Articles have appeared in The Economist magazine and Foreign Affairs journal suggesting direct cash payments to people either by the government or Central Banks to jumpstart the economy. The UK Labor party has recently suggested the same. So have various US-based monetary reform groups. Please take the time to read one or more of the articles linked below.

About the Group:

The Monetary Literacy Group is a group of concerned citizens interested in the ongoing study and research of our monetary system.  We do book reviews, hold monthly discussions, attend conferences and try to teach others the importance of understanding our monetary system.

All are welcomed to join, we are a non-partisan group.  We like to explore alternative views and proposed reforms.  There is quite a bit of diversity in the group, and different ideas and views are welcomed.  Areas of discussion include Modern Monetary Theory, American Monetary Institute / Positive Money, Public Banking Institute, Complementary Currencies and the Austrian School of Thought.  Feel free to attend an upcoming meeting.  You'll be glad you did, and we would be happy to meet you.
