At Kupoli (Mannerheimintie 5 B, 7th floor). Doors open at 18:00, lecture starts at 18:15.
Why did the price of oil collapse? And why is the lower price not all good? And even more strangely: why would a rise in price also be bad? The presentation deals with an apparent paradox: both the decline and the rise of the price of oil are bad for global economy. We will also analyse who benefits and who suffers because of the low price, and discuss some "conspiracy theories" dealing with the question.

Disturbances is an open series of lectures and discussions at the crossroads of society, philosophy, history, economy and resistance. We are already aware that we can not live as before, but we do not know what the future holds. Others are stuck in the past, but we only want to understand it. Even a small disturbance of an initial condition can lead a system into a completely different state.
Our speakers are Finnish and international anti-authoritarian researchers and activists. All the lectures can be streamed live and afterwards from A-ryhmä's channel on Bambuser http://bambuser.com/channel/A-ryhma Events are organized by AutOp, a student group of the University of Helsinki. Our program is created by the participants themselves, if you want to join or simply get in contact, write firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children are welcome by default! We have now also a separate room from 6pm to 8pm in case children get tired of lecture.
