Paul Mason Book Event in Stratford E15

Paul Mason, the economics editor of BBC Newsnight who wrote the brilliant 'Live Working or Die Fighting', is launching the paperback edition of 'Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed' at 7pm at Stratford Circus, Theatre Square, London E15 on Thursday 7 May.

The event is organised by Newham Bookshop and tickets are a fiver.

Meltdown tells the story of the financial crisis that destroyed the West's investment banks, brought the global economy to its knees, and undermined three decades of neoliberal orthodoxy. Covering the credit crunch and its aftershocks from the economic front line, Mason explores the roots of the US and UK's financial hubris, documenting the real world causes and consequences from the Ford Factory, to Wall Street, to the City of London.

In response to the immense challenge now facing the existing economic system, he outlines an era of hyper-regulated capitalism that could emerge from the wreckage.

Support Newham's only independent bookshop and pop along. Tickets are on sale at Stratford Circus or are available on the night.
