Contemporary Issues in Economics and Policy: A New Seminar Series hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs
In conjunction with Manchester Metropolitan University Centre for Future Economies
Seminar five – Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technologies in the new political economy
Venue: Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Tuesday, 30 January 2018 (5:00 pm to 7:00pm in G34)
In this informal seminar on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technologies, Gavin Brown of Manchester Metropolitan University will introduce the founding principles of these disruptive innovations and the role they play, and will go on to play, in the new political economy.
Recognising Bitcoin as the tip of the iceberg Gavin will go on to explain the risks and rewards for investors, policy makers, regulators and businesses. An evaluation of the fundamental value for the birth of this new asset class will be established through historical innovation comparisons, behavioural biases and bubble dynamics along with the forecasting of the likely future winners and losers.
This seminar, including time for subsequent questions, will take place in the London offices of HMRC on Tuesday 23 January 2018 at 2.30pm and will be repeated at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Tuesday 30th January 2018 at 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Lecture Theatre G34
This registration is for the Manchester session.
The series is designed to foster national debate, hence its parallel venues. Each seminar will be of interest to policymakers, business leaders, members of the public and, indeed, anyone concerned about the state of the present and the future.
