This event will take place in Koerner Hall at The Royal Conservatory of Music TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning, 273 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON.
Money has built society. As a technology for holding and exchanging value, money has evolved over millennia and is therefore fit-for-purpose. Money is the universal incentive-mechanism that holds society together like glue. But money is changing rapidly as the 21st century takes shape. This change introduces opportunities to reinvent currency and commerce at a foundational level. It offers new capabilities for the evolving role of banking in the consumer value-chain. It presents the promise of greater economic inclusion across the world. But this change also presents peril. It risks undermining centuries of great sacrifice to build the society we have today, imperfect as it is and always a work-in-progress. As such the importance of this topic begs a broad discussion across the public arena. This event seeks to host that conversation. The Future of Money is… now. 
Our 2024 event will courageously challenge existing global policy standards to better safeguard our financial system from collapse and our civilization from conflict with rogue superintelligence. We will cover three broad topic areas: (1) The future of money, open banking, digital currencies and payment modernization to preserve stability while rethinking the purpose of money in society. (2) The future of the international monetary system with central banks, global banks, fiscal policymakers as well as the high-stakes geopolitical contest of currencies. (3) Stewardship of beneficial and responsible artificial general intelligence as we respond to new and emerging forms of sentience that threaten to end the human dynasty.
Your ticket to this event includes access to the keynote panel & networking cocktail reception both at Koerner Hall. Use PROMO CODE FOM040424 to cover the full ticket price; a $15 processing fee still applies.
