Description

The Mint presents....

Avner Offer provides an innovative new approach to thinking about when markets are appropriate institutions and when they are not.

Avner Offer, Chichele Professor Emeritus of Economic History at the University of Oxford, is a Fellow of All Souls College and the British Academy. He was educated in Jerusalem and Oxford. Initially he wrote about land tenure and the economics of war, and published Property and Politics 1870-1914 (CUP, 1981), and The First World War: An Agrarian Interpretation (OUP, 1989) as well as many articles. Subsequently he focused on consumption and the quality of life with The Challenge of Affluence: Self-control and Well-Being in the United States and Britain since 1950 (OUP, 2006) as well as articles and edited books on reciprocity, well-being, working-class experience, and the social determinants of obesity. Currently he is studying the transition from Social Democracy to Market Liberalism. Articles have covered Adam Smith and the invisible hand, the economy of obligation, and the American health system. The most recent book is The Nobel Factor: The Prize in Economics, Social Democracy and the Market Turn (Princeton University Press, 2016, with Gabriel Söderberg). Another strand investigates the links of finance, homeownership, and household debts and assets. In 2018 he will deliver the Ellen MacArthur Lectures in Cambridge on how time horizons define the boundaries between private and public enterprise.
