Description

A New Seminar Series hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

Seminar one - Globalisation, Nationalism and Devolution: Promoting localism in an interconnected world

Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Thursday 5th October at 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm in G35

In this inaugural lecture, Professor Kevin Albertson from the Future Economies Research Centre, Manchester Metropolitan University will theorise the conflicting claims of the global, the national and the local on individuals and the democratic governments they form. In “Globalisation, Nationalism and Devolution: Promoting localism in an interconnected world” he will be arguing, amongst other things, that globalisation produces losers as well as winners and the role that an appropriate nationalism and localism might play in shaping the economic and social consequences of modern global forces.

This free seminar, including time for subsequent questions, will take place in the London offices of HMRC and Manchester Metropolitan University Business School.

This booking form relates to the Manchester seminar on Thursday, 5 October 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m..

The timetable is as follows:

5:00 Tea, coffee and light refreshments

5:30 Kevin will speak on ‘Globalisation, Nationalism and Devolution’

6:30 Questions and answers

Kevin Albertson is an eclectic economist with a background in statistics and economics, but now he has escaped (to some extent) from the numerical world of Econometrics into the applied worlds of: social innovation; crime; and the application of classical and behavioural economics to socio-political issues. Kevin is co-author of several books, including the Haynes Guide, ‘How to Run the Country’.

Contemporary Issues in Economics and Policy is a series of monthly seminars to be given at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs offices in London and repeated at Manchester Metropolitan University Department of Economics, Policy and International Business. Each seminar will address an issue of importance in the contemporary world of political economy.

The series is designed to foster national debate, hence its parallel venues. Each seminar will be of interest to policy makers, business leaders, members of the public and, indeed, anyone concerned about the state of the present and the future.

To reach as wide an audience as possible, each seminar will be recorded and the series will be supported by a webpage where the series’ video and blog will be hosted.
