Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown

 

Why should ordinary people like you and I have to pay for a crisis that was caused by the banks?

Instead of cutting schools, hospitals and police on the streets, we can just CUT BENEFITS TO BANKERS.

Bankers on benefits?! Believe it or not, banks are the most heavily subsidised industry in the UK. They get subsidies up to £130bn each year, at our expense.

By removing these subsidies to an industry that has done so much damage, we can avoid further tax hikes and cuts in vital public services.

This three minute video explains everything:

About the One Good Cut Campaign

We've launched this campaign to show a wider audience that the current banking system is hugely harmful to society and the economy. It was the fundamental business model that banks used that got us into this crisis, and now ordinary people are paying for the clean-up operation. While public services are slashed as a consequence (hurting those on low incomes more than the rich), the big banks go back to business as usual, benefiting from a range of subsidies and benefits that most businesses could only dream of.

Of course the biggest subsidy is their licence to digitally 'print' hundreds of billions of pounds every single year, and pocket the interest on all this new money.

We'll be focussing on getting this campaign to as many people as possible over the next couple of months, and then we'll have a few more things to unveil for Positive Money.

It's going to be a big year in the campaign to get a banking system that works for society and not against it. Anything you can do to spread the word will be a massive help.

Thanks for your support,

Ben Curtis and Ben Dyson of Positive Money
