Tomorrow at UCLA, Randall Wray, Frank Partnoy, and Robert Brenner will discuss “The Economic Crisis: Causes, Consequences, and What’s Next” as part of the annual colloquium series of the Center for Social Theory and Comparative History.
The speakers will consider the origins and results of the ongoing global economic crisis. They will give special attention to the rise of finance and the role of financial markets and institutions in its onset, spread, and ultimate consequences. How has the meltdown of Wall Street, its bailout by government, and its apparent recovery affected the macroeconomy and the future of finance itself? Are the great banks and other leading financial institutions now more or less likely to experience new meltdowns in the foreseeable future? Will the real economy see a new surge of growth, continuing stagnation, or renewed crisis? These are only some of the issues that will be addressed at this colloquium.
