A World on the Edge
Join us for a conversation with
Lord Gus O'Donnell & Professor Richard Thaler
Chicago Booth in London
This event is held in partnership with Pro Bono Economics
Tuesday 18 July 2017, from 6pm
The current world order is rapidly changing. The aftermath of the shocking results from last year’s popular votes in the US and UK, as well as the snap general election in the UK, have us scrambling to comprehend the deep divisions within our societies.
To understand what lies behind these turbulent times, we are delighted to be hosting an intimate, and no doubt illuminating, conversation with two of the greatest minds in economics today. Lord Gus O’Donnell, a prominent government economist and former Cabinet Secretary under three Prime Ministers, will be joined by Professor Richard Thaler, one of the founding fathers of behavioural economics and renowned for pioneering the nudge theory.
The Chicago Booth London campus and Pro Bono Economics, an organization that helps charities and social enterprises understand their impact and value, welcomes you to be part of this insightful discussion.
