Private finance, global aid, and collapsing schools
October 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We’re teaming up with Common Weal as part of the Edinburgh World Justice Festival to run a session: Private finance, global aid & Edinburgh schools collapsing – a look into PFIs, PPPs & NPDs
17 Edinburgh schools shut down and their PFI contracts are costing the public a fortune. However, our governments haven’t just been pushing PFIs here but abroad too and developing countries are being pushed further into debt. Come find out about these issues, how a different economic system could deal with them and discuss what happens next.
