Contemporary Issues in Economics and Policy: Theories of Economic Growth and Crisis: Alternative Perspectives
Contemporary Issues in Economics and Policy: A New Seminar Series hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs
Seminar four - Theories of Economic Growth and Crisis: Alternative Perspectives
Venue: Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Tuesday, 19 December 5:00 pm to 7:00pm in G34
Alternative perspectives in economics generally treat crises as endogenous features of the economic system. Such perspectives include Austrian economics, complexity economics, feminist economics, institutional economics, Post-Keynesian economics and Marxist economics. These perspectives contrast with mainstream economics which generally treats crises as external ‘shocks’ to an otherwise stable economic equilibrium. In this presentation, Professor Andrew Brown (Professor of Economics and Political Economy at the University of Leeds) will cover the core conception of economic crisis found in alternative perspectives and bring out some essential policy conclusions.
This seminar, including time for subsequent questions, will take place in the London offices of HMRC on Tuesday 12th December and will be repeated at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Tuesday 19th December at 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Lecture Theatre G34
The series is designed to foster national debate, hence its parallel venues. Each seminar will be of interest to policymakers, business leaders, members of the public and, indeed, anyone concerned about the state of the present and the future.
