Enough is enough? Transformational economics for a fairer society
Monday 1 October, 1930 – 2030, The Palace Hotel, Director’s Suite – open to the public, all welcome
Our economic model is being challenged with the crises of the world financial system, rising debt and unbridled resource consumption. Meanwhile the gap between rich and poor widens. What does a sustainable economy look like? Could a minimum living wage, a maximum wage, and a shorter working week deliver fairness and wellbeing? What other changes could be made to the structure of the economy to redress the balance?
