Bank on Owen

I am supporting the campaign to have Robert Owen's image produced on a bank note. This would be a very interesting way of promoting the mutualisation of banks and the re-mutualisation of former building societies. You can sign the petition on this here. The year 2012 is the UNESCO year of co-operatives and I think it would be appropriate to have this marked on a banknote. Watch the video to find out just a little bit about Robert Owen and the Bank on Owen campaign. You can also read about the campaign from last Saturday's Herald.
