Authenticity – Diane Coyle


Authenticity has great salience in our times because new information and communication technologies have greatly expanded the scale and scope of the inauthentic.

Diane Coyle OBE – Enlightenment Economics and BBC Trust

Diane is founder of consultancy firm Enlightenment Economics, a member of the BBC Trust and a Visiting Professor at the Institute for Political and Economic Governance, University of Manchester. Her latest book is called ‘The Soulful Science’ and is about what economists really do and why it matters. The book surveys key developments in economics during the past 20 years, advances which have revolutionised economists’ ability to analyse society and improve policies. Her previous bestseller was ‘Sex, Drugs and Economic’ which takes a fun look at the application of economics to all sorts of subjects. Earlier books including ‘Paradoxes of Prosperity’ and ‘The Weightless World’ address the economic and social impacts of new technologies.
