Suddenly, quantitative easing for the people seems possible

Suddenly, quantitative easing for the people seems possible | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it
As some of the world’s top central bankers start to admit that standard quantitative easing is failing to generate growth, previously taboo ideas can be mentioned, including QE for the People, discussed here last week.

 

Interesting and provocative ideas from financial economist Anatole Kaletsky (author of "Capitalism 4.0"). Give the new money created by central banks to the people instead of the banksters.

Can disruptive policy create a sustainable finance system?

Can disruptive policy create a sustainable finance system? | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

"The ideas for creating a new and sustainable finance system are out there. If this thinking doesn't get greater exposure to policy makers and the media, the world of finance will remain a barrier to social and environmental progress."

 

Good analysis by Chris Hewett on the Open Democracy site.

Should Banks be Ethical, Sustainable and Boring?

Should Banks be Ethical, Sustainable and Boring? | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Ensuring that banks are boring may prove to be a key element of a new business model for the banking sector, enabling the sector to re-establish its ethical framework and focus financing on sustainability.

 

Good article on the future of banking and the financial sector in Forbes. Title is misleading in my view: what is boring about working for real value and the real economy?

Having boring associated with ethical and sustainable in same sentence creates, in my humble opinion, a link that I find not very sound, unless you'd find unethical and unsustainable exciting.
