What Happened to Knightian (and Keynesian)
Uncertainty Post WWII?: A Philosophic History

Watch the video below


Join us this November for a talk by Eric S. Schliesser, of the Ghent University. In his talk, Schliesser will discuss the displacement of Knightian uncertainty from economics after 1945 by two new strategies. He will look at this discarded theory that could no longer be articulated, or even recognized, by the new theories that displaced it. Schliesser will also discuss the recent return to the concept of economic uncertainty in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008.

The lecture takes place on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 3:30pm EST in Room 100, Visual Arts Centre (VAC), at the Western University.
