Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building

Speaker: Dr Atif Ansar, Said Business School, University of Oxford 
Respondent: Dr Simon Taylor, Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge

Since the 19th century, one prevailing view in the field of economics has been the ‘economies of scale’ and that bigger projects are more efficient in the long run. Is this really the case with respect to energy mega-projects? In this seminar, Dr Atif Ansar (Saïd School of Business, U. of Oxford) challenges these assumptions through a comprehensive analysis of dams.
