360 Lecture - Growth, Finance and InstitutionsMonday 12 Mar 2018
The Department of Economics in conjuction with the Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE) presents Andy Haldane.
Andy Haldane's talk will focus on whether the story of growth is about ideas or institutions? Andy will investigate why both, ideas and institutions both play a part but the role of institutions has probably been underplayed. This matters for the future where we may need (once again) to create a new set of institutions – some to enable, others to insure – to safeguard future growth in living standards and well-being. This event is being organised as part of our 360 Guest Lecture Series.
Date: Monday 23 April 2018, 5.15-6.15pm
Location: M1 Lecture Theatre, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick
