How Economics Corrupted Us

Economist Jonathan Aldred reveals the extraordinary hold economics has on our morals and values. In his new book Licence to be Bad – How Economics Corrupted Us, Aldred tells the story of how a group of economic theorists changed our world, and how a handful of key ideas, from free-riding to Nudge, seeped into our decision-making, and, indeed, almost every aspect of our lives. This event was recorded live at Thursday 27th June 2019. Discover more about this event here: https://www.thersa.org/events/2019/06/how-economics-corrupted-us
