Capitalism – The Anglo- American Liberal Democratic Model

Capitalism, the dominant economic system in today’s world is also widely credited for the wealth and progress of nations. However, the great success stories often come with a growing polarization of society between haves and have nots. In this interactive seminar, Michael Bucher looks at the Anglo-American experiment, and asks what went wrong and why true capitalism is the only sensible path to reforming capitalism.

    MONETARY POLICY, ASSET INFLATION AND INEQUALITY

    Thu, June 17, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT


    In this webinar, Pr. Louis Philippe Rochon takes a fresh look at the links between monetary policy, asset bubbles and inequality.

    It is often argued that asset inflation and real estate bubbles are the result of accommodative monetary policy: low interest rates encourages borrowing for speculative purposes.

    Undoubtedly, this has been the case as an increasing part of borrowing is not meant for productive purposes.

    In this webinar, Prof. Rochon will argue that this is a misreading of the facts. Rather than laying the blame at the feet of low interest rates, bubbles may be caused by growing inequality as well as by the excessive deregulation.

    Learn why governments need to re-regulate borrowing and, introduce such policies as financial transaction taxes to prevent asset inflation and specifically real estate bubbles.
