Financialisation and the periodisation of capitalism
Tue 25 April 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
As the concept gains prominence within social sciences, debates arise about situating financialisation within the history of capitalism. Is financialisation a contingent product of the economic shifts of the 1970s and 1980s? Is it a long-run tendency of capitalism?
Join us for for a discussion about these issues with Prof. Photis Lysandrou (City University of London), Prof. Simon Mohun (Queen Mary University of London), and Prof. Jan Toporowski (SOAS). The speakers will introduce their different viewpoints and discuss some theoretical implications concerning the incorporation of contextual aspects with respect to space and time, based on questions prepared by the IIPPE Financialisation Working Group. A general Q&A session will follow. The event is open to everyone, and is chaired by Dr Ulrich Volz, head of the department of Economics at SOAS.
