Department of Economics public lecture
Date: Monday 31 January 2011
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Paul Mason
As countries adopt competitive exit strategies from the global crisis Paul Mason surveys the political economy of a flat recovery. He argues that mainstream economics have still refused to draw the lessons of asset price bubbles and situates the divergent recovery, east and west, within a long-wave explanation of the crisis.
Paul Mason is the award-winning economics editor of BBC Newsnight, covering an agenda he describes as 'profit, people and planet' and author of the Idle Scrawl blog , which was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2009. His first book, Live Working or Die Fighting: How the Working Class Went Global, was longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award.
This event marks the publication of his latest book Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed.
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries email email@example.com or call 020 7955 6043.
