One thought on “The Labour Party’s 2016 NEW ECONOMICS lecture series: Mazzucato, Stiglitz, Varoufakis, Ha-Joon Chang et al

  1. All talks take place in London. London must be the centre of everything of which the Labour Party is concerned. Or, perhaps, new economic thinking would link the economy with geography– as it all that economic stuff takes place somewhere–hell even the cloud is a server somewhere. Seriously, remind the well-meaning MP that the industrial revolution is the one thing that DID NOT take place in London and that is what transformed the lives of most ordinary Britains.
