Schumpeter Lecture 2023 with Branko Milanović


Oesterreichische Nationalbank, Veranstaltungssaal, Otto-Wagner-Platz 3, 1090 Vienna


The Schumpeter Society and the Oesterreichische Nationalbank cordially invite you to the Schumpeter Lecture 2023 to be delivered by the Serbian-American economist Branko Milanović (City University of New York and London School of Economics).

Branko Milanović’s main area of work is income inequality in individual countries and globally, including pre-industrial societies. In honour of Schumpeter's seminal work "Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy", published almost 80 years ago, he will contrast it with his own book "Capitalism, Alone" (2019). Specifically, Milanović will pose the question of why Schumpeter’s predictions did not come to pass and how accurate our own predictions today might be in 80 years.

The keynote lecture will be followed by a response given by labour economist Alyssa Schneebaum (Vienna University of Economics and Business) and a Q&A session with the audience.

The agenda can be found here.
