Topic: Is the West Over? What Would Keynes Say? Speaker: Sylvia Nasar, James S. and John L. Knight Professor of Business Journalism at Columbia University Really smart people have argued that the western model of economics and democracy have reached its limits since at least 1848. Might they finally be right now? What with the worst financial crisis since the 1930s, a nasty first world recession, Islam-terrorism and rising sea levels? Professor Nasar draws on the thinkers from her latest book, Grand Pursuit: The Story of Economic Genius, and the historical record to parse the evidence.
