THINK Conference - Institute of Economic Affairs
After the financial crash of 2008, much of the world’s population lost their faith in markets and capitalism has been unfairly portrayed as an enemy of the poor. Think will bring together some of the best speakers in the world to explain why this isn’t the case, and to highlight how the creativity and innovation fostered under free markets has helped to halve world poverty in recent decades. From the conventional to the obscure, come to Think to learn about everything from the ‘State of the Economy in the UK’ to the ‘Economics of your Favourite Football Team’, or the ‘Economics of Game of Thrones’! At this conference you’ll learn about some of the most exciting and innovative ways that we can address the most pressing challenges of our time including health, education, and what we can do to lift the poorest people in the world out of poverty.
