Growing inequality, apocalyptic environmental damage, and the protracted effects of a global financial crisis have resulted in a discussion on the role of our financial system for the organization of society. At the same time, new technological developments are provoking much experimentation on new forms of money and banking. This course looks at various attempts to “re-imagine money and banking.” It explores opportunities for addressing big societal challenges and asks in particular how new forms of money and banking can contribute to developing more equal, resilient and sustainable societies. While taking an international perspective of these issues, this course also emphasizes current developments in the Nordics.
