The annual Marshall Lectures are a major event in the calendar of the Faculty of Economics, are held in the memory of Alfred Marshall (1842-1924) who founded the Economics Tripos in 1902. Professor Marshall was one of the most influential economists of his time, uniting key concepts such as supply and demand, marginal utility and the costs of production in his book, Principles of Economics in 1890.

The Marshall lectures for 2017 will be delivered by Professor Thomas Piketty, (Ecole d’Economie de Paris/Paris School of Economics.

Professor Piketty will be giving two lectures on ‘Reflections about inequality and capital in the 21st Century’. Both lectures are being held in the Lady Mitchell Hall at the Sidgwick Avenue Site on Wednesday 3rd May at 5pm and Thursday 4th May at 10am.

Professor Piketty obtained his PhD from London School of Economics at the age of 22, after which he initiated his first academic job as an Assistant Professor at MIT . Professor Piketty’s work—much of which is underpinning his hypotheses developed in his book “Capital in the Twenty-First Century”—has been published in top peer-reviewed journals, such as the American Economic Review; the Quarterly Journal of Economics; Journal of Political Economics; and the Review of Economic Studies.
