How To Speak Money
Saturday 16 May
They say that knowledge is power. Yet few of us have knowledge of the most powerful language of all – money. Join John Lanchester, bestselling author of Capital and Whoops! as he sets out to decode our global language and, in so doing, challenges the power that this knowledge gives to the economic elite. Learn about not only high-frequency trading and the World Bank, but also the secrets of the jargon, and often nonsense, that we are faced with.
How To Speak Money is part of A Literary Festival in a Weekend
Day 1: Human / Nature - It's Our World, We Want It Back!
Red in tooth and claw, nature doesn’t give in easily, and nor some do humans – meet writers who fight hard for their beliefs, battle against astounding odds and who equip others to stand their ground.
