This week, we bring you a recording of this year’s New Statesman and Speri prize lecture, delivered by the award-winning Professor Simon Wren-Lewis. In this timely address, the Oxford professor and former advisor to the Bank of England warns that ignoring economists “is a bit like ignoring your doctor – if he can’t tell you the exact year you’re going to die”.
