Economics Virtual Twilight Lecture - The Globalisation of Finance: How big is too big?
We will look at how economic theory has traditionally understood the role of finance in the economy. Is it up to the task?
Full Event Details:
Our series of virtual twilight lectures are aimed at students currently studying at Level 3, to complement their studies and/or to provide an insight into studying a range of disciplines at degree level.
What do data tell us about the growth of the financial sector, both in the UK and globally, over the past decades? Is this rate of growth desirable? In this talk delivered by Jeff Powell we will investigate these questions, we will look at how economic theory has traditionally understood the role of finance in the economy. Is it up to the task? The case for pluralism in economics - that is, learning from different ways of thinking - will be highlighted.
