Economics in the Pub - Scroogenomics


From: Tuesday December 16, 2014, 6:00 pm

To: Tuesday December 16, 2014, 10:00 pm

Is Christmas a healthy annual boost to the economy? Or is it, in fact, an international exercise in wealth destruction? Joel Waldfogel’s Scroogenomics asserts that Christmas gifts given are less-informed choices, worth less than the money spent, and leave recipients less than satisfied, creating a social deadweight loss. Join us for drinks and nibbles at the next Economics in the Pub session which will be held on Tuesday, 16th December. The series is designed to encourage debate, networking and interaction amongst members. More details to follow - in the meantime, hold the date! Topic:                  Does Christmas create a deadweight loss?
