Liberalism had a tough last year. As globalisation stagnated—nationalism, and even authoritarianism, thrived. Much of this was at odds with even the most basic of economic theories, which, put eloquently, came as a slap in the face to most economists.
With this conference, we celebrate the conviction that these recently built barriers should be broken. Through highlighting thought leaders and sharing ideas, we also want to inspire the next generation of economists and politicians so they can soon succeed where their contemporaries failed: bridging the gap to the layman.
This is why the theme’s second purpose is to break generational barriers. Hence, in an original effort, we chose select students to deliver keynote addresses alongside our established guest speakers.
WHAT IS BEHAVIOURAL ECONOMICS?
Our workshops include "How to tell lies from truth" and "How to influence people".
