2010 Milestones Lecture

24 November 2010

Milestones Lecture November 2010: History and the Financial Crisis by Professor Martin Daunton

“Commentators on the recent financial crisis often draw analogies with the 1930s, and ask if we are facing a serious economic depression; they wonder if a banking crisis will lead to economic collapse; whether there will be a lurch to ‘beggar my neighbour’ policies of protectionism and manipulation of exchange rates. This lecture explores not only the relevance of historical analogies, but also asks how history is used for rhetorical and polemical purposes in current debates.”

The transcript is available to download.
