"7 Deadly Sins: Capitalism's flat-earth problem and what to do about it."

Dr Eve Poole of Ashridge Business School


29th January 2014 at 6:05pm

St Mary-le-Bow Church


Market capitalism depends on 7 big ideas. Economists like to look scientific, so they tend to present these ideas as laws of nature. But even scientific truth is not this fixed, and the flat-earthers have moved on.


Dr Eve Poole of Ashridge Business School discussed the 7 assumptions that have served the market so well in the past which are now toxic to its future. She suggested ways we correct the system at a fundamental level, so that reforms to the system do not fail.


The event was chaired by James Corah, Deputy Head of Ethical and Responsible Investment at CCLA Investment Management.
