Here’s what’s on offer at tomorrow night’s Auckland Uni Economics Group meeting:
This week, we discuss the greatest lesson economics has to teach everyone else—yet one that few economists even know – and even fewer philosophers.
We will also look at something everyone else has to teach economists—if only economists were able to listen.
The first topic involves one of the great and fundamentally benevolent conclusions of economic thinking, and the great economist who promoted it. The second, the “axiomatic concepts” that most economists take for granted, but without which the discipline can’t even get off the ground.
So join us as we talk about the very ideas on which economics is grounded--and the great idea, the conclusion of economic thinking, that economics has to teach others.
We look forward to seeing you there.
