For more than forty years Nobel laureate, bestselling economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has fought for a fair, just and liberal future.

Widely considered the voice of 21st century liberal thought both in the United States and across the globe, 2008 Nobel laureate for Economics Paul Krugman combines the erudition and insight of a renowned scholar with the immediate relevance, clarity and originality of thought expected of a columnist at The New York Times.

A former professor at LSE, Princeton, Yale and MIT, perhaps the world’s leading theorist of international trade relations, and a passionate advocate of a fairer and more democratic world, he joins the How To Academy to present his insights into the economics driving our public policy decisions.

In this talk, Krugman will debunk the economic myths and lies that cloud political debate, bringing his insight to bear on major issues from the Housing Bubble to the Financial Crisis, Brexit to the EU. Incisive, authoritative and accessible, this talk will arm you with a far richer understanding of the competing ideas and ideologies playing out behind the headlines.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear America’s most renowned economist turn his attention to the most pressing issues facing Britain today.
