The Future Economy: a conversation about today’s crises and tomorrow’s financial system

December 11, 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00

Free

Until a while ago, we took many things of our lifestyle for granted and thought it just required some minor adjustments in the foreseeable future. But science, economics and experts are telling us otherwise now.

Complaints about inequality and the gig economy… Clear links between climate change and economic activity… Major party candidates running on socialist platforms… Hit plays like Hamilton about monetary policy, and bestsellers like Capital and “luxury communism”… The capitalist underpinnings of the industrial economies have not been under so much scrutiny in decades. However, many can’t help but ask “why now?”

Are these just spoiled elites complaining about first world problems? Or are we on the brink of an economic revolution driven by artificial intelligence taking jobs; anti globalist demagogues raising protectionist walls; new opportunities enabled by Bitcoin; or the rise of functional command economies?

Join Long Now Barcelona in this conversation to wind down the year with some intellectual fireworks – and a money-back guarantee.
