Catch Your Breath Exhibition

10:00am to 4:00pm, Dennyson Stoddart Gallery, Palace Green Library, Durham

Catch Your Breath is a new temporary exhibition exploring the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, literature and music, the exhibition combines new artist commissions with objects from the Durham University collections and beyond to discover new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing.

Modern Monetary Theory and Full Reserve Banking.

6:30pm to 8:30pm, Good Space, 2nd Floor, Commercial Union House, Pilgrim St, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Under the existing bank system, private banks are allowed to create money from thin air and lend it out. For decades many economists have opposed that practice. The bank system that bars that practice is called "full reserve". Modern Monetary Theory is a quite separate set of ideas: pretty similar to Keynes's ideas.

This is a small informal meeting: the room booked only holds about twelve, so there'll be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. If you want to attend, please notify the organisers by email or via Eventbrite.
