Event description

Description

The turn to economic liberalisation from the 1970s on used ideas from the academy to address the problems of over-regulation and economic policy making by deal doing. But once underway, what began in a promising intellectual ferment degraded rapidly into a deregulatory formula. In this talk Nicholas Gruen will explore what those ideas were, where they worked and where they didn’t. And based on his own work will sketch out numerous ideas that might have replenished the intellectual larder as we went.

Martin Wolf will provide a commentary on Nicholas's proposals before an open discussion.

This will be followed by a wine reception and networking.
