London Book Launch: The Econocracy: the perils of leaving economics to the experts

London School of Economics and Political Science

Room , Old Theatre
21 Nov 2016 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Rethinking Economics will be launching their book, The Econocracy: the perils of leaving economics to the experts in London on Monday 21 November in the LSE Old Theatre at 6.30. 

Join us for the eagerly anticipated launch of our new book The Econocracy: the perils of leaving economics to the experts at the Old Theatre at the London School of Economics just five minutes walk from Holborn and Temple tube stations and 10 minutes walk from Charing Cross.

We will begin by introducing the Econocracy and then handover to the RSA's Citizens' Economic Council and Economy, two really exciting projects that are actively addressing many of the problems we highlight in the book. Then Andy Haldane, Chief Economist at the Bank of England, and author of the foreword for The Econocracy will offer his reflections on the book and the challenge of democratising economics more broadly. 

Afterwards we will be going to the LSE Students' Union just across the road for a drink and it would be wonderful to see you there!

The Econocracy: Zach Ward-Perkins (author): 18.45-19.05 

Democratising Economics: Reema Patel (RSA) and Joe Richards (Economy): 19.05-19.25
