qe-peopleUnconditional Basic income Europe and the QE for People Campaign Coalition are pleased to invite you to this high level event to discuss alternatives to the current Quantitative Easing programme in the Eurozone.

There are already indicators that QE is inflating asset price bubbles and therefore fueling wealth inequality. A rising number of economists and civil society organisations are calling for a new approach to quantitative easing and monetary policy. These policy alternatives are known as ‘QE for People’ and include financing EU investments or even distributing money to all citizens.

We look forward to your participation in this conversation on how the ECB can stimulate Eurozone economies throughout a QE for People.

Please forward this invitation to interested colleagues and partners working on related issues.

To reserve your space email conference@qe4people.eu with your name, surname, date of birth and ID/Passport number.

Deadline for registration is February 8th – space is limited.
