Exploring Economics Event Series: Product Differentiation in the Market for Economists

A Talk by Dr. Arthur Turell, Research Economist, Bank of England

Economics has been under intense scrutiny since the Great Financial Crisis, whether it be the models that economists use, the predictions economists make, or the diversity of thought of the economists themselves. In this talk, Arthur ll look at some of these criticisms and at the evidence of whether we have enough heterogeneity in both our economics, and our economists. He will be trying to ascertain whether economics has been insular in the past, what we might do about it, and what the opportunities may be to strengthen the discipline in the future.

Dr. Arthur Turell is a researcher in economics at the Bank of England, and a visiting scientist to the plasma physics group at Imperial College London. He has written with Andy Haldane about an "interisciplinary" economics model.
