Chair

Professor Camille Landais

Robert Skidelsky's new book, Money and Government: A Challenge to Mainstream Economics, which he will discuss in this lecture, is a major challenge to economic orthodoxy, contesting the dominant view that money and government should play only a minor role in economic life and emboldening the next generation to break free from their conceptual prisons.

Robert Skidelsky is Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. His three volume biography of John Maynard Keynes (1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes. He was made a life peer in 1991, and a Fellow of the British Academy in 1994.

Camille Landais is Professor of Economics at LSE, Co-Editor, Journal of Public Economics and Director, CEPR Public Economics Program.
