10 Years After The Crash Events
Charting the course of the anniversaries of major events on the Financial Crash timeline we're hosting events with our network. These events reflect on and discuss key issues in understanding what happened and how the economy can better serve society.
Together with our network organisations we've got some of the most influential economists, politicians, journalists and industry experts speaking at our events. A selection of forthcoming speakers are shown below, a full list is available via the link below them.
The Key Issues
The Financial Crash had impacts well beyond finance markets and government, here we look at the reasons it happened, what has happened since and the questions we face going forwardKey Issues Overview
Who Are We?
We are Promoting Economic Pluralism - a registered charity number 1178596 - working closely with this network of organisations. We have done this because we think the common issue in all the areas the different network members work is how we think about and organise the economy. We believe that by coming together and facilitating diverse and innovative economic thinking we can develop a coherent approach to designing a fairer, more sustainable and resilient economic system.
Get Involved with driving reform
Please do not leave this to the experts. It is too important for that. Come along and discuss these issues. We also need your financial support to involve as wide a cross-section of the UK population to make this a truly inclusive process. So please donate as much as possible to sponsor those less able to afford involvement.
Our network of organisations have been developing thinking on how the economic system should be reformed since and prior to the Crash. They work on issues of finance, taxation, equality, good work, sustainability, housing and more. All of them have focused a particular part of economic policy, its affects on people and the planet and how its should be reformed. But all are linked by a joint interest in how economic systems can be reformed to create a fairer, more sustainable and resilient economy.See all our network
