Professor Henrietta Moore recently spoke at a workshop hosted by Rethinking Macroeconomics called The Institutions of Globalisation: Globalisation Hub Workshop Summary
Recently, Professor Henrietta Moore participated in a Rebuilding Macroeconomics workshop on The Institutions of Globalisation. Rebuilding Macroeconomics is a Network started by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research. It was started after the failure of conventional macroeconomic models to predict, and then respond to the financial crash of 2008.
In this talk, Professor Moore calls for the reinvention and renewal of societies institutions, and the necessity to bring them in line with the challenges that we face in the 21st century. For the full talk, see below:
