Description

Fact and Fiction in Economics: The Role of Media and Social Media
Wed 20 November 2019, 20:00-21:30
We The Curious
£9 / £7

Nine out of ten economists were opposed to Brexit. Economists support inheritance tax but opinion polls show most people think it is an unfair tax. Most people get their economics from the media, and increasingly from social media, where technical debates become highly polarised. How should economists try to communicate, and what should we expect from reporting of economics?

With Roger Farmer (Warwick University), Marina Della Giusta (University of Reading), Vicky Pryce (Centre for Economics and Business Research), Romesh Vaitilingam (writer and media consultant) and chair, Margaret Heffernan.

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with Triodos Bank.
