Ten years on: rethinking money after the financial crisis

Wednesday 29 November 2017 | 18:00 – 20:30 | Central London

Wednesday 29 November 2017
18:00 – 20:30 GMT
Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre, 108 Stamford Street, London SE1 9NH

A major critique of post-financial crisis regulation is that it has failed to address deep-seated problems with the processes of money and credit creation and allocation in advanced economies. This event will propose alternatives to the current status quo, drawing on examples from the past, the present and also looking forward at the opportunities presented by the latest developments in digital technology.

The event is the culmination of research carried out over the past two years by researchers at Copenhagen Business School and the New Economics Foundation think tank as part of the project Monetary reform for the post-growth economy’ supported by the KR Foundation.
