Economics short films of Lindau Meeting

Nobel Laureates, Stiglitz, Pissarides, Mundell, McFadden and Myerson discuss The Crisis

This year at Lindau, Economics Laureates met with young economists to discuss their discipline. Palgrave Macmillan and our colleagues from Nature Video recorded these conversations. They feature Laureates Stiglitz, Pissarides, Mundell, McFadden, Myerson, Akerlot, Aumann, Maskin, and Phelps.

This short film, shot on location at the 2011 Lindau Meeting, features interviews with young researchers and Economics Laureates and presents fresh perspectives on the major causes of the Economic crisis as well as its effect on economic research. The interviews in this film are unique and offer cogent and informative comment.

We are also proud to present an interview-based film exploring the intellectual contribution of Behavioral Economics and a short film about the Economic Sciences meeting.

Additional films of lectures recorded at the 2011 Economics Meeting can be viewed by visiting the Lindau Mediatheque.

Don’t forget, you can share these videos with your colleagues or students – forward to a friend.

Christmas Vacation

As the end of term approaches, here are some handy tips for ensuring you have the resources you need to study:

Our vacation borrowing starts on Tuesday 13th December: books taken out on or after that date will have a return date of Wednesday 11th January and cannot be recalled any sooner.

If you are in Swansea, the library opening hours are on our website. Scroll down to find the date you want to check as hours do vary slightly over the vacation.

If you are going home for the holidays, you can always access any of our e-resources using your Athens account (make sure you set the cookie on your computer first). You can find all our business databases and journals using iFind Research. This term we added new business resources: Mintel Oxygen and Global Markets Navigator plus upgrades to EBSCO Business Source Complete and ThomsonOne – all now available off campus. We also have e-books for Business & Economics: use iFind Discover, search on a general topic (e.g. ‘marketing‘ or ‘economics‘) and apply “Format” filters for “Book” and “Online”. The results will then contain links to online editions – you’ll need your Athens login to access these.

See our Business & Economics help pages for more guidance – our contact details are also on there if you need assistance. The Business team will be taking a break from 24th December to 3rd January.
