2015 talk video
James Vaccaro is Head of Strategy at Triodos Bank. At Meaning he asked us to take a truly considered view of the role of money and finance in our lives.
It’s widely recognised that the financial system has not served us well in its current form. Efforts are still focused on regulating the banks solely to avoid another damaging crash. But is this level of reform ambitious enough? James doesn’t believe it is. He feels we are missing the opportunity to re-imagine the role that banks could play in creating a more sustainable society that promotes human wellbeing above profit. He proposes a fundamental rethink of how we see the purpose of banking.
