About Time: Examining the case for a shorter working week

Various Speakers 

CASE/new economics foundation event As the economic crisis deepens, it is timely to consider the arguments for moving towards much shorter, more flexible paid working hours - sharing out jobs and unpaid time more fairly across the population. Following the new economics foundation’s highly-acclaimed report 21 Hours: Why a shorter working week can help us all to flourish in the 21st century, CASE and nef are bringing leading experts together to examine the social, environmental and economic implications. They will consider how far a shorter working week can help to address a range of urgent social, economic and environmental problems: unemployment, over-consumption, high carbon emissions, low well-being and entrenched inequalities. The event features: • Juliet Schor, Professor of Sociology at Boston College, and author of Plenitude: The New Economics of True Wealth, and The Overworked American; • Lord Robert Skidelsky, Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick and biographer of J. M. Keynes, with Dr Edward Skidelsky, University of Exeter, and co-authors the forthcoming book, How Much is Enough? Economics and the Good Life. • Tim Jackson, Professor of Sustainable Development at Surrey University, and author of Prosperity without Growth.

IGC-STICERD-DESTIN Development Lecture: Creating Pathways for the Poorest - Linking safety nets, livelihoods and access to finance

Syed M. Hashemi (Director, BRAC Development Institute)

People at the very bottom of the economic ladder are often excluded, or exclude themselves, from microfinance. Their income is usually too low and unreliable to permit repayment of loans or investment in anything but basic food consumption. In some countries the very poor are served by safety net programs, which usually take the form of cash transfers, food aid, or guaranteed employment schemes. This lecture will provide an overview of the graduation model and the pilot implementation 'graduation model' can create pathways out of extreme poverty, adapting a methodology developed by BRAC in Bangladesh.
