Leading economic expert Linda Yueh delivers her vision for restoring faith in the free market.

We live in a world where experts of all stripes are struggling to win over the confidence of the general population. Last year, the Bank of England said it was stepping up its efforts to minimise a ‘twin deficit’ of public understanding and trust in an area that has come under particular fire recently: economics. In a timely defence of her profession, and by drawing on ideas put forward by several titans of economic theory, Linda Yueh, the former Chief Business Correspondent for BBC News, opens the Free Thinking festival 2018 with her take on how we fix the globalised free market to benefit the one and the all. The lecture will be followed by an interview conducted by Philip Dodd and your chance to ask questions.

Linda Yueh is Professor of Economics at London Business School and a Fellow and lecturer in Economics at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University – where she is director of the China Growth Centre (CGC). She is the author of The Great Economists: The Thinkers Who Changed the World and How Their Ideas Can Help Us Today.

Philip Dodd helped to set up BBC2’s The Late Show, is an award winning broadcaster and a regular presenter of Radio 3’s arts and ideas programme Free Thinking.
