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:
