Cambridge Global Challenges


The sixth Festival of Economics, programmed by Diane Coyle (University of Manchester and Enlightenment Economics) and supported by ESRC, includes economists and other experts from around the world who will be debating with each other - and their audiences - some of the key economic questions of our time.

The Festival of Economics invites experts to assess and present solutions to pressing issues such as:

  • Where is the global economy going, and how can we make it work better for people?
  • The unequal spread of wealth in the UK
  • Should we include systems thinking in economic policy-making?
  • Prosperity and the future of capitalism
  • The future of money
  • Robots and gigs, and
  • Trade, Trump, and Brexit

Buy a season ticket for all events between 15-18 November 2017 at £70 full price and £50 concession (but please read the Festival of Economics Terms and Conditions before purchase).
