10 Years Since the Financial Crisis: Transforming the Global Economy
The World Transformed

Add to calendar

In 2008, the world economy was rocked by the worst crisis since the Great Depression. The crisis exposed the irrationality, injustice, and unsustainability at the heart of global capitalism. And yet, a decade on, we still live with its fallout. Join the Shadow Chancellor and international guests to discuss what’s wrong with the whole structure of the global economy, and how a radical Labour government can lead the way in building a new international economic order that works for the many, not the few.
