VIDEO: Highlights from the Festival for New Economic Thinking
openDemocracy partnered with the first ever Festival for New Economic Thinking which took place in Edinburgh on 19-20 Oct 2017. The Festival brought together organisations and individuals from around the world to discuss how to advance economic thought and inspire change.
