The global economy is in crisis and teetering on the edge of collapsing into a new Great Depression. If it does, the economic and geopolitical consequences will be catastrophic. In this global economic crisis course, Richard Duncan provides a comprehensive explanation of how this calamity came about. Topics include the abandonment of economic orthodoxy, the end of sound money and the consequences of unbalanced trade. An easy to understand analytical framework that explains all aspects of the crisis is introduced; and the rationale for the government's policy response to the crisis is made clear. With this knowledge, the student will be well positioned to anticipate how the global economic crisis will evolve during the months and years ahead.
Richard is the author of three books on the global economic crisis and has more than 25 years of experience working in financial markets.
