The guys from Positive Money went to ask young people a few questions about money.
The first questions they asked were no-brainers. “Duh, everyone knows that.” But then they asked:
Do you know where money comes from?
Our money system hits young people the hardest. High house prices leave first time buyers struggling on the property ladder. Students are leaving higher education under ever increasing mountains of debt. Unemployment across Europe shot up after the financial crisis, and remains highest among young people.
The money system lies at the heart of all of these problems – and yet most people have no idea how money is created and the impact this has on society.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
