“Crisis Economics”

Following the enormous success of the first three Marshall Society Conferences, the fourth is set to be the highlight of the society’s academic calendar once again. Under the theme of “Crisis Economics” the Conference aims to provide a platform for subject specialists to discuss a broad range of issues, including the causes of the financial crisis, how policymakers should respond to economic downturns and whether economics itself is going through an academic crisis.

A wide range of engaging speakers from industry, central banks, and academia, discussing areas of economics such as:

  • The history of financial crises
  • Sustainable economic growth
  • The outlook for the UK economy
  • The next economic crisis
