The 2nd session of the 4th Edition will take place on 22th November, 2018, at 3 p.m. (Auditorium 2, Quelhas, nr.6, Lisboa) with the title Capitalism without Capital: The rise of the Intangible Economy, by Jonathan Haskel and Stian Westlake, with presentation by Professor Pedro Neves.
Haskel and Westlake bring together a decade of research on how to measure intangible investment and its impact on national accounts, showing the amount different countries invest in intangibles, how this has changed over time, and the latest thinking on how to assess this. They explore the unusual economic characteristics of intangible investment, and discuss how these features make an intangible-rich economy fundamentally different from one based on tangibles.
