Sam Bowles is an economist and a Research Professor at the Santa Fe Institute. Wendy Carlin is a Professor of Economics at University College London. They’re giving a community lecture called After Trump and Brexit: A New Economics (Forget Red and Blue), on Tuesday, July 17, at 7:30 at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.
We discuss the deep flaws in the neoliberal economic model and suggest alternative ways of teaching and understanding economics—and practical ways to apply them to the economy in order to solve some of our most urgent social and environmental problems. And we discuss their new CoreEcon curriculum.
