IS THIS THE END FOR
YOU, ME AND CAPITALISM?

The world is in the grip of a global recession and it’s clear something systemic has failed. With governments forced to get their hands dirty, does this spell the end for freewheeling capitalism? Where does this leave the notion of individual responsibility at the heart of the free-market model?

Featuring:
GEORGE FRIEDMAN (USA)– founder and CEO of STRATFOR; ROSS GITTINS – Economics Editor of The Sydney Morning Herald; and, VIVIENNE BATH – Director of the Centre for Asian and Pacific Law, University of Sydney

JOHN TURIER will deliver the 2009 Artist’s Talk, discussing the confluence of waste, renewal and consumer culture in his recycled sculptures.
