The crises of neoliberalism
6 November 2019, 18:00 to 19:30 Please note: this event has passed
Bush House North East Wing, Strand Campus, London
Speaker: Professor Alfredo Saad Filho (King’s College London)
The global economy is mired in crisis: the deepest economic collapse since the Great Depression has been followed by a ‘Great Stagnation’ with no end in sight. In rapid sequence, democracies around the world started to succumb to a wave of authoritarianism without precedent in the postwar era.
Alfredo presents a review of the causes, severity and implications of the overlapping crises of global politics and the global economy. He will discuss their implications for developing countries in various regions and suggest strategies to support democratic and distributive economic policies.
