Seamus Maye describes how cartels and corpocracy put him out of business but he’s fighting back and proposes a better way of supporting small to medium indigenous companies to create a more prosperous secure economy - if only the government would remove the barriers. Seamus Maye is founder of International Small Business Alliance, Joint Chair of the Public Banking Forum of Ireland and a long-time member of Transparency International Ireland. Seamus Maye is highly respected for his work in competition law, banking and white-collar crime. He has addressed international audiences and both Irish government and E.U. committees. Seamus proposes an urgent need for a new banking system in Ireland that serves the public interest, inspired by the German Sparkasse model that involves a network of regional public banks combined with credit unions and post offices. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
