This debate between Ann Pettifor and James Rickards, author of The Road to Ruin, took place at the Royal Society of Surgeons, London, on 30th November, 2016. The future of the international financial system was at the core of the debate, with Pettifor contesting Rickards' view that "gold is money" and that the economy can be compared to a biological system. Instead, she asserted, the economy is man-made and can be remade. The debate is about an hour long  and can be viewed here.
