    • Is the growth in the emerging economies additional or are we growing more slowly?


      from Gresham College Added 32 0 0

      The three eminent speakers look at the limits to world economic growth from an environmental and economic perspective. Will inflation caused by rising primary product prices be likely to be the key constraint on economic growth? Douglas McWilliams, Thras Moraitis and Mike McWilliams consider whether this constraint will bite at a sufficiently slow rate for the impact of the extra growth in emerging economies to mean that the West will have to grow more slowly. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/is-the-growth-in-the-emerging-economies-additional-or-are-we-growing-more-slowly Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

        from UVM Continuing Education Added 56 0 0

        Before a policy is decided on, the goals of policy must be clearly defined. That said, what exactly are the goals of monetary policy in the U.S.? In this tea, monetary policy is evaluated and explored with an ecological economic lens - where the goals are defined as ecological sustainability, just distribution, and efficient allocation - and the idea of developing alternatives to existing policies is encouraged. Presenter: Josh Farley Monetary Systems and Macro Policies for a Steady State Economy 9/28/2011 This topic is being worked on by a group of Gund fellows, affiliates, and students. This event is part of the weekly Gund Tea Series, an opportunity for affiliates of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics and the broader University community to engage in robust discussion about topical research, current events, and relevant theory.
