Keynes vs. Hayek: An Economics Debate
Was John Maynard Keynes correct that government can fix the mass unemployment of a slump? Or is that a dangerous delusion as argued by his arch critic, Friedrich von Hayek?
Please join us for an Oxford-style debate where you will be invited to vote after presentations by speakers pro- and anti- Keynes. The event, on publication of Nicholas Wapshott’s Keynes Hayek: The Clash That Defined Modern Economics, is part of Thomson Reuters event series, A Conversation with Sir Harold Evans.
