Barry Eichengreen on the Great Depression and the Great Recession

Barry Eichengreen speaks about his new book Hall of Mirrors: The Great Depression, the Great Recession and the Uses—and Misuses—of History (OUP USA, 2015). He also makes some interesting comments on the Eurozone early in the interview: the fetters of the Eurozone are worse than the gold standard!

  1. Hello,
    When will these Keynesian central planner types realize that their economic model has been proven to be a failure? This constant manipulation of all aspects of the economy, and the monetary system itself has not given rise to the kind of economic stability that is desperately needed. People do not learn from past mistakes when they are allowed to continue making the very same mistakes. It really is that simple.
