Bristol Festival of Ideas: Festival of Economics 2019

In the eighth installment of Festival of Economics, economists and experts from around the world will be debating with each other – and their audiences – some of the key economic questions of our time. The line-up for 2019 has been programmed by Diane Coyle (University of Cambridge and Enlightenment Economics) and features keynote speeches from: 

Mark Carney - Governor of the Bank of England 

Danielle Walker Palmour - Can we build and inclusive economy? 

Carl Frey - The Technology Trap 

... alongside many other fascinating talks, tackling issues such as the green economy, the role of social media and several opportunities to 'ask an economist.'
