new economics foundation
At nef we believe that the economic system should be reformed so as to deliver high levels of human well-being and an equitable distribution of income and wealth within natural environmental limits. The global financial crisis demonstrated the fragility of our financial system and exposed fundamental flaws. The banking system had long been failing to effectively serve society and the productive economy. Our work on financial reform seeks to identify what a finance sector that serves the real economy and society looks like, and how it can be regulated.

The B£ e-currency enables you to ‘Pay by Text’ in any business that accepts B£e, making payment in B£s simpler. By signing up for the B£e you will also get 10% extra spending power - so for every £10 you pay in, you will get B£e11 credited to your account. Pay by Text operates much like a mobile phone ‘pay as you go top-up’ system. Users need to open a B£e account on-line where they are able to transfer money or set-up a standing order to top-up credit into there account. Users will then have credit to pay by text at any of the businesses in the B£ e-currency.
