South Africa needs a non-usurious system that relies on the creation of money by the state, and not by private institutions

by Redge Nkosi  

“We seek to influence the reform of the current monetary policies so as to create an inclusive, sustainable and equitable economic system that is consistent with the objectives of the RDP (Reconstruction and Development Programme) that call for a “better life for all”.    In certain instances, Firstsource Money supports the call for radical policy regime change. We believe that there can never be a “better life for all” if we continue to pursue the current policies. As is now very clear, 21 years into our democratic dispensation, South Africa remains mired in all manner of challenges.

“The outcomes of our current policies are unambiguous : inequality (the worst in the world); unemployment (one of the highest in the world); and poverty (one of the worst). The current economic system is inherently anti-RDP and should thus give way to a debt free,.”
