Is it time for a new economics?
No discipline is more influential over public policy. Ten years on from the crash, reflective economists have accepted the need for fresh thinking, but it can be hard to move on from old theories. Indeed, the fierce arguments around Howard Reed’s provocative Prospect essay, “Creative Destruction,” revealed passionate arguments about whether or not the reboot has gone far enough.
Join Prospect’s Editor Tom Clark and a panel of experts to discuss what economics can teach us, and what it still has to learn.
Currently confirmed speakers include:
– Chris Giles, economics editor for the Financial Times
– Kate Raworth, Senior Visiting Research Associate, at the Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University
– Howard Reed, director of the economic research consultancy Landman Economics
– Professor Oriana Bandiera, Professor of Economics and the Director of the Suntory and Toyota Centre for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD) at the London School of Economics
