The General Federation of Trade Unions and SOAS, University of London, in collaboration with the research network, EReNSEP, cordially invite you to an initial series of online seminars on the British economy.
Each seminar will consider critical, but overlooked, contemporary economic issues. These have to be discussed, if fresh policies are to be developed with trade union participation to achieve a new deal for working people, our communities and the environment.
The dominance of the finance sector and lack of investment in the productive economy have created a volatile and fragile environment. It is imperative to consider the latest thinking that could inject dynamism into productive activities, create good jobs, channel finance away from speculation, and achieve environmental targets.
Professor Costas Lapavitsas, Larry Elliott, Economics Editor Guardian, and Grace Blakely, Economics Editor, Tribune, will be among those contributing to this series.
It is hoped that the seminars would lead to new policy development for unions and community organisations.
The seminars will be held online on 13, 16, and 23 June, 7:00-8:30 pm.
