Reminiscing the financial crisis of 2008, and taking into account the current economic trouble, taxpayers usually take the blow. Yet, they have no means to check the power of the globalized financial market. Government bailouts have perpetuated the status-quo of the financial system, which is exclusively focused on growth. The time is right to question that very system and to move towards a financial market that’s serving society.
The webinar will start with a presentation by Ann Pettifor (political economist, author and public speaker) on the relationship between society and the financial market. This will be followed by a testimony of an ethical player in the financial sector, Triodos Bank, brought by Thomas Van Craen (Managing Director at Triodos Bank Belgium).
