Jean-Paul Flintoff of the Sunday Times reviews Paul Grignon's film Money as Debt. The comments read just like an HPC thread!

Times Online: No hope for the planet unless we reform economy

I've asked it before, and I'm asking it again: can we ever hope to achieve a truly sustainable civilisation while our economy depends on endlessly recycling money as debt - and on constant growth, to repay the interest?
As this film (embedded) spells out, it's almost impossible for us to make a significant difference to environmental problems by installing solar panels or growing our own vegetables as long as we leave the debt-based money system unreformed.
