Carlijn Kingma gives a lecture on her work: Waterworks of Money. The world of big money seems far away for most people. But we notice its effects every day. Carlijn Kingma made a detailed map, bringing the workings of money into focus. During the festival both her representation of our money system now and three possible scenarios for the future can be seen.

Afterwards, Godelieve Spaas (Lecturer economics as a common good) will talk to Carlijn, co-creator and Martijn Van Der Linden (Lecturer New Finance at The Hague University of Applied Sciences) and Denise Harleman (founder of Collectief Kapitaal) about the question: Who Owns the money?

The richest man on earth, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, owns an estimated $111 billion. In Burundi, over 80 percent of the population lives on $1.25 a day. In the U.S., 43 million people live on $4 a day. If we divided all the world's cash and easily withdrawable money, 90,400,000,000,000. among 7.5 billion earth's inhabitants, everyone would get more than $12,000.

Good idea? Or is the current distribution better? What does that mean? What are the consequences of that distribution? What inequality is acceptable? And why? And could it be different? How then? And how do we get there?
