On Monday (not wishing to look ahead of the all important weekend that’s about to arrive) we have the next instalment of Conversations in Economics in the Department (room 125 in HumSS Building, 1pm on Monday).
We’ll be discussing the contributions of Angus Deaton, the British economist who just won the Nobel Prize “for his analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare”.
We’ll focus on poverty and welfare on Monday, and I’ll be introducing the discussion, so not so much from me now as I start to prepare my material for that!
I’ll be basing much of my research on the following as starting points:
Also, I just came across Deaton’s semi-autobiography of sorts – pleasant reading for a weekend afternoon… see you on Monday!
