Opinion and comment from UCL academics in the media
After the global financial crisis in 2008, economics was in disarray. Even the Queen was moved
to chide economists for failing to warn about the build-up of debt in
households and banks in the major economies and the threat this posed to
the global economy. She might have added that few economists provided
convincing accounts of why the meltdown had happened. And some advocated
policies in its wake that made things worse, writes Professor Wendy Carlin (UCL Economics) in The Conversation.
