Hear author, FT columnist and Radio 4 presenter Tim Harford in conversation with Second Home co-founder Rohan Silva.
The two will discuss Tim's new book Fifty Things That Made The Modern Economy, which tells the stories of the inventions, ideas and innovations that have helped to create the economic world we live in.
From the shipping container to the gramophone and the TV dinner, Tim exposes the economic rationale behind the items and interactions that shape our everyday lives.
In doing so, he helps to piece together the vast jigsaw of modern culture and offers us insights into how we are, where we are and where we might be going.
Tickets are free for members and £3 for non-members.
