Conference 2017

"Means or an end? Perspectives on Economic Growth"

Growth is the goal of almost any economic model; achieving it, maintaining it, expanding it – the center piece of various analytical approaches. In the 2017 edition of the Glasgow Economic Forum we will look at the effective role of growth in the economy. The first day will mainly focus on strategies for achieving growth from a historical and theoretical perspective. The second day will be dedicated to a variety of interdisciplinary methods of dealing with consequences of growth.
