11 November 2014 | The last word on Piketty

  • Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is easily the most talked about economics book of the year, if not the decade. In this public panel discussion, Policy Exchange brings together some of the leading voices on Piketty’s work to discuss what its lasting influence will be.

  • 04 November 2014 | "Teaching character education in schools is a waste of time"

  • Both Nicky Morgan and Tristram Hunt have recently argued for schools to do more to teach ‘character, resilience and grit’. But are these skills really important, and most importantly can they be taught in an effective way which addresses the problems identified? This event will pit two sceptics of the role of formal teaching of character skills against two vociferous defenders of its merit to explore the issue further.

  • 28 October 2014 | The future of the ETS in Europe’s climate strategy

  • This event will ask what role the ETS will play as European climate policy evolves. It will ask whether the ETS should remain the centrepiece of European climate policy, what reforms it needs, whether it can be expanded to include other countries or sectors and whether carbon taxation would be a better method of carbon pricing.

  • 22 October 2014 | Beyond Tech City: How can government support the growth of tech clusters beyond the M25?
