What's Past is Prologue: The Global Economic Crisis

The current financial crisis in North America and Western Europe has raised fears that we could be headed for the next Great Depression. Is it possible, though, that we can keep history from repeating itself by looking at today's global economic crisis through the lens of hindsight? What lessons can be learned from comparing and contrasting previous depressions such as those occurring in Latin America in the 1980s, or Japan in the 1990s? Can studying the experiences of these countries help the economies of North America and Western Europe recover more quickly and emerge stronger than ever?

Join us February 2 as Distinguished McKnight Professor and adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Tim Kehoe discusses the critical financial depressions of the recent past--and what lessons we can glean from them for today.
