Bring Back The Bradbury

Bradbury Pound LogoOn the 7th August 1914, in order to avoid a run on the banks, the Treasury issued Treasury Notes signed by John Bradbury - a form of national credit backed by the credit of the nation.

We require that the Treasury immediately restarts issuing such interest-free money, based upon the wealth, integrity and potential of our country. Such an initiative would completely remove the hold the banks have over the nation, and would kickstart a productive economy.

 

Life of Death?
<p>It is several months since we launched our campaign to &ldquo;Bring Back The Bradbury&rdquo; - the parallel currency issued interest free by the British Government just a few days before the onset of World War One.</p><p>While we recognise that the Bradbury Pound was used by the government of the day as a bail out mechanism for banks fearful that the onset of war would trigger a run on deposits, our argument is that its creation set an historical precendent not seen before or since - that government has the power to issue money based on the credit of the nation.</p>
