Would Policymaker Use of Complexity Analysis Make Economics More Relevant to the Real World?

Thu 16 November 2017, 12:30-13:45

Is standard economic forecasting and analysis fit for purpose? Or should economists be adopting methods from complex systems? This debate pits two leading practitioners against each other. Doyne Farmer is a world-leading authority on agent-based modelling. Catherine Mann is in charge of economic forecasting at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which produces some of the most influential economic predictions. Chaired by Romesh Vaitilingam.

In association with University of Bristol.

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with
