It has been 10 years after the financial crash of 2007-8 and the dysfunction of our banking system is finally under scrutiny. A recent event for Positive Money on 18th September 2017 saw 200 people gather at the RSA (Royal Society of Arts) to watch a panel do just that. Asking whether ‘a reformed financial system can solve the world’s biggest problems’ were Martin Wolf, Ed Balls and Fran Boait, in a panel debate chaired by Emily Maitlis.
