Lord Nicholas Stern delivers three lectures on climate change and the New Industrial Revolution
As part of the Lionel Robbins Memorial Lectures 2012, Nicholas Stern gave three lectures over three successive days (Tuesday 21, Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 February).
Five years on from the Stern Review, there have been important changes in the world, which are likely to have a profound impact on our response to the two defining challenges of the century, overcoming poverty and managing climate change.
Lord Stern discussed how we can bring economics and political economy to the analysis of our response to these challenges in the context of a special but difficult decade in the global economy.
Presentations and video/audio of these lectures can now be downloaded:
21 February: What we risk and how we should cast the economics and ethics
22 February: How we can respond and prosper – the new energy-industrial revolution
23 February: How do we get there? Building national and international action’
The event was hosted by the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP).
