Talk: Economics for real life in the twenty-first century – Professor Peter Boettke


  • 29/02/2016
The IEA is delighted to invite you to a talk about how economics can impact every day life in the 21st Century. The talk will be given by Professor Peter Boettke and will be linked to his recent book “Living Economics: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.”

Living Economics illuminates how economics affects all walks of life, whether in the marketplace, voting booth, church, family, or any human activity. Boettke believes that economics is not merely a game to be played by clever professionals, but a discipline that touches on the most pressing practical issues at any historical juncture. The wealth and poverty of nations are at stake; the length and quality of life turns on the economic conditions individuals find themselves living with.
