The New Normal - The Future of the Global Economy

Join economist, James Galbraith - Recipient of Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought - in a formal lecture on "The New Normal - The Future of the Global Political Economy."


Goldbraith notes in an interview in Washington Monthly: "...there is the big problem: How to recapitalize the household sector? How to restore the security and prosperity they’ve lost? How to build the productive economy for the next generation? Is there anything today that we might do that can compare with the transformation of World War II? Almost surely, there is not: World War II doubled production in five years."
