St Mary’s University series of Webinars continues at 1pm on Thursday, October 8th with an event hosted by the former Labour MP for Birmingham Edgbaston Gisela Stuart.

The joint webinar with the Institute of Economic Affairs will be discussing what we can learn in 2020 from someone who many regard as the ‘father’ of the Social Market Economy, Ludwig Erhard and who was widely considered to be one of the key people responsible for the German economic recovery in the 1950’s.
