Inequality, Wages and Finance

29 November 2016, 14:00 - 18:30
Room 2, The Open University, 1-11 Hawley Crescent, Camden Town, London NW1 8NP

Factor Income Distribution, Work and Employment: Social and Economic Perspectives is an ESRC-funded series of six seminars taking place at the OU (London), Nottingham Business School, Leeds University Business School and Birmingham City University. The aim of the series is to explore factor income distribution from a plurality of perspectives, including heterodox approaches (such as post-Keynesianism, Kaleckian and radical economics) as well as mainstream analyses. The gender lens of feminist economics will also be considered, together with institutional perspectives and contributions from other disciplines.

Inequality, Wages and Finance, hosted by the Open Political Economy Group (OPEG) at the OU, is the final seminar in the series. Participants from government, industry and the university sector are warmly invited to attend and PhD students are especially welcome. It will be followed, on Wednesday 30 November, by a postgraduate workshop, organised by OPEG research students.
