The way I see it, there are three ways to get Banking Reform to happen faster, before the inevitable crash:
1. Education (This is why I make banking reform anÂ integralÂ part of my training company, Benedix, that is the world largest training company for students seeking careers in banking). We need a next generation of Bankers aware of what they are doing.
2. Politics (This is why I support Positive Money) TheÂ changeÂ we need in Banking can only be done at the government level. They are the ones that need to decide who has the ability to create money.
3. Business (This is why I founded BankToTheFuture.com) We need an alternative to Banking and I have been busy getting ready to launch a place where people can lend, loan, invest, raise funds and network bypassing the traditional banking system.
Having signed the contract with my publisher to write my latest book on the future of banking and the launch of my alternative non-bank ‘BankToTheFuture.com‘ Â around the corner, I have been on a bit of meeting frenzy.

So if there is one thing that history has shown us, it is that central banks are unable to stabilize our economies.
I mean think about it…
If your sole job was to make sure that our economy is stable and you had been responsible for the amount of instability our economies have had since the birth of the Bank Of England in 1694 by private banker William Patterson, would you still have a job?
Is it because central bankers are stupid?Simon Dixon Details
Many of you have been asking questions of my mission to reform banking… …So I thought I would address the main ones here… After reading between the lines of your questions and trying to get to what you are really asking, here is my summary… In plain English Simon Dixon, what banking reforms do you…Details
All you hear about today is… …Greedy bankers… …Evil Bankers… …Bankers that should go to prison… …More regulations… Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
