Andrew Haldane, Chief Economist of the Bank of England, will present a public lecture at The University of Nottingham on Tuesday February 23 2016.

The Centre for Finance, Credit and Macroeconomics (CFCM) in the School of Economics at the University will host the lecture ‘The Dappled World’.

The financial crisis has led policy makers around the world to question and rethink the established set of frameworks and paradigms for understanding the modern economy and financial system. A number of Central Banks have developed, or are in the process of developing, new tools and policy levers to better understand and moderate the dynamics of economic and financial systems.

The lecture will explore how drawing on a wider array of scientific and academic disciplines can help us better understand the economic and financial system we live in today and frame policy choices to improve the functioning of this system – from history to psychology, meteorology to engineering, statistics to complexity theory.

The lecture is open to the public and will take place from 5 to 6pm in lecture theatre A48 in the Sir Clive Granger Building on University Park Campus. More information can be found on the website.

The School of Economics has established a public lecture series attracting high profile speakers. Martin Wolf (The Financial Times) and Martin Weale (Member of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee) will present lectures on February 29 and March 8 respectively. All are welcome to attend these events and no booking is required.

Notes to editors: The University of Nottingham has 43,000 students and is ‘the nearest Britain has to a truly global university, with a “distinct” approach to internationalisation, which rests on those full-scale campuses in China and Malaysia, as well as a large presence in its home city.’ (Times Good University Guide 2016). It is also one of the most popular universities in the UK among graduate employers and the winner of ‘Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015. It is ranked in the world’s top 75 by the QS World University Rankings 2015/16, and 8th in the UK by research power according to the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
