In conversation with Diane Coyle

Posted on 21 March 2022

Last week, Deputy Chairman Anthony Julius spoke with Professor Diane Coyle, economist, former advisor to the UK Treasury and Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, where she co-directs the Bennett Institute and heads research under the themes of progress and productivity.

In this session, Diane discussed her latest book, Cogs and Monsters: What Economics Is, and What It Should Be, a look at how economics needs to change to keep pace with the twenty-first century and the digital economy.

The book explores the enormous problems - but also opportunities - facing economies today if they are to respond effectively to the changes and help policymakers solve the world’s crises, from the pandemic recovery and inequality to slow growth and the climate emergency.
