This autumn we’re delighted to welcome the Adam Smith Institute’s head of research Sam Dumitriu to speak about the gig economy at Economics in Action in London and Warwick.

Sam will take a look at the gig economy from a micro and macroeconomics point of view. He will dig into Information Asymmetry, how it relates to occupational licensing and, the risks of government failure and regulatory capture. He will also examine some macroeconomic issues of the gig economy such as the increased labour supply, lower NAIRU and the lower interest rates they lead to.
