What Sort Of Economy For Our Future?

On Wednesday 18th September we will be hosting the second in our series of Greenlight events, with invited guests discussing the big issues of the day.

The British Government and the Opposition both seem to have no idea how to get out of this economic depression. One suggests austerity, hitting the poorest hardest and throwing millions into unemployment as the economy nosedives. The other suggests almost the same policies, but cutting a little slower.

Are there better ideas for tackling this economic slump? Would independence give Scotland special opportunities to develop a fairer economy?

Tim Jenkins from the new economics foundation will discuss some of the ideas which nef has been developing, about how to move to a better, more sustainable economic model.

The event will be taking place in Summerhall’s Dissecting Room, 1 Summerhall, Edinburgh, EH9 1PL (at the east end of The Meadows) on Wednesday 18th September. Doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start, and there is a bar and free snacks available in an adjoining room. The event will be free, but we would appreciate a small donation on the night to cover costs. There’s no need to book, just turn up!
