Tomáš Sedláček: Economics of Good and Evil. The Quest for Economic Meaning from Gilgamesh to Wall Street

In his worldwide best-seller, “Economics of Good and Evil,” the Czech economist Tomáš Sedláček interrogates the mathematical, analytical, seemingly value-free approach adopted by modern economic theory. Economies and economics continually raise questions of morality, and by extension, of good and evil. Based on his book, this experimental collage – a survey of economics from the Gilgamesh epic to Wall Street, featuring grotesque sketches and musical interludes – has played to full houses since its premiere at the National Theater in Prague. Tomáš Sedláček, who also appears in the production, ends the evening with an audience discussion on current economic issues.

Tomáš Sedláček teaches at the Charls University in Prague, is Chief Macroeconomic Strategist at SOB, the biggest bank in the Czech Republic, and member of the National Economic Council in Prague.

The performance is a project initiated by the group LiStOVáNí in collaboration with Lukáš Hejlík, Alan Novotný and Tomáš Sedláček; director: Lukáš Hejlík.
