Festival Of Economics: Economics In Crisis

This session turns the spotlight on the subject of economics itself. Economists will try to debate honestly the weaknesses as well as the strengths of the subject, and respond to some of the challenges from critics. What is the status of economic knowledge, and how much does the subject need to change because of the crisis?

Chair: Richard Marshall

Paul Ormerod, Volterra Partners, author of Positive Linking: How Networks and Incentives Can Revolutionise the World and Why Most Things Fail
