Institute of Economic Affairs

A highlight of the economics calendar is the Institute of Economic Affairs’ annual conference. On Friday, 8 November, 42 economists travelled by coach to Loretto School where they participated in a series of discussions intended to develop their critical thinking skills. Presentations by Dr Steve Davies, Professor Philip Booth, and Ewen Stewart, delved deeper into global inequality, economic growth, and, of course, Brexit! A fabulous opportunity for students to engage in some intellectual jousting with colleagues in Scotland.
