Globalisation and Welfare

James Meade Memorial Lecture

Progressive free-traders – people who believe both in domestic equity and in the promise of globalisation – are feeling chastened these days. What’s left of the case for globalisation? How can we make it work?

Paul Krugman is one of the world’s most famous living economists. As a researcher he invented the ‘new trade theory’ and won the John Bates Clark Medal for the best American economist under 40. He is a prolific author and writes a twice weekly column in the New York Times. He holds a chair at Princeton.

This event is organised by the Department of Economics and Centre for Economic Performance.
