7 September 2017: ’10 Days After the Crash’ a week of events being held next week in London mark 10 years since the fall of Northern Rock in Sept 2007 and provides the opportunity to discuss lessons learnt (or not) in more detail.
The IPPR’s interim Commission on Economic Justice report, on 6 September, says Britain’s economic model is unfit for the 2020s, and Britain stands at a watershed moment where we have to make fundamental choices about the sort of economy we need.
Promoting Economic Pluralism (PEP), www.economicpluralism.org, a pressure group working to promote innovation in economic thinking, believes the economic lessons of the Crash haven’t been learnt and we need to build a movement to create a fairer, more sustainable and resilient economic system.
It has joined with other groups: the Royal Society of Arts, New Economics Foundation, Positive Money and Rethinking Economics, and others to organise a series of events Sept 11-18 entitled ’10 Years After the Crash’.
- Alistair Darling looks back on the crisis
- The people’s state: citizen’s wealth funds and the inequality crisis
- 10 years after the Crash: Have the banks regained public trust
- Robert Peston on Breaking the Northern Rock Story,
