Department of Economics and Centre For Macroeconomics public conversation
Date: Wednesday 21 January 2015
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Barry Eichengreen
Popular understanding of the Great Depression shaped the response to the Great Recession. The experience of the Great Recession will change our understanding of the Great Depression.
Barry Eichengreen (@B_Eichengreen) is Professor of Economics and Political Science at the University of California-Berkeley. His new book is Hall of Mirrors: the Great Depression, the Great Recession, and the uses - and misuses - of history.
The Department of Economics at LSE (@LSEEcon) is one of the largest economics departments in the world. Its size ensures that all areas of economics are strongly represented in both research and teaching.
The Centre For Macroeconomics (@CFMUK) brings together world-class experts to carry out pioneering research on the global economic crisis and to help design policies that alleviate it.
