News PPE Forum: Future Lives 15.11.2019

On Wednesday, Mr Shah – our Head of Economics – led a seminar on the cost of future life, with a view to establishing the price of climate change.

Controversial and challenging perspectives were explored as he led the girls through a series of moral and mathematical dilemmas, returning repeatedly to the question of whether a life that does not yet exist can be considered equal to one which does. This was the first of this half term’s two PPE Forum meetings: next week, we will welcome Professor Robert Hazell from the Constitution Unit at University College London.
