The other night, at the Occupy Wall Street “General Assembly”, I announced the formation of a new working group to examine alternatives to the current banking system.
The idea is to explore existing alternatives to mainstream high street banks (credit unions, cooperative banks etc), think about an ideal system, then try to set it up. No small ambition. But you’ve got to start somewhere.
At Zuccotti Park, I asked those interested to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if they wished to join. I am particularly keen to hear from those with experience of banks and the financial sector. So if readers are interested, please send me an email.
I expect the group’s work will mostly be virtual, as I for one cannot always be down at the park.
