Thursday 16th NovemberThursday 16th November 2017

12.30pm – 1.45pm, We The Curious (At-Bristol)

Is standard economic forecasting and analysis fit for purpose? Or should economists be adopting methods from complex systems?

This debate pits two leading practitioners against each other. Doyne Farmer is a world-leading authority on agent-based modelling. Catherine L. Mann is in charge of economic forecasting at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which produces some of the most influential economic predictions. The event is Chaired by Romesh Vaitilingam.

This event is hosted by The Institute for Advanced Studies and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Complexity Sciences.
