The Financial Foundations of Capitalism
In her talk, Carolyn Sissoko will suggest that our current economic structure is post-capitalist. More importantly, she will argue that a careful history of capitalism can tell us what financial and legal infrastructure is necessary in order for a society to promote widely shared wealth.
The challenges then are political and environmental: Is there the political will to put this infrastructure into place on a global scale? And is it possible to design this infrastructure so that it does not worsen the climate crisis?
