The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in London, United Kingdom

Talk with Joris Luyendijk

Dutch Centre

14 Apr 15

Engage with Dutch writer and journalist Joris Luyendijk. Luyendijk is a former Middle East correspondent and wrote an experimental Banking Blog for the Guardian newspaper, which looks at the world of finance from an anthropological perspective. For two years, Luyendijk plunged in the financial sector in the City of London. In his new book, called “Dit kan niet waar zijn” (Eng: “This cannot be true”), he tells about his experiences with insiders from the banking world. Are bankers monsters? Is greediness the problem? And more important: is it possible that another crisis will happen? Are the root causes of the 2008 crisis solved by now, or is the financial world still a time bomb in the heart of our society? Find out on Tuesday 14 April!
