UNITY magazine call for submissions: ‘Bad Banks – the Alternative’

UNITY journal, New Zealand’s Marxist journal for broad-left activsts, is seeking articles and shorter submissions for its December issue, on “Bad Banks – the Alternative”. The Bad Banks campaign is an initiative to connect the mass mood that something is drastically wrong with our financial system with an analysis which points clearly towards a post-market alternative. But what might this alternative look like? Green dollar schemes? Non-profit credit unions? A change in what “money” means altogether? How does this tie in with the broader capitalist system? And how can we get there from here? Articles of up to 3000 words are invited on the theme of “Bad Banks - the Alternative”. We are especially interested in articles on the experiences of bank employees (all care will be taken not to reveal the identity of any existing employees). Also, submissions of less than 1000 words on any topic are welcome for our “Feedback” pages. Please send all submission to daphne(a) Daphne Lawless Editor, UNITY journal
