The excuse for severely neglecting my blog in the last months has been my master thesis on "Profit opportunities for the banking system due to deposit money creation and potentials of a sovereign money reform". If you are interested to read it, you can find it here.
As you might know, I am pretty involved in a German initiative to reform the money system so that only a public institution is in charge of all money creation instead of private banks (as they are at present) - the reform is called "sovereign money reform".
Therefore, my current interest is with money and I have written two articles on other platforms (in German though) criticising the contemporary monetary system:
- Blog: Postwachstumsgesellschaft: (K)eine nachhaltige Geldordnung
- Wirtschaftsdienst: Vollgeld und Full Reserve Banking: die Kritik auf dem Prüfstand – eine Replik
And there is a video on youtube of my presentation (in German) at the "2. Ergänzungsveranstaltung des Vereins für Socialpolitik" on the need for a sovereign money reform ("Die Vollgeldreform - warum wir eine neue Geldordnung brauchen").
