Speaker information

Professor Steffen Huck, UCL Economics

Economics is largely about interpretation: about questioning and analysing worldly phenomena as the economist finds them; whether they are the pricing policy of a company or the structure of a market. Professor Huck will take economic analysis to a different context, using key tools, including counterfactual reasoning, to anlayse the actions of fictional characters. He will focus on two examples from Richard Wagner's operas, Tannhauser and Lohengrin.
