The GEN book club meets every couple of months on the last Thursday of the month. We take it in turns discussing popular economics/policy/data books and articles from publications like The Economist and The Atlantic.

To come along to the event you don’t have to have read the book or article, though having some idea of what we’ll be discussing will be handy! We hope to have a general discussion and then chat about how the ideas and themes involved in the book or article in question could apply to our work. Beverages will be available for purchase at the bar.
