Does Economics Care about the Future c Alys Jones
Thu 08 November 2018,

Keynes famously said we’re all dead in the long run. We face major intergenerational problems, a housing crisis, automation of many traditional jobs, climate change, amongst many other issues – all of which will require long-term planning and delivery over many decades. How do we plan for the long-term beyond electoral cycles and annual business reporting? Is sustainable growth possible?

The panel, chaired by Margaret Heffernan, includes Mirabelle Muûls (Imperial College/London School of Economics), Aditi Sahni (Vivid Economics), Alex Teytelboym (University of Oxford), Kees Vendrik (Triodos Bank) and Dimitri Zenghelis (London School of Economics).
