Viking Economics: a talk by George Lakey

9 October 2017, Edinburgh

A talk by George Lakey, American Quaker activist and author. George will speak about "A divided Britain: What can we learn from the Nordics?" His book Viking Economics has a provocative answer. George will take questions from the audience and there will be a discussion.

Free of charge. Open to all. No ticket required.

This talk is part of George Lakey's UK book tour.

Taking an entertaining look at the Nordic welfare state, showing us that we too can have a more equal and just economic system, George Lakey will talk about his book Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians got it right and how we can too.

“Viking Economics" helps us envision a different way of organising our economy to put people and the planet first. It tells a story of economic change and the foundations on which it was built at a time when it is so obvious that such narratives are so desperately needed in modern political discourse… if he is right, then the story he imparts has to be told, understood and acted upon."
