LSE is screening the Sundance award-winning documentary THE FLAW on Monday 6th June at 8.30pm. THE FLAW tells the untold story of the financial credit bubble which caused the financial crash. With testimony from bankers, borrowers, brokers and some of the best economics brains in the world, the film challenges easy assumptions about this being simply a tale of greedy bankers and poor regulation. With the imaginative use of archive, harrowing personal stories and gripping graphics, the film shows how excessive income inequality in society leads to economic instability.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Professor Francesco Caselli, Director of Macroeconomics Program in the Centre for Economic Performance and Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics at LSE, Philip Coggan - the Buttonwood columnist of The Economist, David Sington, Director of The Flaw, and Professor Robert Wade - Professor of Political Economy and Development in the Department of International Development here at LSE.
