Seminar with Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta

Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta was in conversation with Andy Haldane on Tuesday 9 March.

About the seminar

In Spring 2019, the UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer commissioned a global independent review on the economics of biodiversity, to be led by Professor Sir Partha Dasgupta, Frank Ramsey Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Cambridge. Professor Dasgupta’s review presents the first comprehensive economic framework of its kind for biodiversity. It calls for urgent and transformative change in how we think, act and measure economic success to protect and enhance our prosperity and the natural world.

Sir Partha joined the Bank of England’s Chief Economist, Andy Haldane, to discuss the review, its findings and why they matter for us all.
