On 23rd May the Centre for Global Studies hosts a symposium on the theme of how we can reconcile market economics with morality. Each session will involve presentations on the subject from two or more experts, opening out into a roundtable discussion. To start, Robert Skidelsky, Perry Anderson and Robert Frank will start by looking at concepts of want and satiability – does our culture encourage insatiability and what can we do? Next, Steven Lukes and Glen Newey will look at the connections with equality and corruption. After lunch Edward Skidelsky and John Millbank will examine whether there are moral limits to markets, and finally Felix Martin, Geoffrey Hosking and David Graeber will talk about the meaning of money.
