The Coalition and the Economy

281.44 KiB archive in "Documents".

Professor Brian Morgan of the University of Wales Institute Cardiff was one of our guest speakers at the Society weekend school in February 2011. Brian Morgan is Professor of Entrepreneurship, and Director, Creative Leadership and Enterprise at UWIC. His earliest research was on Maynard Keynes and the Keynesian - Monetarist debate and he then went on to research the contributions of Nobel Laureates, Sir John Hicks and Milton Friedman to economic issues. After a spell at an Australian University he returned to London to become a Senior Economic Adviser in Whitehall, before moving to Wales to take up the post of Chief Economist for the Welsh Development Agency. So we were delighted when Professor Morgan agreed to talk to the society about the state of the UK economy and the performance of the Coalition government in managing the national finances.

Here are the slides which Professor Morgan used to illustrate his talk - a presentation which cut through the jargon and made clear aspects of the economy which lay people have often found hard to fathom.
