10 years on since Northern Rock – How we nearly crashed the world!

Mon 25 Sept, 7.30pm, Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James St. S1 2EW

It´s been 10 long years since the financial crisis began. This public talk by Positive Money (Sheffield) will look back at the crisis and how things have changed, and will also discuss how reform of banking could help us avoid the next crash.

· Could it happen again?

Illustrated talk given by Richard Bruce, followed by an opportunity to discuss the issues raised.

This meetup is for everyone interested in how our money system works and how it could be changed to be constructive and socially beneficial. Come and feel free to invite your friends who might be interested too. Everyone is welcome.

Voluntary donations to cover costs (up to £5 depending on ability to pay).
