In 1925 the economist John Maynard Keynes wrote a pamphlet entitled ‘The Economic Consequences of Mr Churchill’,in which he argued that it would be a disaster for the British economy to re-establish the gold standard at the pre-war parity. In this timely talk,Prof. Jesper Jespersen will discuss how the world’s economic condition today is similar to that of the early 20th century,particularly in relation to the Southern European members of the Economic and Monetary Union.
Prof. Jespersen will also discuss the likely future of the Eurozone over the coming years,both politically and economically.
Please note that this talk will take place in the Club Room at Churchill College rather than the normal location.
Entrance and refreshments are free for members and Cambridge University members.
