Speaker(s): Dr Pippa Malmgren
Chair: Professor Michael Cox

Recorded on 19 September 2016 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Economics would be better served by complementing the backward looking approach inherent in algorithms, models and data with plain English, common sense and forward looking signals. Signals can help us identify trends as they unfold in the world economy, which data only confirm after it's too late to invest or to form a policy solution.
