The Continuing Threat of a Failed Financial System
The Continuing Threat of a Failed Financial and Banking System
How serious is the threat of current banking and finance systems to a stable, safe and secure future? Is there an easy fix, or is drastic reform needed? Is the state of the financial and banking sector so bad that it is driving us into real social and environmental danger? What do leading opinion makers and research offer as the way to respond?
Robert Howell returned from Canberra in 2014 where he worked part-time with the Australian Quaker Peace and Earthcare Committees. During his time in Australia he also helped establish the Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility. He gave two presentations to Auckland Fabians last year which are available on line.
This presentation will explore the literature and research on where we go by:
• Steve Keen
• James Robertson
• Ellen Brown
• Deidre Kent
• Martin Wolf
• Herman Daly
• Bernard Lietaer
• Joseph Stiglitz
Attendees are encouraged to read and consider Robert's 'How are we to live?' and'Wiring Diagram'.
