Welcome to the FESSUD newsletter,
The annual FESSUD conference with the title of ‘Impacts of Financialisation on Society, Environment and Economy’ is being held in Lisbon 15th/16th October. Details of the conference and the call for papers are available here.
The FESSUD workshops on Causes and Consequences of the Financial Crisis held in Berlin 7th/8th May 2015 provided opportunity to present and discuss some of the research of Work Package 3. The workshop included the launch of the book The Demise of Finance-Dominated Capitalism edited by Eckhard Hein, Daniel Detzer and Nina Dodig (published by Edward Elgar) which is based on some of the work of Work Package 3.
Please consult the growing list of FESSUD working papers and of FESSUD Studies in Financial Systems as well as our new sections for FESSUD books and FESSUD articles in various books and journals – there is much going on!
For this newsletter, the work of Work Package 5 - Finance and well-being - is featured with insights on the preliminary results of the survey launched in this framework.
