NZ Banking Reform Group Started

Media Statement

Banking Reform group started

A new banking reform group, aiming to restore the government's sovereign right to create and issue the nation's currency, has been formed.

Spokesperson for NZ Banking Reform, Deirdre Kent, said the first meeting was held in Petone last week with 27 attending, and a decision to meet monthly, and grow the membership.

Early activities will be to visit the Reserve Bank asking them to explain the way banks currently create 98% of the country's money supply. "We want the Reserve Bank to shine the burning light of clarity into the banking system so that everyone can understand. We are told taxpayers own the Reserve Bank, so we want them to explain how money is multiplied through the banking system," she said.

Ms Kent said the group, NZ Banking Reform, also has an egroup discussion (NZ_Banking_Reform@egroups.com) going on the web, with forty members participating.

"As well as visiting the Reserve Bank, we plan to assemble data about the growing debt, the rapid growth in money supply and the current laws applying to money creation."

She said those present at the first meeting came from a variety of backgrounds including businesspeople, church people, academics, Greens and Democrats.

"We believe that money is a clever human invention which must be our servant, not our master." She said many were angry that some of our taxes are being used to pay the overseas owned banks for lending money to our government when the money could be issued interest free by Governments, as with notes and coins.

For further comment phone Deirdre Kent 04 802 4640 or 025 203 0821 or Finlay Thompson 380 0994 or 021 117 9149

Gordon Campbell: On Malaysia Exposing Our Dodgy Policies On China

Last week, we all owed a vote of thanks to Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad for breaking with protocol during his bilateral meeting in Singapore with New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern. Reportedly, Mahathir used the photo opportunity phase of the meeting – which usually involves just an exchange of smiles and pleasantries before the media is sent out of the room – to launch into matters of genuine substance.

By doing so, Mahathir usefully exposed how New Zealand is trying to make a virtue out of sitting on the fence over the South China Sea dispute. More>>
