On Public Banks

Mar 13, 2019, 10:46 AM

In this episode of the State of power podcast, we try to understand the role that public banks can play in building alternative finance and how they can be democratised, we hear about the case of Belfius bank in Belgium which is facing re-privatization pressures, and we explore the role that art and culture can play in helping people to understand finance. This episode is one of a series of three, drawn from discussions around an upcoming TNI publication, on how we can build “Public finance for the future we want” curated and edited by Satoko Kishimoto and Lavinia Steinfort.
