Can Citizens be Economists?

Can citizens be economists? The RSA launched the Citizens’ Economic Council the week after the UK voted to leave the European Union, with the timely question: can citizens really be economists, and what might the extent of their role and influence in shaping national economic policy be? A panel of experts discuss the value of citizen voice that is informed, deliberative and forward thinking.
