W2 academic lecture – Stephanie Kelton: Rethinking fiscal policy
Rethinking Capitalism undergraduate module Week 2: Rethinking fiscal policy by Stephanie Kelton
This week’s lecture by Stephanie Kelton will focus on fiscal policy: government decisions on spending and raising money, how it manages the public debt and how this effects economic growth.
The Rethinking Capitalism undergraduate module provides students with a critical perspective on these ‘grand-challenges’ and introduces them to new approaches to economics and policy which challenge standard thinking. The module draws on the book “Rethinking Capitalism”, edited by Mariana Mazzucato (Director of IIPP) and Michael Jacobs (Visiting fellow in the UCL School of Public Policy). It features guest academic lectures from some of the chapter authors. These academic lectures are combined with presentations by policy makers working at the frontline of the issues under discussion, including from the Bank of England, the UK Treasury and government departments dealing with innovation and climate change.
