|Date||3rd December 2015|
|Time||5:30pm - 6:30pm|
|Venue||Room 150, ICMA Centre, Whiteknights|
Ever since the financial crisis of 2008, doubts have been raised about the future of capitalism. In his public lecture, Professor Larry Neal will examine some of the ways in which financial innovations responded to previous crises in early-modern Europe to increase trade and raise standards of living eventually.
This lecture is part of the international conference entitled ‘The war within: finance and morality in early-modern Europe’ (3-4 December 2015), an event funded by the ESRC.
Admission: Free, all welcome.
