Are We Powerless? Evan Davis

Can protest have an impact on the world’s financial powers? Are we simply victims of the financial crisis? Or, given the benefits that the global economy has delivered for so many of us, are we too complicit in the system to equate ourselves with the valiant protestors of Peterloo? Five years on from the crash, what demands should today’s many be making? Do we have the power to bring about change?

Economist and broadcaster Evan Davis chaired a panel of leading thinkers in their fields for a discussion of these issues, incorporating a question-and-answer session with the audience.

The panel:
Evan Davis (Chair)
Louise Cooper
Adam Curtis
Ismail Erturk
Owen Jones
Dr Judith Shapiro

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
