Tomáš Sedláček, the chief macroeconomic strategist at ČSOB and author of Economics of Good and Evil, spoke at the 67th CFA Institute Annual Conference, addressing the following questions:
- What is economics, and what is its crucial role in and broader responsibility to society?
- How have stories and narratives shaped economic theory?
- Why does studying the history of thought help us get rid of the intellectual brainwashing of the age, see through the intellectual fashion of the day, and take a couple of steps back?
- What is the truth that only appears in financial crises, and how do we address the need to counterbalance today’s mainstream approaches to economics?
