Paul Mason, Economics Editor of BBC’s Newsnight, will be speaking about his forthcoming book, Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed, at Stratford Circus.
Mason takes us on a journey from the trading floors of the New York and London stock exchange, to the meeting rooms of HBOS and Lehman Brothers and the minds of senior government officials. Meltdown explores the roots of the US and UK’s financial hubris, documenting the real-world causes and consequences, from the Ford factory, to Wall Street to the City of London.
Both, a trenchant critique of neo-liberalism and a response to the immense challenge now facing the existing economic system, Meltdown provides a definitive account of the meltdown of September and October 2008 and outlines a new era of hyper regulated capitalism that could emerge from the wreckage.
