Financial malpractice, we’re told, is an aberration: the actions of a few bad apples deviating from the norms of a market-governed process and gaming the system.
Anastasia Nesvetailova and Ronen Palan will blow this fiction apart for you, showing that sabotage is not an anomaly, but part of the business model of finance – and always has been.
And how will the finance sector be likely to respond to the Covid-19 Crisis and government policy initiatives to support the economy? Is this going to be a rerun of 2008 for them? Come and join this discussion online.
The webinar will be designed to be highly interactive and engaging even if we can’t offer wine!
