After the Financial Crisis: The Roles of Civil Society Associations in Growing a More Civil Economy
Author: Dr Karl Dayson, Community Finance Solutions, University of Salford
The freedom granted to the financial sector in the latter half of the 20th century has not delivered either prosperity for all or stability of the system. We now have a nation where both the people and the state are in debt, with no obvious means to pay it off. The credit crunch was as much of a moral and sociological failure as an economic and financial one. In this think piece, Dr Karl Dayson explores the role of civil society associations in growing a more civil economy for the 21st century.
