PLRG Report and General Meeting Friday 31st May 2013

On behalf of the Professional Land Reform Group you are invited to a General Meeting of PLRG this Friday 31st May at 2.30pm. The venue is the School of Economic Science, 11 Mandeville Place (near Bond Street underground). As well as reporting on the past two years of PLRG activities, we will be planning the way forward. We are also looking for volunteers to help manage our website and mailing lists, also core funding to pay for essential expenses.

The current membership subscription is a 'suggested' £10 per year but that is one of the important matters to discuss this Friday. Meanwhile all those who have pledged to the video project are likely to be voted on as paid-up members of PLRG for the current year, in recognition of your contribution. If you have not yet pledged to this, it is not too late: there are only 2 days and £300 to go!

Here is a report on PLRG activities since May 2011.

Future Money: breakdown or breakthrough

James Robertson's new book Future Money: breakdown or breakthrough? appears just as the whole way we finance home-building and regeneration is under scrutiny. A series of 12 seminars in London looks at a "Commons-based Economy" much like Robertson's thinking.

"There can be few books more worthy of our time of crisis than this" says reviewer Dr Tony Vickers. "It sets out how reform of the money supply system links to reform of taxation "off income, profits, value added..." and onto "value subtracted ... for private profit from common resources..." and reform of public expenditure priorities, off "perverse subsidies" and instead into a "Citizens Dividend" that would replace welfare payments."
