“The Great Economists” by Linda Yueh. Our interview, and chance to win her book!

We interview the academic and TV presenter about her choices of history’s most important economists, and ask what we can learn from them in solving our current problems. Also, win a copy of Linda’s book in our competition.

From Adam Smith, to Robert Solow, Linda Yueh’s latest book examines twelve important economists and suggests how we might use their thinking as we tackle modern society’s economic problems.  How do we explain low wages?  Is the west likely to experience 1930s style debt deflation?  Who wins in a trade war?  In this short video I ask Linda about her choices and go on to get her thoughts on the state of modern economics.  We’ve got another competition too – I think you’ll love this book and we have five copies of it to give away.  You’ll find the question and how to enter below.
