Government economic forecasting is never far from the headlines. Now the question which started rumbling at the time of the 2008 crash is getting louder around Brexit: can we trust economic expertise to guide us through the biggest policy challenges of the day?
To discuss whether it is time to 'democratise' economics, our panel included:
- Joe Earle, co-author of The Econocracy: The perils of leaving economics to the experts
- Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive of the New Economics Foundation
- Chris Giles, Economics Editor of the Financial Times
The event was chaired by Dr Emily Andrews, Senior Researcher at the Institute for Government.
