Causes and Consequences of the Global Economic Collapse
Associate Editor and Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times, London
Host Harry Kreisler welcomes Martin Wolf of the Financial Times to discuss the economic crisis, including its global origins focusing on the interplay between surplus countries such as China and debtor countries such as the United States. Wolf evaluates the response of America's political and financial leaders, defines a course of action for the Obama administration, and offers a formula for the revitalization of global economic institutions such as the International Monetary Fund. He also speculates on the future of capitalism and assesses the role of politics in preventing the stabilization of the global economy.
