The Festival of Economics aims to provoke wider learning and debate about economics which is critical to the lives of everyone. The RES has sponsored this vibrant exchange of views between economists, media and the public for a number of years.
This year’s festival looked at How to speak money, the benefits of a more local economy, the economics of obesity and diet, what happens when quantitative easing ends, whether robots will take all the jobs in the future, the economics of crime and punishment and what will make the housing market work for all.
RES members were able to take a special half price season ticket offer and we can now offer the webcasts of the Festival live. View the 2014 Bristol Festival of Economics playlist
