Money and Government: A Challenge to Mainstream Economics, 10:30am Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Lord Skidelsky FBA is the pre-eminent biographer of Keynes. Against the backdrop of punishing austerity agendas and the threat of financial collapse, Skidelsky contests the dominant view that money and government should play only a minor role in economic life and argues for a new way forward. By showing that much of economic is far from being the hard science it claims to be, the next generation of economists should be emboldened to break free and embrace Keynes’ ‘big idea’.
