Imagination in Economics: Uncertainty, Metaphor, and What Economics Can Learn from the Romantics

Are we over-reliant on reason?

Is over-reliance on reason at the root of the present economic crisis? Richard Bronk, author of The Romantic Economist (CUP, 2009), argues that economies are driven by creativity, fear and emotion. To be followed by audience Q&A session with Geoff Mulgan. Sponsored by the Forum for European Philosophy.
