner is the authority in the area of Public/Community Banking and also has an unrivalled understanding of the real forces controlling/manipulating economies worldwide.
Please allow me to bring the Banking and Money Reform Conference and the Public Banking project to your attention.
The Public Banking Forum of Ireland (PBFI) and the Public Banking Alliance (PBA) are working to introduce Community Public Banks to Ireland. Much progress has been made. We have learned that the Public Banking Project has been introduced into the Programme for Government discussions by the Independent TD’s.
The establishment of a community public banking network here in Ireland is essential. A banking system with the objectives of supporting SMEs who provide over 70% of all jobs, strengthening communities, supporting families and providing safety for deposits. Also to drive our indigenous economy and create a platform for rural revival.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all who attend to acquire a full understanding of the potential the community banking project offers to the Irish people and the Irish economy.
The PBFI and the PBA are pleased to announce the ‘Banking and Money Reform Conference’ on the 29 April, at the Aisling Hotel, Dublin.
The main speaker will be Prof Richard Werner, an advocate of Community Banking. He leads the group ‘Local First’ in Hampshire UK who are setting up a Community Bank there. It is planned to open this year.
We will also have a submission from Ben Dyson of Positive Money UK on the day. http://positivemoney.org/
Full details on the conference below.
Community Bank Project:
The Public Banking Forum of Ireland (PBFI) was setup in 2013 to introduce to the debate the concept of Public Banking. It has since developed into a national campaign to introduce Community Public Banks. Prior to Election 2016 we setup the Public Banking Alliance (PBA) as a platform for all to support the project. Various forms of Public Banking are now being promoted by many of the political parties including, SF, Social Democrats, The Green Party, AAA-PBP, members of the Independents Alliance and other Independents. We also have received messages of support from individuals within FG & FF.
Germany has nearly 70% Community Public Banks; 42% Public Savings Banks (Sparkassen) and 26% Co-op Banks. Their support of small Businesses and the Farming within their regions is the backbone of the successful German economy. 86% of German businesses have a turnover of less than one million Euro p.a. The PBFI & PBA are working to introduce a similar system to the Sparkassen to Ireland to support SME’s and communities, drive our indigenous economy and create a platform for rural revival.
