    Join us on 22nd March at The Hospital Club, as we ask - should we ’Save the Consumer’?

    Our minds are flat - our mental depth is an illusion – so says leading UK Behavioural Economist Prof Nick Chater in his profound new work. Hear his decades of research, which reveal we do not have inner beliefs or values but generate them in the moment based on our past experiences.

    In our opaque globalised world, it’s hard to understand where our dollar actually goes. Understand how our London lives consumer choices links us to China’s central bank, Nigerian railroads and the oil fields of Iraq with Sky News broadcaster and financial expert Dharshini David.

    Find out why even when we denigrate consumerism we are often tightly within the grip of a consumer mindset. From everything who we choose to spend time with to our politics, Philosopher Julian Baggini puts us as consumers in context for us.

    We'll be at The Hospital Club, Covent Garden. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £15 and can be purchased here. Or why not become a member?
