Thomas Homer-Dixon, Professor at the Centre for Environment and Business in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo, speaking in the panel "Exploring Complexity in Economic Theory" at the Bretton Woods Conference on April 10, 2011.
The Institute for New Economic Thinking takes a broad view of economic research and supports it in many ways: through its main grant program, through working groups it organizes, and via conferences, panels, and other smaller gatherings of scholars across the globe.
Institute scholars normally publish their work in journals and books. While many – but far from all – of this work appears in working papers sponsored by the Institute and other leading research forums, the Institute also attempts to make its research results accessible to a wider public on its website. Below is a sampling of interviews featuring Institute scholars explaining the significance of their research in non-technical terms.
