RES 2023 APL welcomes Wendy Carlin as speaker: ‘Capitalism, carbon and colonies’


The Royal Economic Society is pleased to announce that the 2023 RES Annual Public Lecture (APL) will be held in person at the University of Glasgow on 13 June and at the University of Reading on 21 June.

This year’s speaker is Professor Wendy Carlin (UCL) where she will be speaking about ‘Capitalism, carbon and colonies – looking back and looking forward’. The lecture will explore the CCC (capitalism, carbon and colonies) model that propelled the 18th and 19th centuries British economy and how it is no longer relevant, and what are the alternatives?

Wendy Carlin is Professor of Economics in the Economics Department at University College London (UCL), Research Fellow of the CEPR and external professor at the Santa Fe Institute. Her research is on macroeconomics, institutions and economic performance, the economics of transition, and evolution of economic research and education.

Established in 2001, our Annual Public Lecture provides an opportunity for school students to watch internationally renowned economists present their research. Principally aimed at sixth form students, the APL has become an established part of the senior school calendar.
