Talking economics

In the context of six pretend radio programmes, each of these six audio clips tackles a specific topic: rationality, confidence, money, regulation, business, globalisation, while referring to the principles currents of economic thinking.

Each economist quoted is the subject of a biography which summarises their career and the purpose of their work.

Choose your indicator

GDP measures the flow of wealth in a country but tells us nothing about its distribution, the health or educational level of its population nor the environmental consequences of growth.

This multimedia exhibit allows you to classify the countries in the world by their GDP, per capita GDP and Human Development Index (HDI), and to create your own indicator based on data available to the UNDP.
