The Return of Depression Economics?

The Great Depression could never happen again - or could it?

Economist Professor Paul Krugman gives a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science on Thursday 24 June at 6pm, explaining his view of recent global economic trends.

Hailed as "the best American economist under forty" Professor Krugman teaches at MIT. The lecture previews his new book, The Return of Depression Economics , published the same day by Allen Lane.

The lecture will be chaired by Professor Richard Layard, Director of LSE's Centre for Economic Performance, which is hosting the event with Penguin Press.

The lecture in the Old Theatre, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2 is free and open to the public. For further information contact LSE Events office on 0207 955 6043.
