Eckhard Hein on Post-Keynesian economics

A talk by Eckhard Hein (Berlin School of Economics and Law).

An initiative of the Hertie Students Rethink Economics Club.

Our first guest speaker, Eckhard Hein, will give an introduction to a school of economic thought that is detached from what is found in Macro textbooks. He will furthermore explain policy implications that arise from a Post Keynesian approach to Economics. At the end there will be some time for questions from the audience.

Some snacks will be provided.
