The Economics department is continuing our regular series of faculty talks showcasing the research happening in the department and panel discussions on important current events of the day. Please come along and ask any questions, or just come and listen to how economists think about these issues.
On Dec 6th (from 12:30-1:30pm) we will be holding a panel discussion of the current Climate Crisis that is the major crisis facing humanity and the recent COP Summit in Egypt. We will be discussing the economic issues related to this topic and how economic analysis can help us solve these problems.
Our panel (in alphabetic order) is:
Ray Connell — (Investment banker)
Brett Day — Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute (LEEP)
Mario du Preez — Economics Lecturer
Tim Worstall — Adam Smith Institute
