Friday 6 September 2019, 6:30-8:00pm
Old Theatre, Old Building
Hosted by the Centre for Macroeconomics
The Nobel Prize winning economist and New York Times bestselling author Robert Shiller will talk on his new book which argues that looking at viral stories’ impact on the economy - an approach he coined as “narrative economics” - gives forecasters better tools for predicting a recession.
Robert J. Shiller is Sterling Professor of Economics, Department of Economics and Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, Yale University, and Professor of Finance and Fellow at the International Center for Finance, Yale School of Management.
Ricardo Reis (Chair) is the A W Phillips Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics.
