ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: Global Financial Crisis
Tomorrow evening our friends at the Auckland Uni Economics Group tackle a subject that should interest everyone: the Global Financial Crisis—an event of such so importance it’s already become capitalised. This, from their mail-out about tomorrow night:
At this Tuesday night’s meeting we will begin looking at what is often termed the global financial crisis. It is not surprising that the ‘bust’ resulted in many asking what caused the downturn. But …
- … are the true culprits being identified and placed under the spotlight?
- Or are innocent parties are being blamed?
- Will stimulus, quantitative easing, bailouts and too-big-to-fail get us out of The Great Recession?
- Or will they only make things worse?
These are crucial questions—for what is currently being decided will affect every single one of us for many years to come.
