Marshall Conference 2022
The Marshall Society of the University of Cambridge is very excited to announce the 2022 Marshall Conference. This event will be coming back bigger than ever with a full in person conference planned for Saturday 5th February 2022 at the University of Cambridge.
The theme of this conference is "CRISIS: Dealing with Economic Catastrophe" which seems fitting following the massive shock the global economy felt following the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year economic activity plummeted, jobless claims soared and debt rose massively. This is the perfect time to discuss how economics should respond to crisis. Is national debt a problem? Is the macroeconomy inherently unstable? How do we deal with longer term structural challenges?
The scope of the conference will be broad with discussions about how to respond to sudden macroeconomic shocks as well as longer-term structural problems like an ageing society and the housing crisis. We have some incredibly esteemed and experienced speakers attending the conference. Two of our speakers have real world policy making experience because they have previously been members of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee. Others regularly make media appearances to discuss economics and have widely published work in academic circles. We are also incredibly excited to announce that we are introducing a debate for the first time into the conference. This will be an amazing opportunity to hear two veteran economists clash on one of the most important issues of our time - how should government respond to economic crisis.
This year the event will be held at the Lady Mitchell Hall on the Sidgewick Site. This is a massive auditorium that seats up to 500 people and is located right next the economics faculty and the lecture blocks. This will give students are real insight into what studying economics at Cambridge is like. We also plan to have a representative of the faculty talk to students about what the degree is like and provide some top tips on applications.
