Global Finance 101
Institute for Public Policy Research

Add to calendar

Ten years ago the activities of the banks almost brought the global economy down. What happened – and could it happen again? What have we learned about how the financial system works? And how can it be reformed so that it serves the rest of the economy? This session will examine the ‘financialisation’ of modern capitalism and how banks and finance companies operate, and discuss the policies which might enable greater democratic control of financial capital.
