The Nature of Money (the Forum)

11 January 2017, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

What is money, where does it come from, and why does it sometimes fail to make us better off? The banality of money makes it appear neutral with respect to political, religious, or moral values. Should we try to answer these questions in a value-neutral way, or does money shelter a value system hiding in plain sight?

Susan Steed, Co-founder and former Director of the Brixton Pound; Visiting Tutor, New College for the Humanities; Doctoral Researcher, University of Bristol
