Extreme Economies

Extreme Economies

What does economics look like to people living at the world’s margins. From disaster zones and displaced societies to failed states and hidden rainforest communities, the lives of people who inhabit these little-known places tend to be ignored by economists and policy makers. But the world’s overlooked extremes offer a glimpse of the forces that underlie human resilience, help markets to function and cause them to fail, and will come to shape our collective future.

Richard Davies, on whose book this event is based, and the panel will explore places where the economy has been destroyed, distorted, and even turbocharged to find economic pioneers whose lives help us reflect on our own.
