Saturday 05 July 2014

This week we're pitching our tent at a festival in the financial centre of London. We’re playing host to discussions that cover the future of money, the growth of China, and what work itself will look like once we’ve automated out world.

Smari McCarthy and Leander Bindewald will discuss who has the power to create money – and how the answer is already changing. Professor Michael Pettis of Peking University in Beijing has a shot at convincing us China can handle a slow growth future. Profs Mariana Mazzucato and Michael Osborne explain the innovations that could change all our futures, and take a critical look at whether out governments are helping us get there. And comedian Simon Evans will give us the condensed tale of how oil has changed humanity.
