A journalist with wide experience and a prolific author – for example he is the author of "Britain for Sale" (Pub. Random House).

This is an informal workshop where we will discuss the financial crisis and look at some of the the terms that have emerged. For example what is a "haircut" in a financial context?

You don't have to be a financial wizard to benefit from this workshop. It's a great opportunity to learn a bit about financial terminology and how to translate them.

You are invited to send some suggestions and terminology questions in advance to Lorna Sandler at adept.lrs@btinternet.com or bring them along on the night.

Free for LRG members - but you need to register by clicking Eventbrite (no longer valid)
