We kicked off with a special one-off showing of the play Vultures: A Brief History of International Debt and its Consequences in which costumes, puppets and vultures are a plenty in this a creepy fairy tale which portrayed the functionings of the global debt system in a way that we have never seen before.

Then we handed over the stage to our guest Alan Cibils, Professor of Economics at the Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento, Buenos Aires who delivered a talk on Argentina’s external debt in recent history and growing state indebtedness under the current government.

Proceedings continued with what a lively debate from the floor.
