RES Annual Public Lecture 29th and 30th Nov 2016

  • Published Date: 29 August 2016

The RES is pleased to announced that the 2016 Public Lecture: "In Search of the Perfect Match- the economics of picking our partners and jobs" will be given by Professor Philipp Kircher and held at the Royal Institution London on 29th November 2016 and 30th November 2016 at the University of Manchester.

Finding the right match is important in the labour market - but also in the 'marriage market'. While economics might not always know whom businesses and people desire most, it offers valuable lessons on whom they will eventually be able to get. And while discussion of labour markets typically focuses on unemployment, an important new question has emerged about how many people are in the ‘wrong’ job - jobs that either use too few of their skills or require too much. This lecture will convey key insights from economics on the search for workers, jobs and life partners.

Tickets will be on sale through Eventbrite from 12th September 2016, with priority to school groups (of up to 10).  Further details and a link for tickets will be placed at
