Research Project FESSUD - Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development

Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development (FESSUD) is a five-year project, 2011 – 2016, under the European Commission 7th Framework Programme, which brings together economists and other social scientists to look at how financialisation - the increasing dominance of the financial system over other parts of the economy - has affected the performances of national economies and the global economy in the last 30 years. The following issues have been addressed:

  • the impact of financialisation on the achievement of specific economic, social, and environmental objectives;
  • the relationship between financialisation and the sustainability of the financial system, economic development and the environment;
  • the lessons to be drawn from the crisis about the nature and impact of financialisation;
  • the requisites for a financial system able to support a process of sustainable development, broadly conceived.
