Webseminar: Shrink Finance – for prosperity
The role that financial markets play in our economies has grown dramatically in the past 40 years. Ever since the deregulation of finance in the 1980s, financial markets have outgrown the real economy substantially and expanded into more and more areas of our society – with negative side-effects for people and businesses. Is it time to shrink global financial markets? And how would this work?
In this webseminar, we present new insights from a report on an oversized financial sector in Europe and its detrimental effects on the real economy and people in Europe.
Webseminar (in English) on Oversized Financial Markets | 15.12. | 18.00 – 19.00
We will hear from:
- Magdalena Senn (Finanzwende Recherche)
- Nicholas Shaxson (Journalist, author of The Finance Curse: How Global Finance Is Making Us All Poorer)
- Benoît Lallemand (Secretary General of Finance Watch)
