‘How to think like an Economist’ with Anthony J. Evans

Nearly all introductions to economics are arcane, obscure and difficult to understand or hopelessly heterodox, giving no guide to what most economists actually think and do. The world of models and equations inhabited by economists can often seem far-removed from that of our own.
Anthony J. Evans’ new book ‘Markets for Managers’ is an outlier: an introduction to ‘the dismal science’ that is both lucid and clear (and correct!) whilst giving a good guide to what the mainstream is thinking.In this Liberty Lecture Anthony J. Evans will explain how to think like an economist, providing the tools to incorporate economic analysis into your everyday and business decision-making. Whether you’re a student or part of the working world, this is not one to be missed for essential business, economic and strategic insights.
Anthony J. Evans is a Senior Fellow of the Adam Smith Institute and Associate Professor of Economics at ESCP Europe Business School, specializing in Managerial Economics at the MBA and Executive MBA level.He is a member of the Institute of Economic Affairs’ Shadow Monetary Policy Committee, with appearances in broadsheet newspapers, and on the BBC World Service and Newsnight. His new book, ‘Markets for Managers’ is out now.Doors are at 6.00pm for a 6.20pm start.
