Why do people pay more attention to economic prosperity and development than parity and justice nowadays? Why did the U.K. give birth to modern economic theories? Did economists truly create economics? In Trade and Nation: How Companies and Politics Reshaped Economic Thought,Yale Professor of Sociology Emily Erikson will provoke your thoughts on these issues. On October 21, Professor Erikson will share her insights on the historical progress of economic thought, research methodologies, and academic transformation with us during a moderated discussion by He Yang, Lecturer of School of Economics at Henan University.
