A guest at the event, alongside others, will be the Turkish economist Daron Acemoglu, professor of economics at MIT in Boston, in dialogue with the EoF Academy. His research interests range from the theory of growth to labor economics, from inequality in income distribution to applied mathematics. Hence, the impact of technology on inequalities and a reflection on the blind spots of economic knowledge will be the two main contributions of the young scholars of the academic network.
Ample space will also be dedicated to the theme of peace. A link is planned with the third International Congress of the Economy of Francesco, in Latin America and the Caribbean, taking place from 4 to 6 October in Colombia, entitled: Weaving economies for peace.
The streaming of the event, entitled “The 25th Hour. EoF (on air) Global Gathering” will be broadcast by the Seraphic Institute, through “web-radio,” and available live on the Economy of Francesco YouTube channel, in multiple languages. Music, in-depth analysis, information, and interaction via social media: this year the young authors of the program have chosen the radio as a narrative place to discuss and share stories, ideas, vocations, and experiences, reaching a wide audience, where all voices can express themselves and be represented and listened to.
Links and contributions from over 30 countries around the world are expected, moments of meditation on the path walked by Francis of Assisi and a program dedicated to historical figures and events.
