Local Money Multiplier (LM3)

  1. 1. Local Money Multiplier And why local businesses matter far more than you think Source: The Money Trail>>> £ £ £
  2. 2. The local multiplier effect • Looks at the impact of money that is spent and re-spent within a local economy • Demonstrates that the more money circulates a local economy, the stronger that economy is in terms of jobs, wealth and wellbeing • Both the New Economics Foundation and the Centre for Local Economic Studies have worked with local communities and public agencies to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach £ £ £ £ £ Local economy
  3. 3. Practical example: Comparison between hotels and B&Bs located in Tayside • This compares not just the initial income from hotels and B&B’s but what happens after: – How the money is re-spent and how much of it stays in a locality vs how much leaves – It then adds up both the initial income and the money re-spent over four rounds to give a total figure Initial income Re-spend over 4 rounds Total money spent
  4. 4. Tay hotels bring in 70% more income £100,000.00 £170,000.00 £- £20,000.00 £40,000.00 £60,000.00 £80,000.00 £100,000.00 £120,000.00 £140,000.00 £160,000.00 £180,000.00 Tay B&B's Hotels Initial Income A ‘no brainer’ isn’t it? Chain hotels have got to be good for Tay!
  5. 5. £(10,000.00) £10,000.00 £30,000.00 £50,000.00 £70,000.00 £90,000.00 £110,000.00 £130,000.00 £150,000.00 £170,000.00 Initial Income Re-spend 1 Re-spend 2 Re-spend 3 Re-spend 4 Re-spend 5 Hotels Initial income of 170,000 70% higher than for B&B’s Only 20% spent locally Monery spent and re-spent locally is looked at over 5 cycles+ initial income Total money spend and re-spent comes to £235,875 But actually most of this money goes straight out to Head Offices and external suppliers. Only 20% of that initial income is re- spent in Tay
  6. 6. £100,000.00 £80,000.00 £40,000.00 £20,000.00 £10,000.00 £5,000.00 £(10,000.00) £10,000.00 £30,000.00 £50,000.00 £70,000.00 £90,000.00 £110,000.00 £130,000.00 £150,000.00 £170,000.00 Initial Income Re-spend 1 Re-spend 2 Re-spend 3 Re-spend 4 Re-spend 5 Tay B&B's Tay B&B’s re-spent 80% of Gross income on local staff, Linen, local produce and services Gross income/ Sales Half of 80,000 Cycle repeats Total money spend and re-spent comes to £255,000 While the local B&B’s bring in less initial income More of it is re-spent in the local economy – local staff, local suppliers and local owners spending their profits
  7. 7. The result is surprising £255,000 £235,875 Tay B&B's Hotels TotalsMore money stays and circulates in the local economy through Business generated by local B&B’s than hotels.
