Tony Greenham discusses the production of money, trust, and the rise of local banking
Ten years since the collapse of Lehman Brothers which triggered the global financial crisis and almost a decade into austerity, the UK is operating with very little change.
As part of the Moneytree Exhibition (13th - 19th September), join an evening with brilliant economist Tony Greenham who will be in conversation with artist Lara Luna Bartley exploring the production of money, the rise in local banking, and the role of art in interrogating the financial sysytem.
Tony Greenham has authored and co-authored many books and reports on economic reform including 'People Powered Prosperity: Ultra-local approaches to making poorer places wealthier', 'Stakeholder Banks: the benefits of banking diversity' and the best-selling economic textbook, 'Where Does Money Come From? A guide to the UK monetary and banking system'.
Tony was Director of Economy, Enterprise and Manufacturing at the Royal Society of Art (RSA) for many years and is now part of a team setting up South West Mutual - a regional co-operative bank with a mission to serve all people on equal terms and to focus on honest and transparent savings, loans and banking services for SMEs, community groups and households of ordinary means.
