Challenging the Conventional View
Here are some of the slides I used in a presentation given at a talk at the RGS Guildford yesterday as part of their Speaker Day. It was a delight to head over to meet their team and talk to over 250 students from 15 schools. I looked at areas where the mainstream economics syllabus and textbooks barely give house room to emerging areas. Businesses have responded rapidly to the challenges and opportunities of the financial crisis but the bulk of the economics profession has been sluggish at best. That said there are plenty of economists out there who are challenging the orthodoxy and offering fresh perspectives on how consumers and businesses actually behave in markets in a world of complexity and uncertainty. I will be developing the presentation further over the coming weeks and will link to some of the economists mentioned in the presentation.
