O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

‘Liberalism as Causal: How the Knowledge Society Became the Great Enrichment’

This workshop will engage with key themes of Deirdre McCloskey’s Bourgeois Era trilogy, with a focus on the causes of the kind of economic growth triggered during the industrial revolution. Contributions are welcome both from economic and historical perspectives as well as cognate fields of inquiry, either reacting explicitly to the Bourgeois Era, or by drawing on research relating to themes advanced in the trilogy. Contributions of work-in-progress and from postgraduate students are very welcome. A limited number of travel grants are available to postgraduate students wishing to participate. Proposals should take the form of a short (250w) abstract, sent to katie.jones@buckingham.ac.uk by 19 June 2019.
