About This Event

It is often argued that culture resides outside the field of economics and that it is not compatible with rigorous analysis. There are, however, growing efforts to integrate culture into economic analysis and to understand how culture shapes economic perceptions and behavior. 

This event will explore this relationship from several complementary perspectives. Panelists will address the economic implications of cultural fragmentation, the perception of capitalism in Western culture, and how economists can incorporate cultural considerations into their analyses.

If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
