CITYPERC seminar: Financialisation after the pandemic, 9 Dec

Financialisation reinforced: The dual legacy of the covid pandemic.
CITYPERC online seminar, 9 December 2021, 17.30–19.00 GMT.

The City Political Economy Research Centre (CITYPERC) is running an online public seminar on the financial implications of covid-19.

How has Covid-19 affected the power of finance? New research by Photis Lysandrou argues that the pandemic has reinforced key aspects of financialisation, including the colonisation of the future and the perpetuation of a global core-periphery divide. Join CITYPERC to discuss these ideas and some of their policy implications, including a call for a global wealth tax.


  • Presenter: Photis Lysandrou (City, University of London)
  • Discussant: Mareike Beck (Kings College London)

The event is free and you can book to attend here. More information available on the event page.
