We can’t leave economics to Economists! Join Dr. Gail Bradbrook, activist and street school economist, for a down to earth discussion of our economic predicament and the possible solutions.
The dominant theory and practice is neoliberalism, it’s a choice. Yet the myths suggest that it is an emergent property, the economy just happens, so we have to accept it, policy makers can only twiddle at the edges. Street School Economics is about feeling empowered to talk about the failings of the current system. It shows how an economy works, the links between the key issues of debt, inequality and environmental depletion and how corruption and vested interest maintains the status quo. We will share ideas on how to talk about economics with other people, with practical examples of what has been tried.
