Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speakers: Evan Davis, Professor Deirdre McCloskey

The Great Enrichment after 1800 increased the income of the poor by well over 900 percent. Professor Deirdre McCloskey does not believe that either bourgeois or Marxist economics can explain this phenomenon. Ideological change rather than savings or exploitation, she argues, created the affluence of the industrialised world.
