Golden Jubilee Event – Economics in SFFH

Have you ever wondered how the brave hero in that fantasy trilogy is funding his adventures? Or where the money for the spaceships comes from? How would magic and capitalism intersect? How would different economic systems influence the development of magic or technology in SFFH stories? Then join Allen Stroud, Jo Lindsay Walton and Hannah Kaner at 12:30 on Saturday as they discuss Economics in SFFH.
