This session from the 67th CFA Institute Annual Conference will take place on Tuesday, 6 May at 11:30 a.m. PDT. Some of the topics that will be covered include: What is economics, and what is its crucial role in and broader responsibility to society? How have stories and narrative shaped economic theory? Why does studying the history of thought help us get rid of the intellectual brainwashing of the age, see through the intellectual fashion of the day, and take a couple of steps back? What is the truth that only appears in financial crises, and how do we address the need to counterbalance today’s mainstream approaches to economics?
Moderated by Attila Koksal, CFA, Unlu Securities
