This week’s issue was published in November 1997 and starts with an article about the extensive social security system of Denmark, and how it in recent years have been put under more pressure due to changes in demographics – changes which have continued to this day, and still provide major issues for politicians who need to find funding. This article is followed by news from Ireland where the Irish Banks Information Service had created two educational programmes: “Paymaster” and “Money-go-around”; this underpins, that then as now, one of the most efficient ways to prevent overindebtedness is to promote early education on how to handle a budget and one’s private economy.
In this issue you can also read about the “money advice and personal social change” in Sweden and “A Local Initiative” in Great Britain, the Aulanko Conference in Finland, Social Banking and much more.
Have a nice read! 😀
