Ben Dyson

Ben Dyson is co-author of Modernising Money: Why our monetary system is broken and how it can be fixed. He argues that a design flaw in the banking system, which allowsbanks to effectively create more than 97% of the money that our economy runs on, is responsible for the financial crisis, unaffordable housing and the government’s reliance on unsustainable credit-fuelled growth. The proposals were recently featured by the Financial Times. He is the founder of Positive Money, a campaign for a banking system that works for society and not against it. More information at
