It gives us great pleasure to welcome world renowned economist Ellen Brown to Wales and to Cardiff University. Using her vast wealth of kowledge and expertise in this field, Ellen will give a presentation on the opportunities Wales has for establishing its own Public Bank - something that is being increasingly discussed in economic circles worldwide. Ellen will also talk about the precarious world economic situation in general, including the latest situation in the EU, the looming TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investement Partnership) and bank bail ins. There will be opportunities for a question and answer session at the end of Ellen's presentation.
Ellen Brown biog
Ellen Brown is the founder of the Public Banking Institute in the USA and the author of a dozen books and hundreds of articles. She developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In the best-selling Web of Debt, she turned those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money trust.” She showed how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back.
In The Public Bank Solution, the 2013 sequel, she traces the evolution of two banking models that have competed historically, public and private; and explores contemporary public banking systems globally.
