Event description

Description

Bankers have faced a huge level of criticism since the 2007/08 Crash. Their reputations are in tatters while their bonuses have recovered. How do they live with themselves? Are they evil or are they too victims of the system? How would you feel about organisations where security guards marched out redundant employees? Frances Coppola, finance commentator and ex-bank manager, discusses 'The Secret Lives of Bankers' with Joris Luyendijk, the Dutch journalist, anthropologist and author of 'Swimming with Sharks: My Journey Into the World of the Bankers'.

Following discussion, there will be a wine reception.
