Carolina Sundell

 (

Journalist, board member of Positiva Pengar and an advocate for monetary reform

Positiva Pengar (Positive Money) is the Swedish branch of International Movement for Monetary Reform. They promote the Sovereign Money reform in which all money—our means to pay—is created without debt by the central bank instead of as it is today, when money is created by the commercial banks in connection with a loan. Carolina believes that the current monetary system where banks are allowed to create money is dysfunctional. The banking sector’s profit-seeking intentions consequently leads to unsustainable economic growth and not an optimum money supply for the planet's ecosystems. Monetary reform advocates around the world are now demanding the state to take back control over the money production and urges the sovereign government to recapture the monetary prerogative.
