How to Save the World from Financialisation

Grace Blakeley (Tribune)

Date: Thursday, 13 February 2020
Time: 17.00-19.00
Place: University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW
Room: RS 352

Registration: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-to-save-the-world-from-financialisation-tickets-91752370811

We are at a critical juncture. The ‘recovery’ since the 2008 financial crisis has masked wage stagnation and the growth of precarious work, with political turmoil rife. In her debut book Grace Blakeley masterfully sets the historical record straight, dispels with jargon, and offers an inspiring way forward.

Stolen argues that the 2008 financial crisis was not just about poor regulation and greedy bankers. It was about the collapse of the entire status quo. Blakeley shows how every aspect of life has been redirected towards short-term, risky, profit-maximising goals that benefit the few. This has created vast pools of wealth hoarded by an elite which could be going to public investment and a Green New Deal.

Stolen unveils a bold agenda to transform our economy and society. Blakeley sets out a clear plan for a National Investment bank, a People’s Asset Manager, Debt Refinancing, the elimination of tax havens and measures to decarbonise our economy.

Stolen is an accessible guide to our recent economic and political history: the story of how finance capitalism has been allowed to steal our economies, our environment, and even the future itself, and how we can – and must – change course.
