Brunei Gallery, SOAS, University of London
Hosted by Research on Money and Finance Group : 

“… the samizdat of Greek debt” – The Guardian

Downloaded by millions of citizens in Greece and across Europe, ‘Debtocracy’ is spreading like wildfire.  The film seeks the causes of the debt crisis and proposes solutions – solutions hidden by the governments of Europe and the dominant media.  This is a unique opportunity to see the film, and to participate in a discussion with the filmmakers and other experts on the crisis.

– Aris Chatzistefanou, Director of Debtocracy
– Costas Lapavitsas, Professor of Economics, SOAS
– Andrew Burgin, Coalition of Resistance
Chaired by: Nick Dearden, Jubilee Debt Campaign

Entry will be on a first-come first-serve basis as space allows.  Entry is free, but the organisers will be asking for contributions to assist in covering the travel costs of the filmmakers.

Capitalist Crisis


Economists of the group Research on Money and Finance (RMF) at SOAS, University of London, coordinated by Professor Costas Lapavitsas, have produced a report on the current crisis titled “Eurozone Crisis: Beggar Thyself and Thy Neighbour?”.

The report claims that the current public debt crisis of peripheral Eurozone countries (Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain) is related to persistent German current account surpluses. RMF proposes either structural reform of European Monetary Union, or exit from the Eurozone.

The report is available at:
