Barry Eichengreen will talk about this new book in the Ed Burke Theatre (TCD Arts Block), 9am-10am on Tuesday January 20th. All welcome!
- First and only systematic comparative analysis of the two great economic and financial crises of the last 100 years
- Provides an integrated account of experience in the US and Europe, which together constituted the epicenter of the recent crisis and were similarly at the center of the Great Depression
- Economic analysis is leavened by anecdote and personalities, with key figures in both crises introduced and humanized
- Shows how the history of the Great Depression shaped how policy makers perceived and responded to the Global Credit Crisis, but equally how the recent crisis will in turn re-shape how we see the Depression
