In his talk, Cambridge economist Ha-Joon Chang provides the fundamental tools that every responsible citizen needs to understand - and address - our current economic woes.

The talk was chaired by Guardian columnist Zoe Williams and draws on Ha-Joon Chang's latest book: Economics: The User's Guide: A Pelican Introduction, in which he explains how the global economy works, and why anyone can understand the dismal science. Unlike many economists who claim there is only one way of 'doing economics', he introduces readers to a wide range of economic theories, from classical to Keynesian, revealing how they all have their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots.
