Professor Sarah Smith is giving an inaugural lecture which will take place on Wednesday 21 March 2012 at 6 pm in the Reception Room, Wills Memorial Building.
The current government wants people to give more to charity as part of its Big Society. So far, many of its ideas, such as prompting people to give at ATMs, are drawn from behavioural economics which looks to "nudge" people into doing things. This lecture looks instead at more standard economic tools. It will assess the current state of donation and at what role there might be for tax incentives to encourage giving.
