Tim Hazledine - Rational Fools? Economics and economists before, during and after the GFC

 Registration is closed for this event

It is now ten years since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC). What, if anything, has economics learnt from the experience? Have there been any changes made in the models and assumptions about markets? Any changes to the role economics has in economic policy? Has anything new and challenging been made to the curriculum of an economics degree? Do we now have economists who have learnt from experience?

Tim Hazledine is a Professor of Economics at the University of Auckland. He joined the Auckland University Economics Department in 1992 after two decades living in England and Canada. He was educated at Otago and Canterbury before enrolling at Warwick in 1972 to study industrial organisation for his Ph D.  He has taught at Otago, Warwick, Balliol College Oxford, Queen's University in Ontario and at the University of British Columbia where he was in the department of Agricultural Economics from 1983 to 1992. Professor Hazledine also has experience in government and consulting.

Over the 1991-2 academic year he held the T.D.MacDonald Chair in Industrial Economics at the Bureau of Competition Policy, in Ottawa. He is currently investigating income inequality, well-being policy, and economic reform in developed and transition economies.
