‘I told you so!’ How economics can use the past to predict the future

On November 2nd at 17:00, CEPH will host ‘I Told You So’: How economics can use past disasters to improve the future in McHughs Bar and Restaurant, 29-31 Queen’s Square, Belfast.

This event is open to all and is an opportunity to join several of the island’s finest economic historians for a roundtable discussion as they look back at some of the most disastrous periods of world history, and how we can use these to arm ourselves against an uncertain future.

Pandemics, financial bubbles and infrastructure will all come under fire as we delve into some of the biggest mistakes made in policy history. Hosted by a stand-up comedian and featuring three award-winning authors and economists, this event exemplifies the best qualities of academic outreach, and if you have any interest in economics or the past, we actively encourage you to join us.
