Thomas Porcher in conversation with Eduardo Rabasa

Cineteca Rosalío Solano - Escenario Gales / Llwyfan Cymru
Read more

The economist Thomas Porcher (France) presents his wildly successful book, now available in Spanish, Traité d’économie hérétique. In the book, the author questions the discourses of neoliberal economics, such as the myth of individual success, public expenditure and the rupture of the social model, and free exchange and the power of multinational companies. Well-known for his unorthodox positions on the economy, at this event, Porcher will also offer arguments and mechanisms in terms of practices that are alternatives to the dominant mindset. In conversation with Eduardo Rabasa.

Simultaneous interpretation from French to Spanish available

Teatro de la Ciudad

Strongly against the idea that economics is only for experts, the Cambridge University professor, Ha-Joon Chang (South Korea), makes economic theory edible, and even delicious, by uniting it with his passion for cookery in his latest book, Edible Economics. The author takes the stories of ingredients from around the world to illustrate clearly and accessibly contemporary economic thinking, and challenges notions that are strongly rooted in today’s discourses, such as globalization, climate change, immigration, and austerity. In conversation with Eduardo Rabasa.

Democracy in the technological era

Cineteca Rosalío Solano - Escenario Gales / Llwyfan Cymru
Read more

In recent years, we have seen how profound technological changes have had important political consequences, not always aligned with the values of democratic societies, something that might lead to the question of whether technology represents a threat rather than a force for good. Three experts will talk about matters linked to democratic security in the context of dizzying technological change: Ha-Joon Chang (South Korea), who lectures in Economics at Cambridge and writer of several books including the recent Economics: The User’s Guide; Thomas Porcher (France), economist and author of Traité d’économie hérétique; and Carissa Véliz (United Kingdom), lecturer in Philosophy at the Institute for Ethics in AI and author of the book Privacy is Power. In conversation with Eduardo Rabasa.
