"National wealth: what is missing, why it matters" with Cameron Hepburn and Kirk Hamilton Chaired by Ian Goldin

This book talk is part of the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival 2019, the Oxford Martin School is the Festival Ideas Partner

Economists Professors Cameron Hepburn and Kirk Hamilton look at what makes up national wealth and asks why some nations are wealthy and why some are poor.

How did wealthy nations become rich? And how should nations manage their wealth for the future? Hamilton and Hepburn say these are some of the most important questions in economics. They cannot be answered until you understand how wealth is created, destroyed, stored and managed. In National Wealth, they have gathered a series of expert contributions on the subject.

Hamilton is visiting professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science and emeritus lead economist in the development research group of The World Bank. Hepburn is director, economics of sustainability programme, Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School, and professor of environmental economics, Smith School of Enterprise and Environment, University of Oxford. Discussions are chaired by Professor Ian Goldin, Senior Fellow at the Oxford Martin School.
