Following the financial collapse, governments and international organisations promised that finance would be reined in. New regulation would prevent a repeat of the mistakes that precipitated the longest recession of the past century.

After five years of discussions, protests, lobbying and new rules, the Cambridge Society for Economic Pluralism asks whether what has been done at the UK and European level is enough. Has finance, with its enormous political and economic power managed to water down all the talk of financial reform that was so popular five years ago? Or has too much been done, so that these regulations will prevent a healthy long term economic recovery ?

Please Join our panel to discuss these issues. Entrance is free. Drinks Reception after the event.
