The European Case: Financial Inclusion & The Prevention of the Next Financial Crisis | money money money | Scoop.it

Just a few days ago we celebrated the World Savings Day. But there are still many people who are excluded from the formal financial services and bank accounts. According to a newly made study by the MasterCard Foundation, the population of unbanked and underbanked totals 93 million people in Western Europe alone. And right now, only 31.9 percent of youth in Europe between the ages of 15 - 25 hold an account at formal financial institutions.

The Guide to Non-Fiat Money: Three Alternative Currencies Gaining Traction | Commodity HQ

The Guide to Non-Fiat Money: Three Alternative Currencies Gaining Traction | Commodity HQ | money money money | Scoop.it

With the peg of the Swiss franc to the euro came the death of national non-fiat currencies, as the franc was partly backed by gold. Though lawmakers and politicians are considering creating a wholly gold-backed franc, for the time being, all major national currencies are fiat money. Nothing more than paper assets that can be manipulated at will. The U.S. is one of the worst culprits of printing money and manipulating currency as our quantitative easing programs and bailouts have left us with a massive debt pile [for more news on fiat currencies subscribe to our free newsletter].
