Grace Blakeley - Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation — in conversation with Osita Nwanevu — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 29, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this timely overview of the finance industry, Blakeley traces the causes of both the 2008 financial crisis and today’s combination of stagnant productivity, rising inequality, and increasing ecological damage, to the dominance of banking in the world’s wealthiest economies. Issuing an urgent call to action, Blakeley, economics editor at The New Statesman and a research fellow at the Institute of Public Policy Research, proposes radical suggestions for reform, such as abolishing low-level consumer debt, establishing a public cooperative pension system, and initiating international capital controls. Blakeley will be in conversation with Osita Nwanevu, a staff writer for The New Republic.
