Julie Nelson TEENTALK

Economics & People

5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Have you considered becoming an economist? At its core, an economy is about providing goods and services for human well-being. But many economists and critics preach that an economy is something far different: a cold and heartless machine that operates outside of human control. Do you despise the visible greed and self-interest of the economic system? Julie Nelson knows that the machine can also have a soul. And she will explain you how human relationships and ethics can be part of the picture.

Registration is compulsory
