Event description
Three days of discussion and debate brought to you by the Economics Observatory and Bristol Festival of Economics.

About this event

17 – 19 November 2021, We The Curious, Bristol

In a new partnership, and in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the hugely successful Festival of Economics, the Economics Observatory and Bristol Ideas are bringing together economists, policy-makers, academics and the public to discuss the key societal questions and challenges that Covid-19 and its aftermath have brought. Over 2,000 delegates and audience members from across the UK will join us in Bristol city centre for a three-day programme of dynamic and important panel discussions, interviews, book launches, podcast recordings, networking and debates.

“These are times of great change and uncertainty in the economy. The economy and economics will be irrevocably changed by the crisis. There is great public interest in economic issues. Talking Economics will bring together academic economists, practitioners of economics, and challengers from both inside and outside the subject to debate with members of the public. It will celebrate economics, an intellectually powerful discipline with a rich history, and also look at its recent failures. Economics has a profound influence on politics and public policy: it is too important not to have a public debate.”
