BUY-IN NOT BAILOUT - GLOBAL PUBLIC RESCUE

A financial meltdown is threatening economies around the world. We need to move fast and fix the underlying problems -- instead of copying the US bailouts, which benefit reckless financiers most.

Economists and citizens everywhere are raising their voices for a better way: a coordinated global rescue package -- investing in a better future, beginning with public buy-ins not bailouts (that's getting public stakes in the banks for our money, and the power to fix the wider system). We’ll deliver our call for a global public rescue at the end of this week to G7 finance ministers, and again to a bigger Global Summit planned for November -- please sign the petition below now:

 
To world leaders: As citizens, we call for a global public "buy-in" to tackle the financial meltdown, instead of a "bailout" of reckless bankers. We urge you to agree on a bold public rescue package without further delay - taking stakes in the banks, fixing failings, and mobilising public investment to benefit the many not the few.
