To raise funds to support the work of the Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies to shine a light on how money works in a modern economy

New stretch target

Any extra money raised would allow us to create a larger and more effective supporter network across the country and give us the opportunity to work with our European colleagues.  


The Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies was launched very successfully in early October. It has the support of leading MMT economists and forms part of a growing global network. It shines a light on how money works in a modern economy and challenges the household budget myths that form the basis of current public understanding. 

Following the launch of GIMMS and its website we are now planning our strategy for the future. Our primary aim is to raise public awareness of how a modern economy works.  Whilst the new website can play an important role in achieving this, we recognise that we also need to build a network of active supporters across the UK who can work locally to give people the tools with which they can get to grips with the basics of modern money reality  A first step in creating this network is to organise quarterly meetings at various venues across the UK with a view to creating local MMT hubs which can work independently to organise events and talks. To do this we need to raise funds for travel, venue hire and other associated expenses. 

We hope that the launch of GIMMS will prove to be an opportunity to start a real public conversation about how to create a society which puts public and social purpose at its heart but we can only do it with your help. Whatever you can donate every penny will help us to achieve our goals. 

Let's make 'Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies' happen
