  • THE NEW ECONOMICS OF THE BUSINESS CYCLE
    Session 3

    2018.08.06

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

    Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how abandoning the Gold Standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. Will this revolutionary shift usher in a new era of growth or lead to yet another wave of cyclical depressions? What is the role of land in this process? This five-lesson course will highlight structural changes to the U.S. economy since the demise of the World War II-spawned financial order, also known as the Bretton Woods system.

  • Capitalism – One Size Fits All?
    Seminar
    6:30 pm-9:30 pm
    2018.08.14

    Capitalism – One Size Fits All?

    The word capitalism lends itself to broad generalizations that highlight the importance of private property and free markets as the supreme arbitor of economic outcomes. However, national trajectories give form to many varieties, suggesting that history and culture do play a major role in shaping markets and organizing society.

    In this seminar, Michael Bucher explores national variations in the practice of capitalism, and examines successes and failures in maximizing progress and minimizing poverty.

    Michael Bucher is a freelance researcher/writer who has written for the Shanghai Business Review, on topics in business, trade, and international relations relating to China. He has presented lectures at HGSSS on China’s Silk Road Project, Public Banking and German Mittelstand, and is now focused on the topic of Comparative Capitalism, a new series looking at cross-country variations of modern Capitalism.
