This is your chance to chat in a relaxed atmosphere with one of the world’s great minds in the history of economic and econometric ideas.

Numbers are strictly limited – please register quickly!


Mary Morgan is Professor of History and Philosophy of Economics at the London School of Economics and Vice President (Publications) at the British Academy.

She also holds a professorial appointment at the University of Amsterdam and is a visiting fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. Her major area of scholarship is the history of economic and econometric ideas. Her recent award winning book, The World in the Model (Cambridge University Press, 2012), considers modelling as a method of enquiry, the imagining and imaging of economic ideas (to consider the way that images emerge and are developed over time to give form, and greater clarity, to economic thinking), model experiments, the uses of simulations and a range of other issues.

Mary has made important contributions to the history of economic thought, especially with regard to the history of econometrics, the historical development of measurement in economics, and the evolution and methodological implications of the use of economic models.
