Who do you know? Your connections form part of your social capital; the network, shared values, and mutual understandings that encourage trust, facilitate trade, and make cooperation easier. Henry George noted that trust was a pre-condition to trade. Nobel Prize winning economist Elinor Ostrom regarded social capital, along with physical, human, and natural capital, as essential for growth and development.

In this seminar we review the concept of social capital, study its operation in our world, and consider its expression in various forms of social media.

    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.

    A link to join the online seminar will be provided via email before the start of the webinar.
