Cambridge Seminar: Capitalism for the Kingdom



Are you worried that the state’s response to the credit crunch hasn’t yet led to real reform? Do you feel the church could be doing more to lead this conversation? Do you wish you knew enough to find your own voice in this debate?

Capitalism's Toxic Assumptions
Cambridge Ridley Hall Seminar Dr Eve Poole

A theologian who teaches in a business school, Eve Poole is on a mission to re-boot capitalism by taking it back to first principles.

Her book “Capitalism’s Toxic Assumptions” was published by Bloomsbury in March. Endorsed by the Chief Economist Andy Haldane and Res Publica’s Phillip Blond, it is the fruits of a doctorate in theology and capitalism supervised by Faith in Business’ Director, Richard Higginson.

The book starts from the premise that market capitalism depends on seven big ideas: competition, the ‘invisible hand’, utility, agency theory, pricing, shareholder value, and limited liability. These assumptions served capitalism well in the past, but over the years they have become toxic, and are slowly killing the system as a whole. Government efforts at reform seem to have stalled. But quiet action by consumers, investors, employees and employers can make the big changes we urgently need, by shifting behaviours and adjusting the way financial ‘votes’ are cast in the market. And the Christian community is perfectly placed to lead this revolution.

Eve will be joined by 3 learned interlocutors:

• Sir Roger Gifford, Country Head of Nordic bank SEB (past Lord Mayor of London)

• Dr Esther Reed, Associate Professor of Theological Ethics,University of Exeter, and Director, Network for Religion in Public Life

• Dr Michael Hodson, industrial economist and lecturer in social enterprise.

After summarizing her book, Eve will engage with each in turn to draw out particular themes, with plenty of time for discussion and questions.

Join us in Cambridge, make new friends and meet old ones, and go away stimulated and ready for action. We’ll send you on your way with a complimentary copy of the book.

COST: £65 per person : includes refreshments buffet lunch & a signed copy of the book.

Event: Escaping Short-Termism: Managing for the Long Term

Tuesday 13th October, 6.30pm
Crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral

There has been a consistent degree of attention placed on the need for cultural reform in the financial sector over recent years, and one of the key components of this reform is a shift away from short-term views of value, profit and success.

This seminar, organised as part of an ongoing joint programme on ethical culture between St Paul’s Institute and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, will explore how business models can operate more effectively and overcome the misjudgements often provided by short-term success horizons. Providing case studies of effective practice and the benefits of a long-term view not only to business and shareholders, but wider society as a whole.

Speakers include:

Laura Harrison – Director of People and Strategy, CIPD

Anders Bouvin – UK Chief Executive, Handelsbanken

Jane Fuller – Co-Director, Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation

Chaired by Barbara Ridpath – Director, St Paul’s Institute
