Must bankers be bad?

25 November, 2017, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Financial scandals are a regular part of life under twenty-first century capitalism—from Libor-fixing to subprime mortgages and Fred ‘the Shred’ Goodwin. But are they symptoms of a lost sense of morality, or just a few lost sheep? This panel discussion brings history and philosophy together with real-world experience, to find new ways of thinking about good and bad among the masters of money. What are the ethics that guide financial professionals, and how do individual motives fit within the enormous and impersonal structures of the global economy?

Panelists: Tom Cutterham (History), Emma Barrett (History), Yan Huo (Business School), and special guest!
