Better Living Through Economics
The School of Economics is proud to present the 2018 Geoff Harcourt Visiting Professorial Lecture presented by John Siegfried, Professor of Economics, Emeritus at Vanderbilt University.
Economic research has made fundamental contributions to many important public policy decisions that have improved countless individuals’ lives. It may surprise many people to learn that economics research built the intellectual foundation for eliminating the American military draft in favour of an all-volunteer army in 1973. This lecture will explore this example and many others that illustrate the wide-ranging applicability of economic reasoning.
