Why is Macroeconomics Such a Mess?

Old Theatre, Old Building, London School of Economics, 6.30-8.00pm, Monday, 10th October 2011

Speaker: Professor Lord Eatwell

There is very little agreement across the economics profession as to what macroeconomics actually consists of. Seventy-five years after the publication of Keynes'sGeneral Theory this lack of agreement has led to a weak and confused response to the international financial crisis/recession. In this lecture John Eatwell will identify the underlying flaws in much macro-economic analysis and suggest and (uncomfortable) way forward. This event marks the publication of his latest book The Fall and Rise of Keynesian Economics co written with Murray Milgate.
