Economists didn't see 2008. Political scientists didn't see 2016. Which truly is the more 'dismal' science?

Join us for the Economics Society’s BIG DISCUSSION of the year, as we explore numerous issues regarding the LSE's two eponymous fields:

• Too much economics in political science? Too little political science in economics?
• Is there a ‘dismal ignorance’ towards both disciplines?
• Do both still suffer from ‘physics envy’?
• LSE or LSEPS?

We have an incredible line up of speakers. Representing the Economics corner, we have:

• Professor Oriana Bandiera (Sir Anthony Atkinson Chair in Economics)
• Professor Ronny Razin

In the Political Science corner, we have:

• Professor Simon Hix (Harold Laski Professor of Political Science and LSE Pro-Director of Research)
• Professor David Soskice (School Professor of Political Science and Economics)

Finally, the debate will be chaired by Professor Sir Timothy Besley (W. Arthur Lewis Professor of Development Economics and School Professor of Economics and Political Science).
