The protests at St Paul’s Cathedral have definitely raised the profile of the need to talk seriously about the future of capitalism. Does capitalism need reforming, replacing or is it fine just as it is? Join us as we debate the question of our generation.
The event will be a platform for informed debate around the financial and moral questions raised by recent protests and world events.
The ongoing protest at St Paul’s against economic inequality, social injustice and corporate greed.
