Bank of Ideas: Beyond Capitalism.



A day of discussions of what an economically just future could look like. This is a chance to explore the world we want to live in, not just what we think we can change. The day will be divided into three themed sessions with panels of speakers presenting their ideas in 10-15 minute presentations to get us started followed by open debate.

The current schedule is:

11am Introduction
11:15-1pm: Session 1: Tax and Government
Richard Murphy (Tax Justice Network)
Gordon Kerr (Cobden Partners)
Robin Smith (Systemic Fiscal Reform)
1pm-1:30pm Lunch Break
1:30pm-2:00pm: Session 2: Money and Society
Ben Dyson (Positive Money)
Dada Jii (Progressive Utilization)
Peter Challen (Global Justice Movement)
2pm-2:15pm Tea Break
2:15pm-4pm: Session 3: Land, Commons and Cooperative Economics
Derek Wall (Green Party, Goldsmiths)

About Tent City University

Welcome to Tent City University @OccupyLondon! This is a space to learn, share knowledge and develop skills through a wide series of workshops, lectures, debates, films, games, praxis and action. As formal education becomes more and more commodified and inaccessible, here we have an opportunity to explore alternatives. Because between us we have all the resources we need. Anyone can teach, everyone can learn – and the two go hand in hand. Feel free to propose sessions, listen to new ideas and share with others what you know or want to know. Post eviction we remain committed to promoting collective wisdom and looking at how we use knowledge together. We’re now focusing on how we relocate TCU both conceptually and physically. We will focus on outreach and communication using teach outs and holding TCU events in many places. We will be surprising and unlikely, creating a database of places closed and open. Starting on the 17th of March, as a big teach out day. Please email suggestions to tentcityuniverity@gmail.com.
