A panel discussion with Daniel Mügge, Richard Murphy, Daniela Gabor and Nick Shaxson, moderated by Juliette Garside
We will hear from this expert panel about how another global financial crisis can be avoided, ten years after the first. Rather than focusing narrowly on the financial sector, this discussion will look at the role of the wider financial system, considering a range of factors including debt levels, the need for redistribution, and a 'race to the bottom' on tax and regulation.
Moderator: Juliette Garside is a financial correspondent at the Guardian, specialising in tax and offshore investigations. She has written about the Panama Papers, the Swiss Leaks exposé, and the the financial affairs of David Cameron's family.
Daniel Mügge is Professor of Political Arithmetic at the University of Amsterdam. He analyses the political economy of macroeconomic indicators and the political origins of the formulas through which we calculate them.
Richard Murphy is a chartered accountant and a political economist, an anti-poverty campaigner and a tax expert. He is Professor of Practice in International Political Economy at City University, London and Director of Tax Research UK. He is the author of a number of books, including The Joy of Tax.
Daniela Gabor is Professor of Economics and Macro-Finance at University of the West of England, and an expert on critical central banking, collateral intermediation, shadow banking, IMF, capital controls and transnational banking.
Nick Shaxson is a writer and investigative journalist, and author of Treasure Islands, a hugely influential book about the global financial system. In 2012 the International Tax Review named him as one of its “Global Tax 50” most influential people in international tax.
This event is part of 10 years after the crash, a series of events that are exploring how to build a fairer and more sustainable economic system.
