Is Anything Wrong with Economics?

By Jonathan B. Wight

The New York Review of Books Foundation, the Dan David Prize, and the Fritt Ord Foundation seem to think there is something wrong.  They are hosting a conference in New York on March 14-15, in which (likely) heterodox speakers will bring forth issues of concern. 

The central topic to be discussed is: What’s Wrong With the Economy—and With Economics?

Below are two panels of interest:
