Money: Master or Servant?

Money: Master or Servant?
Wren Suite, Crypt of St Paul's Cathedral
28th October 2014, 6.30pm - 8.00pm

Money has come to play an inordinately important role in today's world, and the way in which we relate to it has far reaching repercussions that are not always self-evident. The allocation of money drives, intentionally and unintentionally, all aspects of society. How we create, use and live with money has gone beyond its utility function to have a long-term impact on the structure and fabric of society, affecting wealth distribution and inequality as well as debt burden around the world.

Three speakers will bring their theological, academic and practitioner perspectives to explore the ways in which we relate to money. They will discuss the extent to which this relationship needs to be changed, both by potential alterations to the financial system as well as changes in the behaviours of individuals, corporations and government institutions. How has the role and importance of money changed in recent years, and have we become slaves to it? If the nature of money today is problematic, then how can we restore it to a position of utility and productive service?

SPEAKERS:

The Rt Revd Dr Peter Selby - Former Bishop of Worcester, Author of An Idol Unmasked: A Faith Perspective on Money

Ben Dyson
- Founder of Positive Money

Dominic Johnson
- Chair of New City Initiative and CEO, Somerset Capital Management LLP

Chaired by Barbara Ridpath, Director of St Paul's Institute.
