Newsletter - Financial Reforms April 2017

Dear reader,

This newsletter updates you about the discussions at the G20 Finance Ministers meeting in Baden-Baden, the final EU process in countering food speculation, and new attempts towards capital reforms. A special article by Kavaljit Singh of Madhyam, an NGO based in India, explains the efforts by the Indian government to expand speculative commodity derivatives trading. 

We are currently looking at ways of improving this newsletter, and we need your help. Please fill in this survey, your answers would help us a great deal! One of the things we are considering changing is the EU focus, and the guest article by Madhyam is the first step in this direction. 

Until next time,
The Financial Reforms Newsletter team.
