On Tuesday, 20 September at 2PM (CEST), Dr. Eoin McLaughlin was our guest in our open seminar series. Dr. McLaughlin is a senior Lecturer in Economics at University College Cork. His research interests are in economic, financial and social history. In one of his current projects the aim is to trace levels of sustainability from the mid 19th century to present day using the Genuine Savings Metric (GS). GS is an indicator propagated by the World Bank, measuring progress and development and is proven as a relevant indicator of sustainable development.
