Webinar Series: Reading Schumpeter Theory of Economic Development

Dear all,

The Economic Development WG is happy to support the following Webinar Series organised by the Innovation and History of Economic Thought Working Groups. "Reading Schumpeter: Theory of Economic Development"

We've all heard bits of Schumpeter's theory – creative destruction, innovation, business cycles and entrepreneurship – but have any of us actually read him?
Join us in taking a dive into Schumpeter's work by reading the Theory of Economic Development with Schumpeterian scholars.
In this four-part series, we will complete and discuss this book 50 pages at a time. Attached you have the pdf of the version of the book we are going to use.
Prior to every webinar, we will be providing notes/questions and comments on the chapter on hand.
This is the outline of the reading schedule.
