Zombies in London

by John Quiggin on November 25, 2010

I’m speaking at the London School of Economics tonight, basically recapping my Zombie Economics book. It’s a bit late notice, but in case any London-based CT readers are interested, I thought I would give the event a plug here.

Would have loved to be there, but I’ll listen to the podast I guess. Let me know if you’re coming anywhere near Bristol.

Or Amsterdam for that matter.

Worse for me – I’m seeing this at ~4 PM London time, so not even my private Concorde can get me there in time :(

Neat trick Barry, given that I’m in the BL and it’s still only 3.25pm. Might be there, National Express permitting, but if I am, Quiggin, you owe me one for short notice. 3 days would be nice.

I was actually there…alma mater, being in London, all that.

But I was late (8.15 ish*) and everyone seemed to have left. So I haven’t as yet found out whether JQ is English enough to drink bitter or Oz enough to insist upon frozen lager.

*Yes, yes, sorry, but an editor I get paid by wanted a chat.

Good lecture, John, ta. It was worth getting home late for . I especially liked the ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ quote.

Remember, I’m on English time, being in the USA. You’re on metric time. The conversion is tricky (subtract daylight savings, add Boxing Day, multiply the ‘:’ by ‘;’
…….)

Gotcha. One of us was probably moving faster than the other, so there’s a degree of relativistic dilation to add in as well.

This is the URL for the talk [mp3]: http://tinyurl.com/2ezjml3
(couldn’t hyperlink this para for the life of me – don’t know why)

By the way, the LSE podcast page is a treasure trove. So many interesting talks although a few are marred by patchy audio quality.

Yes, and it’s been cloudy, cold and rainy here, unlike in Sunny Olde England, so there undoubtedly was some humidity effects.
