Forever Blowing Bubbles: Asset bubbles, economic policy and sustainability
Leading financial economist and historian Professor Michael Hudson has just finished touring Australia from October 12 – 27, 2009. Professor Hudson was one of twelve economists recognised for predicting the GFC.
He is a government advisor to many nations, and is fast gaining a reputation in policy circles as the go-to man in GFC hotspots. This has seen him visit Iceland and Latvia this year to assist policy developments. From Mexico to China to the depths of Wall St, Hudson is an insider to the latest global policy trends.
After his presentation Professor Hudson was joined by Associate Professor Steve Keen and Crikey financial journalist and business commentator Adam Schwab for a panel discussion moderated by Centre for Policy Development Director Miriam Lyons.
