Cakeconomics #1


Geography and Development economics

28 February 2017, 18:00

Manchester, UK


The first of our cakeconomics series explores the interplay between space and development economics. The event features two talks, “Money flows like Mercury” by Martin Hess, UoM’s senior lecturer in Human Geography and Economic Geography, and “Predicting economics trend from demographic data” by Simon Edelston, veteran global equity fund manager.
Unique to cakeonomics, instead of traditional Q&A we invite to have cake and chat after the talks. It doesn’t matter what you are studying, cakeconomics is open to all!
Format: Two twenty-minutes talks followed by a casual discussion and cake.

Venue: Room 1.218University Place, University of Manchester

Time: 28th of February, 18:00-19.30
