Interpreting opera through economic theory

27 November 2009

Thursday 21 January 2010

Professor Steffen Huck (UCL Economics)

Economics is largely about interpretation: about questioning and analysing worldly phenomena as the economist finds them; whether they are the pricing policy of a company or the structure of a market. Professor Huck will take economic analysis to a different context, usking key tools, including counterfactual reasoning, to analyse the actions of fictional characters.  He will focus on two examples from Richard Wagner's operas, Tannhauser and Lohengrin.
