ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: Desert Island Economics

Here’s the note on this week’s discussion from our friends at the Auckland Uni Economics Group:


What is this man missing that all of us enjoy every day without noticing?

What does a sixteenth-century Scotsman have to say to a modern-day Peruvian hill tribe?

What does that hill tribe have to teach today’s economists and epistemologists?

And how do the answers to these questions provide the foundation for the whole field of economics?

All these questions and more will be asked and answered tomorrow night at the Auckland Uni Economics Group weekly discussion….

WHEN: Thursday 21 March at 6pm
WHERE: Case Room 3, Level 0, University of Auckland Business School, Grafton Rd

All welcome!
