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

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.
