Wednesday 7 – Saturday 10 November 2018
In association with
In our seventh Festival of Economics, programmed by Diane Coyle (University of Cambridge and Enlightenment Economics), economists and other experts from around the world debate with each other – and their audiences – some of the key economic questions of our time.
We support the Festival of Economics to foster further debate about our economic future. Now is the time to promote more alternative thinking around our economic and financial system. We can no longer measure success purely in terms of growth when our resources are finite – and we can work harder to create a global economy that works better for people and planet.
