SPERI’s event will look at the key issues within this debate and ask:

  • What are the key ideas of ‘Corbynomics’? And what’s new?

  • Is Corbynomics a potential new economic paradigm or just Keynesianism in new clothes?

To explore these questions and lead a discussion we will be joined by:

  • Professor Andrew Gamble – SPERI Professorial Fellow and author of many distinguished books on political economy
  • Dr Jonathan Perraton – SPERI Associate Fellow, Department of Economics

The teach-in event will be held in the Richard Roberts Auditorium between 2.00-3.30pm.
