Rethinking Capitalism

12 October 2016 17:00–19:00

Jubilee Lecture Theatre
University of Sussex

Western capitalism is in crisis. For decades investment has been falling, inequality has risen dramatically and climate change poses increasing risks to future prosperity. Economic policy has neither reformed the financial system nor restored stable growth.

Rethinking Capitalism offers radical new ideas on how to tackle these pressing problems, and most of all challenges mainstream economics that has stifled progress.
