Event 302Venue: Starlight Stage

Creeping climatic upheaval and corrosive global inequality are like two threads pulling apart civilisation’s fabric. To survive and thrive, we face an unprecedented challenge of rapid transition. But the way we live is locked-in by an economic system, dominated by finance and obsessed with growth. Andrew Simms of the New Weather Institute discusses whether orthodox economics can effect change with Richard Murphy, the architect of Corbynomics, and Victoria Chick, one of the world’s leading authorities on Keynes.

See you there?

It's also a launch event for the paperback version of The Joy of Tax.
