Currently the global financial system increases inequality, often fails to create decent jobs, undermines human rights, devastates the environment and is creating debt crises. The driving force behind all of these problems is that the institutions that control finance do not serve the majority of citizens across the globe.

We need a financial system that works for all and is democratically controlled.

The power imbalance within the financial system at present means that we see:

  • Profit being favoured over people
  • Private finance favoured over public finance
  • And debt favoured over development.

The only way to reverse this situation is to give greater power to people.
