Are We Powerless?

Can protest have an impact on the world’s financial powers? Are we simply victims of the financial crisis? Or, given the benefits that the global economy has delivered for so many of us, are we too complicit in the system to equate ourselves with the valiant protestors of Peterloo? Ahead of The Masque of Anarchy at MIF13, economist and broadcaster Evan Davis was joined by Adam Curtis, Owen Jones and a panel of leading thinkers for a discussion of these issues, which incorporated a question-and-answer session with the audience.
