Debating at Trinity College, Dublin

I’ve been invited to participate in a debate at Trinity College, Dublin, by the College Historical Society.  Founded in 1770, it’s the oldest student debating society in the world.  The motion is interesting, setting fiscal austerity against a possible Keynesian alternative, and reading “This House Believes in the Long Run, We’re All Dead.”  This was of course a famous quote from Keynes.

The debate is on Thursday October 31st, and I can just do it, heading out after an editorial discussion on my new children’s book on the day before, and flying back in time to speak at Harrow School on the day after.
