Anotace akce:

Their theories have dominated modern economy: Friedrich August von Hayek, apologist of the free market, and John Maynard Keynes, proponent of state interventions.  Keynes’ plea for deficit spending, widely invoked – and often overstrained – by politicians, shaped the European economy of the post-war decades. Hayek, defender of the Austrian School of economics, was highly influential with his theory of capital and economic cycles for the decades thereafter. How do these theories influence current debates and what do they have to offer for the future of Europe’s economy? These will be highlighted in a debate with Lord Robert Skidelsky, arguably the most notable expert on Keynes. His three volume biography of the British economist (published in 1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes, including the Lionel Gelber Prize for International Relations and the Council on Foreign Relations Prize for International Relations. 

Lord Robert Skidelsky is Professor em. of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. He is the author of The World After Communism (1995) (American edition titled The Road from Serfdom). Skidelsky was made a life peer in 1991 and elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1994.
