There’s huge debate now about prosperity and the future of capitalism, following the crash and slow recovery. Eric Beinhocker, Executive Director, Institute for New Economic Thinking, Oxford University, builds on his previous work in the influential The Origin of Wealth – which advocated the need for economics to incorporate complexity theory and evolutionary thinking – to look at the nature of growth, how we measure prosperity and what this all means for our politics.

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with

triodos-bank
