Cafepolitique: Dangerous banks - can we tame them?

Tony Greenham, from the New Economics Foundation, will ask why the Government appears to have gone softly softly on financial reform compared to its more brutal approach in slimming down out public services.

Monday 28 May 2012, 19.00 - 21.00
Urban Caf?, Dance City, Temple Street, Newcastle, NE1 4BR

Caf? Politique events aim to generate discussion, debate and a convivial atmosphere. They seek to provide a space for people to think, share ideas and to have a lively and inclusive discussion. Each talk involves an interesting speaker or two who introduce their talk in an accessible and challenging way. We then open to the floor for comment and debate. We want to go beyond a rigid question and answer format, to allow broad participation. Our overall aim is to create an atmosphere where people can talk about the issues they feel passionately about and to open our minds to new ideas.

At this event Tony Greenham will discuss why Britain needs a functional banking system which effectively serves our society and explores what it would look like and how it should be regulated fairly.

This event is free and open to all and does not require booking. Please feel free to circulate this invite to your relevant networks or to those who may be interested in the event topic. For more information email
