Nicholas Wapshott, author of the new book Keynes Hayek: The Clash that Defined Modern Economics, is hosting a debate in New York City on November 8 that will pit these two thinkers’ ideas against each other once again. The event is by registration only, and you must register by this Wednesday, November 2. Please help me spread the word so we can have a substantial Austrian presence there.
For the Keynesians, John Cassidy and James Galbraith will speak, and for the Austrians Edmund Phelps and Larry White.
To register, email haroldevans -at- thomsonreutersevents dot com.
Here’s the text of the invitation:
Keynes vs. Hayek: An Economics Debate
Was John Maynard Keynes correct that government can fix the mass unemployment of a slump? Or is that a dangerous delusion as argued by his arch critic, Friedrich von Hayek?
Please join us for an Oxford-style debate where you will be invited to vote after presentations by speakers pro- and anti- Keynes. The event, on publication of Nicholas Wapshott’s Keynes Hayek: The Clash That Defined Modern Economics, is part of Thomson Reuters event series, A Conversation with Sir Harold Evans.
