Economics as if people mattered

Following on from last week's Citizens Dividend cocktail, on Wednesday 27th July 2016, Critical Thinking is joining in with GlobalNet21 to discuss Economics As If People Mattered.  That the political economy is failing a growing number of humans on the planet is not in doubt. That it is on the verge of collapse is also obvious. The question is: What to we do about it?

Economics As If People Mattered (go to the Meetup page for more details and to register)
Join us at our next Conway Hall event on Ethics & Politics where we will be discussing  “Economics As If People Mattered” and will be held in collaboration with the Ethics Society at Conway Hall. Here we will consider whether the 21st Century needs a "new economics" for a sustainable future.

This event replaces our normal weekly Critical Thinking session; Please note the earlier start time of 6:30pm and that we will be in Conway Hall:

Citizens Dividend Cocktail


Join us for a Citizens Dividend Cocktail and discussion about sharing the wealth of the planet in the form of a Citizens Dividend. Brief presentations on the Commons, Usury, Arts and Culture in the context of a Citizens Dividend will be followed by discussion, in the round, of the three presentations. People often refer to Basic Income; the House of Commons discussion referred to an amount of £70 per week per adult - this is hardly the means to life. A Citizens Dividend from the wealth of the planet could provide the means to shelter, clothe and feed everyone, debt free without increasing income, sales or employment taxes; indeed they could even be reduced.

All are welcome. To sign up to attend, go to:
