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.
