How has Covid-19 affected the power of finance? New research by Photis Lysandrou argues that the pandemic has reinforced key aspects of financialisation, including the colonisation of the future and the perpetuation of a global core-periphery divide. Join CITYPERC to discuss these ideas and some of their policy implications, including a call for a global wealth tax.
