Several YSI working groups will hold parallel meetings, in which young scholars from across the globe will present and discuss their research.

TRACK 1: The YSI Innovation and Complexity Economics Working Groups will study bubbles in finance, science and society.

TRACK 2: The YSI Philosophy of Economics Working Group will discuss the role of expertise in post-truth society.
