The greatest financial crisis since the Wall Street crash of 1929 has been met by an unprecedented set of government actions to stem the tide of destruction. But is there also a coming sea change in economic theory and practice, as well as in politics, in the shift from a free market to intervention in the market? Is this the end of ‘capitalism as we know it? What are the power politics and prospects to achieve change? What are the alternatives to these catastrophically failed ideas behind the ‘neoliberal globalization’ and ‘corporate globalisation?
The Transnational Institute (TNI) panelists analyse the causes and consequences of the on-going global financial crisis and discuss its profound implications for a changed world order.
